ANATOMY #21 : SLANDER
Call for Proposals
***Deadline Extended! Weds 17th July ***
Show Fri 13th September
Radio static. The feedback of megaphones. The street preacher dusts off their A-board. The opposition approaches the podium. Proclamations echo across the land! Richard and Judy are Russian sleeper agents, their dressing rooms stocked concealed, but readily accessible, novichock. Jamie Oliver licks the sludge out of broken dishwashers when no-one is watching. The deep-fake of Mark Zukerberg has lifted himself out of the doctored videos and is rampaging downtown. Spread the word. Drop the mic.
ANATOMY #21 will blacken all names and vilify your heroes. We need guttersnipes, ragamuffins, tatterdemalions and scallywags to slosh about in the scandal and slurs. We are looking for fearless proposals, 5-30 minutes in length, of art that can be presented in a room with an audience, regardless of trend, style, medium or truth value.
A quarterly live art cabaret based in Edinburgh’s Summerhall and occasionally venturing elsewhere, ANATOMY is especially welcoming of artists who face marginalisation, including D/deaf and/or disabled people, LGBTI+ people, women, people of colour, working class people, and people from any related background or identity. We have a full accessibility policy to support this work. If you feel you are often excluded from performance opportunities, we would like to include you and hear how we can do that better. We have a budget to help meet individual access needs.
Selected acts will receive:
– A £100 fee per performer, plus travel expenses
– Accommodation if needed with Anatomy family and friends
– Rehearsal space in Summerhall as required
– Full technical support for the show
– Photo and film documentation of the performance
We are currently unable to host aerial performances. One day we will be able to fly.
