Undertaking Transmodern: At The Threshold Of The Present Moment
The Transmodern Performance Festival cordially invites you to submit scores, ideas, images, essays, plays, poems, parlor games, recipes, instructions for a performance, etc. for a publication on the theme of TRANSmodern. This publication will work as a collection of musings on the state of being “trans” (as in transcendent, transgressive, translated, transmogrified, transgender, transient, etc.) in today’s cultural and political landscape. We are attempting to define and expand upon these concepts through variant media and disciplines. By approaching these fascinating and complex theories from an array of diverse fields and methods we will more adequately represent the multifarious nature of these theories. The Transmodern Performance Festival is constructing a publication which considers its topic not solely through authoritative textual statements but through the visual and the musical—the questioning and the suggesting.
The book will be a full color, perfect bound book with essays, drawings, paintings, recipes, scores etc. Please consider subverting and inverting these guidelines and expand upon the very premise.
-Two sentence synopsis
-200 word proposal (including format, length and content)
-3-5 examples of previous work (texts documents, internet links, or images [2.0 MB or less in size] )
Please e-mail submissions to TM_submissions@gmail.com by midnight April fools day (no joke).
