DARC seeking performance practitioners for TRANSFORMANCE project
We are Documentation Action Research Collective (DARC).
We are artists interested in exploring documentation and shaking its notion.
We believe that the documentation of artists’ work is not just an act of preservation but a creative act in itself. We consider our work a process of collaboration, a dialogue, a responsibility and an art form of its own.
For this project, we decided to replace the word documentation with Transformance.
For us, Transformance is a process of exchange, translation and creation.

We are inviting performance artists (or any practitioner who considers their work a live performance) to submit a proposal for a NEW performance (that hasn’t been presented in front of a public audience before) to be presented and transformed into creative documentation by DARC members.

The successful applicant will be invited to an encounter with DARC members. At least three members of DARC will be present during this encounter and will create the document(s) of your performance. The nature of how the documentation takes place will be customized to the nature of the performance.

We will offer:

• A studio space for your performance, if required
• A rich creative exchange with a collective of multi-disciplined artists
• Feedback (if requested) from a specialist audience to your new performance
• A multi-faceted document in response to the performance
• A vehicle of diffusion and distribution of the work created through the DARC.media website.
• An opportunity to test new ideas and experiment new approaches to documentation.
