OPEN CALL for videos: DÉRAPAGE 11
DÉRAPAGE is a unique event of audiovisual exploration that annually invites people from all disciplines to create a non-narrative sonorized audiovisual short piece of less than three minutes.
Your videos can be in realtime, in animation, working with textures; shot in red, blue or green; in black and white or in color; hysterical or contemplative; name it! they'll find their place in Dérapage. So, now is time to submit your non narrative artworks for the grand screening evening of Dérapage 11.
Dérapage 11; a new category in collaboration with Cirque du soleil
Le «Moment d'apesanteur» (moment of weightlessness)
To its usual categories − best editing, best sound, best animation, best first video and Grand Prize − Dérapage adds, in collaboration with Centre de recherche et d'innovation en performance (CRIP) of Cirque du soleil, the new category « Moment d'apesanteur » (moment of weightlessness) in acrobatic performance. From trampoline to aerial frame, from hand to hand to teeterboard and russian bars, acrobatic artists' numbers ''highlight human physical performance in all its splendor and fragility'' (taken from Cirque du Soleil website).
Dérapage initiates a dialogue between these two practices and asks artists to explore this weightlessness moment, this instant when the acrobat in suspended in the air, between elevation and fall, fixed in time and space, in an acrobatical slow-motion, and to bring to the viewers the dreamscape, the interior environment of the performer in that specific position.
This challenge asks the videoartists to elongate this weightlessness moment in order to produce a piece, using original images, archives sequences and/or footage from rehearsals and shows, playing with time and space, that satisfies intelligence and sensitivity to provoque either artistic, dramatic or oniric emotions.
· To be eligible, you have to accept that, when submitting your video, you're also adding it to a bank of ideas that is used to inspire Cirque du soleil creators.
