In those moments, if we are equipped with a modicum of introspection, we are confronted with the Cosmos and, more importantly, our utter insignificance in the face of it. Questions of why are we here? and what does it all mean? become nonsense: the terrifying magnitude and endless power of the Cosmos simply overwhelm and devour.

118 271 The curatorial themes for the 2017 National Arts Festival, which will run from Thursday 29 June to Sunday 9 July, will focus on the relationship between Art and Disruption: art as a disruptor of mainstream ways of thinking, and art in response to disruptions to the status quo. We invite works in all genres that: are inspired by a reaction to borders of any and all kinds; engage with the #mustfall and #mustrise movements; wrestle with the past to understand the present We are particularly interested in proposals for work that are likely to challenge and spark lively discussion and reflection. In short, we are looking for compelling, innovative and high-quality performances, exhibitions and cross-disciplinary works that serve as catalysts for debate and transformation. Preference will be given to proposals that: - incorporate cross-disciplinary collaborations and / or explore new forms of making art and / or boldly and innovatively blur the lines between genres - critically reflect on and / or re-imagine the past so as to envision the future by challenging / disrupting / collapsing language and cultural boundaries that have divided people historically; and that advance intercultural collaborations - explore the African continent in terms of collaborations / themes / texts; and advance inter-continental collaboration through cross-border engagement and / or a broad engagement with foreign national creatives resident and working in South Africa - respond to human migration by creating compelling performances / exhibitions about the personal and / or political challenges of migration by engaging with these issues through the narratives / lived lives / experiences of people affected by e.g. xenophobia, questions of home, crises of identity, displacement, struggle for restitution, etc. We, of course, also welcome proposals that are not bound to these themes. Our intention is to present a diverse artistic programme that continues to position the National Arts Festival as a prominent platform for innovation, experimentation, reflection, entertainment, and celebration. CALL FOR PROPOSALS THE FESTIVAL CELEBRATES ITS COMMITMENT TO FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION AS ENSHRINED IN THE SOUTH AFRICAN CONSTITUTION... The Festival presents a limited number of revivals or works that have been previously staged in South Africa. Strong motivation for why such work should be revived or presented at the Festival needs to be submitted in proposals. In the case of classics, preference is given to fresh takes of these works. Artists are encouraged to think beyond the conventions of formal theatre spaces and to explore site-specific interventions that will engage with and / or challenge the historical, social, and / or cultural boundaries of Grahamstown. The Festival s audiences are as diverse as its artists. The Festival embraces the spirit that a successful national cultural event has a responsibility to serve its audiences and artists in equal measure and to ensure that each event contributes to growing a more progressive, tolerant, and cohesive society. Proposals for any production that has been presented at the National Arts Festival (including the Fringe) during the past five years will not be considered. Artists / companies and presenting managements can download guidelines for submitting proposal from the Festival s website: Proposals must reach the Festival Office no later than Friday 12 August All proposals must be submitted as per the proposal brief that will be available on the website. Enquiries should be ed to The Festival celebrates its commitment to freedom of expression as enshrined in the South African constitution; and thus recognises that the arts can be engaged as an advocate for both social cohesion and social provocation. The Festival s Main Programme is a solid platform for exciting new work presented by established, mid-career and emerging South African artists; as well as a forum for successful international productions to premiere on the continent or in South Africa. Winners of the Standard Bank Ovation Awards will receive written invitations to submit proposals for the 2017 Arena programme. Fringe applications will be available in November 2016 and registration will close on Friday 14 January Forms and information booklets will be available on-line at Enquiries should be addressed to the Fringe Manager, Zikhona Monaheng, on or by
