2nd Video Contest Squeeze It, dedicated to Franco Jesurun is an international competition addressed to the European area.
Young artists under the age of 30 are invited to create original projects, which are characterized by the dynamic interaction between the contemporary creativity of theater, the languages of the visual arts and of the new media.
The initiative is aimed also at developing moments of exchange and sharing between young artists and experts from the three fields of competence. For this purpose a series of workshops will be held.
Special attention will be given to projects submitted by groups formed by members from different areas of training and interest.
The contestants are asked to conceive an original and unpublished theatrical action, low budget and small format, organically connected to the languages and issues of contemporary visual arts. The candidate action has to maintain as its founding elements the stage environment and performing talent, include dramaturgy and give specific attention to the visual potential of recent information and communication technologies.
The contestants should submit projects which have the ability to be sustainable, shareable and adaptable and, in keeping with the logic of the contest, the applying theatrical action must be able to fit in an ideal 4mx4mx4m size box and should last no longer than 16 minutes.
Both the submitted theatrical action and the video clip of it must be unpublished.
