Announcing the call for international performances for Bibu and the ASSITEJ Artistic Gathering 2022!
Bibu and ASSITEJ Artistic Gathering 2022 acknowledges Indigenous peoples of the past, present and future worldwide as the custodians, inheritors and practitioners of unique cultures, worldviews and relations to land and environments. The Indigenous peoples have retained social, cultural, economic and political characteristics that are distinct from those of the dominant societies in which they live. Despite their cultural differences, Indigenous peoples from around the world share common problems related to the protection of their rights as distinct peoples.
In an effort to create a linking network between the world's indigenous cultures, Bibu and the AAG 2022 aims to enhance international visibility for Indigenous people.
For the international part, the Board of Directors will welcome innovative international applications that are visioned, produced and creatively led by Indigenous Performing Artists of all abilities.
We want to create an international platform thus drawing attention to the breadth of contemporary Indigenous performances — with works spanning from theatre, dance, storytelling/storysong and multidisciplinary performance art with a combination of both cultural and contemporary artistic expressions.
We invite applications of performances coming from or being produced by and with Indigenous Peoples of all abilities and being directed towards an audience of children, youth and families of all abilities
