THE SWALLOWSFEET COLLECTIVE PRESENT
OOPS FESTIVAL 2019
20-24th March 2019
OOPS is a movement to be different, to stand up and make bold choices. In our current unsettled times, we’re not the first and we hope we won’t be the last to look to artists for inspiration and direction. The Festival is a place for artists and audience to build a sense of community, to collectively reflect on what moves us now and what will move us in and towards the future.
Open call for Artists
We are searching for exceptional international live performance makers, visual artists and film makers who use their practice to respond to or escape from their current surroundings. We welcome submissions from artists working in all mediums with emphasis on the body as the central form of expression.
This is a paid opportunity that is funding dependent. We cover accommodation in Brighton, an allowance for travel expenses and performance fees for each company. We aim to bring empowerment to independent dance makers through collaborative practice and international exchange.
