call out: artist proposals for all-ages live art. d/l 27 february 2019

Word of Warning and Z-arts are now calling for proposals for Haphazard 2019, our 5th free ‘all ages’ live art day taking place on Sat 27 Apr 2019, 12-3pm in and around Z-arts, Manchester M15 5ZA.

This is not live art for children but live art for all ages - and we mean from tot to timeworn, 8 months to 80 years - so work should have appeal for adults and children alike (even if the kids need to explain it to the adults!)

From experience, what work best are big surreal images, interesting repetitive movement and nothing too text heavy.

We have access to a number of spaces (see space info sheet below): a café, an atrium, some small spaces, some stairwells and a big black box.

Durational, intervention, and ‘come and go’ work seems to work the best - we’re not really looking for sit-down theatre shows.

This isn’t a really formal selection process with lots of criteria, but work does need to be legal and you must have the right to perform it!
