ADAM > Artist Lab 2020 Open Call, ‘On Site: Rehearsing Concurrence and Its (Im)Possibilities’ (Taiwan)


Since 2017, Taipei Performing Arts Center’s key project ADAM (Asia Discovers Asia Meeting for Contemporary Performance) has worked with artists from across the Asia-Pacific region and beyond to build a network and platform of cross-culture cooperation and interdisciplinarity and continuously generated various artistic processes.

ADAM’s Artist Lab is a collective, artist-led and research-based residency programme allowing artists from across various disciplines and practices to think and work together in a creative process, inventing new ideas and future collaborations. At the end of the residency, participating artists are invited to give a public sharing of their findings at ADAM’s Annual Meeting bringing together international professionals of performing and visual arts and the general public.

Expanding the community-based and social research of ADAM’s Artist Lab in 2019, artists Madeleine Flynn (Australia), Han Xuemei (Singapore), Elia Nurvista (Indonesia) and Vuth Lyno (Cambodia) team up to co-curate the Artist Lab in 2020, entitled ‘On Site: Rehearsing Concurrence and Its (Im)Possibilities’. The Lab will take place 19 July - 17 August 2020.

Artists are encouraged to submit proposals to the Artist Lab rethinking site as a method to create, as a situation to rehearse, and as a concurrent embodiment to inhabit among others.

The residency is open to artists of all disciplines who have, or have had, practices related to the
theme of ADAM Artist Lab and an interest in collaborative research. There are no restrictions according to nationality, age or experience.

Residents will receive:

  • An economy-class travel ticket to and from Taipei.

  • Accommodation for the entire residency period (arrival on 19 July 2020; departure on 17 August 2020).

  • Artist fee including living allowance (approximately 22,000 NT$, or ~660 EUR).

Selected artists are asked to make a commitment to being present for the entire residency period, to give a public sharing at ADAM’s Annual Meeting for international arts professionals, and to attend the wrap-up meeting on 17 August.

Deadline: 9 March 2020
