Description Of Opportunity:
This encounter of Caribbean artists in the archipelago of Boriken (Puerto Rico) is born from the urgency of embodying our Sea of Islands as an antithesis to the current segregation of the Caribbean. The main objective is to unite and exchange creations, sensibilities, resistances, and knowledge among our Caribbean islander neighbors, through the art of performance. From Boriken (Puerto Rico), one of the oldest colonies in the world, this call is launched for the production and presentation of original performance pieces by islander artists living in the Caribbean.
This first edition of Mar de Islas performance encounter of the Caribbean will be held from the 3rd to the 9th of May 2021.
6 artists from 6 different islands will be selected to gather and create our Sea of Islands.
3 ecosystems are proposed: the sea, the forest, and the city. Each artist will have the possibility of working in one of these ecosystems in order to create an on-site performance piece. The artists will have a residency period for creating the artworks prior to their public presentation.
In addition to the performances, the encounter will have a pedagogical offer through a series of performative workshops available to the general public. These workshops will be taught by local artists, but also by the selected artists who wish to offer a workshop. These workshops will be taught by local artists, as well as by the selected artists who wish to offer a workshop.
The encounter will feature an opening act at the University of Puerto Rico with a discussion together with activists, academics, artists and thinkers from the Caribbean.
