Open Source is here

In 2012 Legs On The Wall furthers its investigation into how developments in technology impact the physical experience of live performance with Open Source. Are we flattening our senses into a world of screens, or do innovations in science offer something richer to visceral art? Open Source is a call for investigations and experiments in this area, with the aim to share discoveries in a wider community.

Open Source is where the physical and the technological make sweet, poetic art together Legs On The Wall offers space at its Lilyfield premises, an audience and a brains trust to performers, makers and thinkers,
experimenting at the crossroads of flesh and tech. We are seeking projects that feature the human body in association with any combination of sound, image, space, or interactive device in the context of live performance.

Open Source is a space for you to turn a tricky concept into real time artistry

In 2012 two successful projects will each be given a four-week creative development at Legs On The Wall’s rehearsal spaces in Lilyfield, including a week in the Red Box. Projects will be supported by Legs through in-kind space, equipment, documentation, dramaturgical support and a budget up to $4000. At the end of each creative development, a public showing will be hosted by Legs On The Wall, to give participants an opportunity to share their work with an audience.

Creative development 1: August 20th -September 16th 2012
Creative development 2: November 19th -December 16th 2012

Open Source is a catalyst for new ideas and collaborations. Projects that are in an earlier stage, or makers with a quick idea that need some human attention, are encouraged to apply for a slot in a Rapid Prototype session. A number of successful applications will be invited to present a performance, installation or ideas to the public in an informal evening, hosted by Legs On The Wall. Rapid prototype dates will be announced throughout the year

Open Source is what it says on the box

Legs On The Wall invites audiences to share in the play and experimentation behind the creation of innovative performance works. To this end, all participants in the Open Source program will have their work professionally dcumented and hosted non-exclusively on LegsOnline.

Applications close April 5th 2012
