"Research into the Unknown" is a residency program where artists/creators and the audience can research what improvisation means in the field of contemporary arts. The program offers an intensive researching opportunity for artists/creators and focusing on the creative process, on the research itself rather then creating a performance.
This program aims to encourage artists/creators who are researching improvisation as an artistic tool in the field of contemporary dance and other art forms. Each semester, one Hungarian and one foreign artist/creator participate in the residency program. They choose a partner/artist from another art-form, with whom they venture into the Unknown with the tool of improvisation.
The program is made up of three consecutive steps, during which the research period is followed by a presentation where the audience plays an important role by giving feedback and dialogue with the artists / creators:
- The first presentation offers a possibility to present a rough work-out of the artistic concept in a studio, with the integration of the audience as an active part of the performance.
- The second step is a work-in-progress show in a (theatre) studio with minimal lights and technical help, with audience feedback-round at the end.
- The closing evening of the residency program at the end of the third step is a theatre performance where participating pairs present the results of their research work.
• are experienced and curious to research into the subject of improvisation in dance
• wish to collaborate with Hungarian colleagues from a different art field
