    Open Call SICK! Festival Commissions

    In collaboration with Dutch Performing Arts, SICK! Festival is offering two commissions of €4,500 for early- to mid-career artists based in the Netherlands.
    The commissions are designed to develop new works of contemporary performance and dance that resonate with the festival’s thematic interests for presentation as part of SICK! Festival in March 2019. Through partnerships with Manchester’s diverse communities, its health and charity sectors, academic institutions and other arts organisations, we will invite selected artists to bring their own personal and artistic perspectives to issues of urgent importance to this fast-changing city. We are particularly interested in works that reflect the physical, mental and social challenges faced by individuals and communities in Manchester. We are seeking applications from artists who can demonstrate a strong working methodology rooted in substantial research and/or personal experience. In particular, we are seeking works which, whilst potentially rooted in personal experience, have scope beyond the autobiographical. As well as demonstrating a rich development practice, the artists we select will also possess the ability to create engaging, high-quality public works of power and originality.

    The offer
    Successful applicants will benefit from:
    €4,500 commission
    Residency time with technical support and accommodation
    Dramaturgical support from SICK! Festival’s highly experienced creative team
    Professional support in developing applications to other funders for the development of the project
    Opportunities to collaborate with academic, clinical or other professionals and individuals with personal experience of the subject addressed.
    Opportunities to premiere the finished work within SICK! Festival 2019
