The Gordon Institute for Performing and Creative Arts (GIPCA) invites proposals for inclusion in two weekend events. Directors and Directing: Playwrights takes place from 23 to 26 August 2012, and the first South African Live Art Festival takes place from 22 November to 2 December 2012, both in Cape Town.
Following the popularity of last year's directors and directing symposium, GIPCA acknowledges the need for the existence of such a forum as an annual event; a space for theorists, professionals and students of the theatre to come together and talk about key issues facing those who work in or watch or write about the theatre. This year, the focus is on playwrights and writing for the theatre.
It will include theatre visits, performances, and informal talks, but primarily will comprise a symposium with a variety of panels. Interested applicants should send a topic and an abstract of no more than 350 words for a presentation of 10-15 minutes, including name, e-mail address, landline and mobile numbers, as well as a 100 word biography. Applications should be sent to . The deadline for applications is Monday, 25 June 2012.
Proposals for the Live Art Festival are invited in two categories: young/emerging artists and established artists. Proposals for work from young/emerging artists will be considered, for an award to the value of R5 000. While the size of the project for established artists is not restricted, GIPCA is unlikely to award more than R20 000 per project. The application deadline is Friday, 31 August 2012.
