The announcement is open to a wide range of performative actions, also including sound and new media arts, text-based performances, lecture performances, multimedia storytelling, choreographic practices, relational and workshop-based projects, and other projects questioning the idea of performativity beyond the body.
Artists and professionals from any geographic location and with no limits on age can enter the announcement, as individuals or in groups, with a single project. The open call only accepts unpublished or long-term projects that need to be developed and/or concluded, for which participation would represent an evolution of the project or it’s final chapter.

The performances produced will be presented at Centrale Fies in summer 2022, during the second edition of Live Works Summit 2022. On this occasion the projects will be discussed by a board of international professionals, working for festivals, institutions, residencies and production programs that sustain and produce research in performance.
During each evening a program of established guest artists will be presented alongside the projects of the 6 Live Works artists.
