121212 UpStage Festival of Cyberformance – cyberspace

Proposals are warmly invited for new cyberformance work (live online performance) to be presented at the 121212 UpStage Festival of Cyberformance, to take place online on 12 December 2012.
We invite proposals for live work that is situated online, in any platform that is publicly accessible (for example UpStage, WaterWheel’s Tap, SelfWorld, Second Life, Visitors Studio and other platforms). Performances should be no longer than 20 minutes, and can address any theme or topic.
We are NOT interested in pre-recorded work, or work that only uses the internet as a broadcast mechanism. Your proposal should clearly (but briefly) outline how the work functions as a networked performance.
Proposals must be emailed to zn.gro.egatspu@ofni by 12 April 2012.
Please note that:
•    we are unable to provide any financial support (we do not have any budget for the festival at this stage, everyone is a volunteer) but we can provide formal letters of invitation to assist in your own funding applications;
•    we can only provide technical support for performances in UpStage – if you are using a different platform then you must have your own technical support and ensure that the platform is stable for the audience;
•    we can only provide training and mentoring for performances in UpStage, but a supportive artistic community is encouraged between the festival artists which may provide informal collaboration and support beyond the UpStage platform.
