Raw Matters is a non-profit organization that functions as a platform for curious artists. Raw Matters pays a small fee of 160 EUR towards expenses. Deadline to apply is 20th of January for the evenings 18th of March (mandatory meeting 15.03. 17:00) and 15th of April (mandatory meeting 12.04. 17:00).

Who can apply?
Artists looking to share their research or experiments in the field of dance and performance.

What can be submitted?
Experiments in live-performance or film, no longer than 20 minutes, requiring very little technical support. Finished works will not be considered.

What else should be considered?
On Friday before each Raw Matters evening we hold a meeting at Arbeitsplatz Wien (Siegfriedgasse 23, 1210 Wien) with all artists to clarify details. At this meeting all artists show what they have been working on, after which we plan the running order of the performance evening and the rehearsals. This meeting is mandatory for all Viennese based artists and is a requirement for participation at Raw Matters.

Send a maximum of 2 A4 pages (word or pdf), including a short description of your idea, approximate length and desired date as well as a short CV of all participating artists. Please, do not forget to include a telephone number of the contact person.
