BOW – Bodies of Work #2 is the second edition of a five-day intensive theoretical and performative training programme supported by the Department of Modern and Contemporary Culture – Ministry of Education and Culture of Cyprus and developed in collaboration with BJCEM – Biennial of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean and Dance House Leftkosia.

This second edition will take place in Nicosia, at the Dance House Lefkosia, from 6-10 December 2023 and will be curated by the curators and the fellows of the 4th edition of A Natural Oasis? (Alessandro Castiglioni, Simone Frangi with Joachim Aagaard Friis Marie-Nour Hechaime, Marie Hervé, Klodiana Millona, Stefano Mudu, Evagoras Vanezis) and Petros Konnaris, artistic director of Dance House Lefkosia.

For the second edition of BOW – Bodies of Work, the programme will renounce the hierarchical organisation of learning and training spaces between mentors and mentees to shift towards a horizontal situation of practice sharing and communal physical thinking, aiming to generate reflections around pivotal questions of our contemporary world.

This call to participate is open to artists with an interest in the cultural and artistic productions in the Mediterranean and a practice rooted in performance. In order to be eligible, candidates have to be under 35 (born after 1987) and come from or be based in the following territories:
