FOR ALL PROFESSIONAL ARTISTS WORKING IN THE FIELDS OF MUSIC, LITERATURE, ARCHITECTURE, SOUND AND VISUAL ARTS, FILM AND PERFORMING ARTS!
1 – 28 FEBRUARY 2019
From 1 to 28 February we will be accepting applications for the second round of TRAVERS, which will take place at Dokk1 in Aarhus, Denmark from 6 to 11 May 2019.
I think Travers offers a unique opportunity for getting an insight, or “traversing” into other creative fields. This is something which I believe is fruitful for personal development as well as potential future collaboration. – Freja Kir, participating artist in camp 1
TRAVERS is a cross-artistic journey that aims to pose questions and search for answers. TRAVERS will provide the space to challenge habits, mind-sets and attitudes. It will seek out new processes and artistic languages, and cultivate the art of encounter. TRAVERS aims to create a strong society of artists, who will develop and expand the interdisciplinary field during exceptional opportunities for working across formats and territories.
TRAVERS will host three collaborative camps in November 2018, May 2019 and June 2020. These residencies will offer an opportunity to found new, egalitarian workspaces, where artists can work and wonder together in a shared artistic laboratory.
The TRAVERS camps are open to all artists and scholars. The journey is free and offers various ways of joining.
Magrét Bjarnadóttir is a multidisciplinary artist and choreographer based in Reykjavik. She started her dance training at six years old and graduated in 2006 with a BA in choreography from ArtEZ in Arnhem, Holland. Magrét’s approach to dance is like that of a visual art or writer and she is continuously intrigued by the concept of how fragile people are and the humour in our existence. Indeed, her interest in human nature is seen in her book ‘The word on the street’ which is a collection of sentences and phrases that she overheard from passersby in Iceland and collected in the period May 5th 2009 – December 18th 2013. As well as working on her solo projects Magrét choreographed Björk’s Utopia and worked with singer in her festival tour in last summer in 2018.
