Join us for the Combustible Mixer! Meet choreographers or creative technologists that you can collaborate with on a proposal for the Combustible Residency. We will provide the drinks, snacks, and collaborator 'dating cards'. You will be tasked with collecting three contacts during the mixer with whom you can follow up with later to discuss the possibilities of creating together.
Combustible is a lab for intersecting art practices from dance and technology. Artists are given real, raw Space and Time, to collaborate on the creation of innovative live performance projects with use state-of-the-art lighting and sound tools. Throughout a residency period artists share their research through designed public experiences and events. Combustible carves a place to be deeply inquisitive and experiment on the edge of what is known.
If chosen for a residency, CounterPulse will work with you to design and plan the time between you and your collaborator to create a performance piece. We’ll host your rehearsals, produce and promote your show, give you and your collaborator an artist fee, and offer you a community of support. Unique to this residency program, you will have six months to develop a 30 minute work in collaboration.
Through Combustible, CounterPulse hopes to stimulate interdisciplinary collaborations in San Francisco, where new technologies and experimental dance/theater are born daily.
