The four-year Ventilator author cycle will have four stages of
development. Each year, we will give the opportunity for a selected author, duo
or group to develop their creative potential to crossover and connect the
musical and performing arts. Ventilator introduces new creative approaches to
the expression of music-dance-performance. It will highlight innovations in
understanding artistic action, the different relationships between structured form
and improvisation, the thoughtful relationships with the space and audience,
new methods of performance production.
The title suggests ventilation, airing, fluid content, theme,
combinations, forms, techniques, mode of presence, modules, authors,
performers, gestures and sonority. This enables exceptional creativity,
originality, responsiveness and openness in creation. It will scaffold untested
combinations of authors, performers, artistic styles and techniques.
