Callout for ANATOMY #4: silence / noise / silence

Friday 8th March 2013
Summerhall, Edinburgh


Following on from 2012’s extraordinary ANATOMY #1-3, we are delighted to announce ANATOMY #4: SILENCE/NOISE/SILENCE, the first in our ongoing 2013 programme of events.

A contemporary take on the music hall variety show, ANATOMY is a platform for performance artists of all disciplines; beyond scratch, it creates a stage for risk-taking performance and breath-taking theatrics in Edinburgh’s exciting new multi-arts venue, Summerhall, within a historic anatomy lecture theatre.

ANATOMY seeks proposals from theatre practitioners, artists, dancers, music makers and destroyers, puppeteers of junk and flesh, sculptors, story tellers, film makers, clowns, poets, photographers, mimes, installations, painters, weirdos and burlesques; the abstract, the comical, the terrifying, the sublime, the unfathomable, the beautiful, the life-changing and the oddly mundane.

We are looking for brave pieces, 5-20 minutes in length, that transcend the boundaries of genre: either by smashing, blending or outright ignoring them

There is, which may or may not be a feature from now on, a vague theme for ANATOMY #4. SILENCE/NOISE/SILENCE is the structure of life, dramatic narrative, love and sound; a medium, a sequence, a contrast, a message in itself; a mute with dynamite, the birth of the cosmos through sign language. This theme is loose and you are free to use it strictly, loosely, or not at all; adhering to the theme is not part of the selection criteria.

If ANATOMY is somewhere that you and your art belong, please download an Application Form and return, completed, as a single file by 3rd February 2013 to:

Selected acts will have access to rehearsal space before the show, a small expenses budget of £30 and technical support.
