Frist: Donnerstag, 28. Februar 2019

The Hague, The Netherlands
Deadline for entry: 28 February 2019

Under the theme “[voluntary] EXILE and HOSPITALITY”, a total artistic immersive experience, the festival team is looking for artists, performers and other creators which will propose existing works, adapted version, or work in progress.

The biennale HUBS IMMERSIVE festival is multidisciplinary event that offers an immersive experience of modern dance performances, cross-disciplinary theater, interactive installations and workshops.
The festival aim to push the boundaries of audience participation and set up a frame where each visitor feels challenged at his own level, yet accepted in his potential entrenchments.
The team is looking for works with multiple level approaches that enable and encourage the visitor to feel sufficiently at ease to step from a “classic” spectatorship to a co-author of the art work or/or even becoming the art work itself” “During his/her experience, the visitor shall self- consciously decide on the ‘role’ he/she wants to play in this immersive context and how actively he/she wants to interact with an installation, with the performers and/or with other visitors.”

General requirements
-Artists living in Europe or work in city of The Hague (or broader in the Netherlands), or had a relation to the city in the past, (ex: studies, expositions, performances, supports, artistic collaborations…)
-Be active in the program “audience and artist creative hubs exchange”, a three-fold open studio.
-Besides artistic quality and production achievability, each artist is required to play an active part to promote the festival within it’s own network, (enhancing the visibility of the second edition of the festival.)

What we are looking for
-Short performances that can be experienced for the audience in a time frame between 10 and 20 min
-Works that invite the audience to engage into the work, the (artistic) game, the within the proposed universe and/or with the artists itself.
