What's New > Call for applications to: Artists from Québec - contemporary performance, dance, or theatre.
The Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is a research and production facility that supports the realization of complex artworks at any stage, from inception to completion.
The 220,000-square foot EMPAC building includes many firsts in the fields of acoustics, performing arts infrastructure, and architectural engineering. The integration of these features with audio, video, lighting, computer, and stage rigging networks makes EMPAC an ideal environment for human interaction with digital media. Located three and half hours south of Montréal in Troy, NY, EMPAC’s four exceptional venues enable artists to inquire, experiment, and develop the ever-changing relationship between our senses, technology, and the worlds we create around us.
EMPAC is dedicated to supporting time-based artworks that are diverse in content, method, technology, and audience experience. EMPAC is committed to the in-depth support of artists over extended periods of time to develop and realize complex projects. These projects utilize not only EMPAC’s technological infrastructure, but also access to EMPAC’s expert team of video, audio, stage and production engineers and technicians. Members of the EMPAC curatorial team also provide guidance throughout the production of artworks.
Applicants should have clear production/technical needs and an idea of how EMPAC as a venue and institution might support these needs. As EMPAC cannot provide original design/programming, each project should also involve appropriate design and technical collaborators.
Call for applications to:
Artists from Québec in the fields of contemporary performance, dance, or theatre.
Type of work:
EMPAC is looking for artists to realize a complex new work at any phase of development; a work that fosters deep artistic inquiry and expands the boundaries of both discipline and media. Preference will be given to applicants who articulate how EMPAC’s state-of-the-art facilities will enable not only technical, but also artistic and aesthetic innovation in performance production.
