How’d Birdie Get to Where We've Gone?

The Peace Barn, Deep River, Connecticut
Sunday July 8 - Saturday July 14, 2018

This year we will be accepting applications exclusively from individual performing artists.  Material will be built around the theme of impermanence.  Residents will collectively create a site-specific dance film portrayed through a surrealist lens.

Women only, of all definitions, are welcome to apply.  No previous dance or performance experience is required.  We highly recommend reading through all FAQs before submitting.  

Please send the following as one PDF to by Sunday May 13th:

1. Personal Information:

Phone number
Zodiac sign

2. Your Artist Manifesto (500 words or less)

3. In 200 words or less respond to the question: How’d Birdie Get to Where We’ve Gone?

4. As an individual, create a five-minute or less movement video that physically defines impermanence to you, sent as a youtube or vimeo link.

This is an opportunity to us show how you move; it is best not to overthink the execution.  Successful videos have been shot on an iPhone. We are not looking for an interview-style description; you may choreograph an original piece, create a character study, experiment with sound and sourced imagery, etc.

5. (optional) What impact would The Anchors Aweigh Scholarship have on your personal circumstance?

This is a partial tuition scholarship awarded to one artist in need.  Applicants from myriad racial, cultural, and socio-economic backgrounds and transgender expression will be given special interest in the selection process.
