Call for collaborators: Ecosex wedding of Annie Sprinkle and Beth Stephens

The call for proposals to participate in Annie Sprinkle and Beth Stephens‘s next performance will remain open until the 25th of June.

Ecosex Barcelona, with Hangar and theCCCB, as collaborators, invite you to join the Ecosex Wedding to the Rocks which will take place on the 29th of June in the Pati de les Dones of the CCCB, between 19:00 and 21:00. Admission is free. Those attending, as well as collaborating artists, are asked to focus on the wedding’s theme, which is "rocks" (i.e.: you could use stones or minerals), and on the colour of the wedding, which is silvery grey.

There are various ways of collaborating and taking part in the ecowedding, choose the one you like best and send us your proposal.

You don’t have to have any particular skills; you just need to want to have fun making art and activism. You will find the application form at the bottom of this page, download it, fill it in, and send it back to. You will then receive more detailed information about the type of collaboration you wish to make.

Artists’ Collaborations

The event is made up of a ceremony, where vows will be read out loud, and Annie Sprinkle and Beth Stephens will eco-marry with certain elements of nature, body parts, chakhras, and concepts. After this, different artists will begin to offer their "gifts".

These gifts must be ephemeral artworks, not material ones. Some interesting formats could be: poetry, performance, dance, music, a manifesto, etc. The duration of each piece must be no longer than 10 minutes.

15 interventions will be selected, and these may be done by individuals, or by collectives.

If your proposal is selected, it will appear on the programme of the public event (in its printed and online versions), and will be part of the 7 year long project Love Art Lab, which ends this year.

Furthermore, if you were to come from outside of Barcelona, or your intervention results in some expenses, there will be a party on the 7th of July to cover the costs of the participants. The money collected will be shared according to each person’s expenses.

The deadline for the presentation of proposals is the 15th of June 2011.

Collaborate as an assistant

We will most probably need a hand to create this great event. If you don’t feel like making a public intervention, but would like to collaborate in the event, sign up to the support group. This group takes care of reception, decoration, make-up, costumes, etc.

The deadline for this is the 25th of June.

Collaborate by Documenting.

We need photographers and video makers to document the event. If you are interested in filming or taking pictures of the ecowedding, sign up on the documentation group, we can assure you that the resulting materials will be spectacular. After the event, we will ask you to share your photos/videos with us.

We will cover the costs of miniDV tapes, film, etc., and your selected work will form part of the Love Art Lab. Your work must be licensed under Creative Commons.

The deadline for this is the 25th of June.

Collaborate with Food or Drink, Energy, by Attending…

If you like, you can simply come along with something that you’ve cooked or with drinks and share them with everyone. There will be a table where you may leave your food "offering". Fresh, thirst-quenching offerings will be greatly appreciated.       

The audience will also have a collaborative role, as we will ask you to dress up or wear make-up that follows the wedding’s theme, which, in this case is: grey or silver colours, rocks, minerals, solids.

Come wearing your best clothes and get ready to spend an unforgettable evening.
