Presented by Word of Warning + Contact
Manchester’s twenty-second micro-marathon of the bizarre, the bold + the beautiful takes over Contact on Saturday 1 October — with a daytime of performance installations, one-to-ones, and interventions, followed by an evening full of short shows.
The call for artist’s proposals is now open — so if you would like to take part in what is probably England’s longest running Live Art event, please read on…
Artists working in Live Art, contemporary performance, time-based media, and interdisciplinary arts are now invited to submit proposals; work can be in any relevant artform/medium, though some live presence is desirable.
For full details and to apply please go to bit.ly/Emerg22.
Proposal Deadline: Friday 5 August, 5pm.
Our annual platform for Live Art and contemporary performance, Emergency offers a sneak preview of new live work over a single day every Autumn — we expect to present about 20 short works throughout Contact at this 22nd edition on Saturday 1 October (timings tbc).
