ORGANIZATION HISTORY:
Established in 2006, Sound Theatre Company is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to staging three fully produced projects per season, complemented by experimental and new works programming. Around 2015, our focus shifted toward social justice, aligning with similar initiatives by the City of Seattle. Despite perceptions of being more resourced, Sound Theatre primarily operated as a volunteer-run organization until initiating professionalization in 2019. Working towards equitable compensation, we now maintain a paid, ten-person permanent staff as of January 2021 and a current organizational operating budget of $600,000+. As we chart a course for growth into a deeply intersectional and accessible theatre producer, we proudly center racial justice, disability justice, and intersectionality in our work. Guided by our accessibility coordinator, we embrace challenges to grow authentically, excited about the possibilities of a more just and accessible tomorrow.

Description

The 14th edition of CONTEMPORARY VENICE analyzes the relationship between body and space, and the hybridization between identities and cultural/physical/social/urban settings in contemporary times, through two main sections: MIXING IDENTITIES and FUTURE LANDSCAPES.

MIXING IDENTITIES analyzes the hidden parts of our identities, through an immersive experience inside the fascinating universe of the complex labyrinths of our consciousness. The human body is a changing system that connects us with other bodies and spaces to perceive the surrounding reality; a strong communication system with its language and infinite ways of expression.

FUTURE LANDSCAPES are abstract, infinite and conceptual, associated with a sense of freedom and infinite extension. Primarily experienced with the mind, spaces redefine their limits and borders, transforming surfaces into an open flow of pure ideas. This section focuses on the concept of the borders and the structures between body, mind and soul, the human identity and the city, the space and the ground.

How to Apply

Artists, photographers, video makers, and performers are invited to submit their works. To take part in the selection, send your works’ submissions with a CV/biography, some still images (for video art), links to videos/films/performances and pictures via e-mail to info@itsliquid.com
