PEEP/ANATOMY: Duration Performance at the Edinburgh Fringe
Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2013, 7-9pm
Assembly at George Square Gardens

ANATOMY is curating a season of experimental performances inside PEEP, in George Square Gardens as part of Assembly’s Fringe programme.

PEEP is a brave new space programming theatre, dance, cabaret, sound installation and live art. The audience are seated in private booths peeping on the unfolding show – but the artists can’t see them. It’s a peepshow, but definitely “not for the raincoat brigade” (The Guardian).

We are looking for exiting proposals of durational performances that capitalise on the venue’s unique spacing. Voyeurism, sex, gender, the body – we would actively encourage practitioners of all live art and performance to engage with the space and theme. Full details of venue and finances available on our website.

If PEEP/ANATOMY is a space in which you and your art belong, please download an Application Form from and return, completed, by 23rd June 2013 to:



all for books – Places that don’t exist
There are spaces being left behind. There are things in front of us but being invisible. There are places existing but do not exist. The project Places that don’t exist questions the definition of existence and visibility in our society.

In the project, I will curate a library in the exhibition space, including books about places don’t exist, which could be interpreted in various directions: such as airports, detention rooms, international waters – places that don¡¦t belong to any nation, or countries without recognition, such as Taiwan, Kosovo, Somaliland, Palestine, or spaces physically existing in a gray zone, such as passage, corner, hallways.

If you are an artist, who has printed books related to the topic, or you have books related to the theme, or you know books about the subject, willing to participate, please contact me, I would love to rent the books either from you or from other sources available.

Call Out for Submission – Dance & Disobedience
9th – 19th October 2013

The streets are a forum for expression by skaters, protesters, artists and musicians across the world. Dance & Disobedience brings together internationally disparate groups to create a shared narrative and find common ground. Alongside a main event of performance, film and music on the 12th October, we are hosting a small gallery show that will bring the vibrancy and energy of the streets into the Rich Mix venue.

This will not be a sterile gallery, it will reflect a jostling market; with graffiti images, photography, painting, stencils and even projections. The Cafe Gallery has limited room but we aim to fit as much as possible, creating a story with many voices.

We are looking for work that comes from or is inspired by street culture, urban playfulness, international solidarity and protest against oppression, and most importantly, the unifying power of music.



Belarus Free Theatre seeking volunteers
Belarus is the last country in Europe that has not yet abandoned the death penalty. Bodies of those executed are not returned to families. Cases of political kidnapping and murder are not investigated, and today there are 14 political prisoners in Belarusian jails, and dozens who are not rehabilitated.

Belarus Free Theatre and Free Belarus Now are seeking volunteers for a peaceful protest against the human rights violations in Belarus, shedding light on the hundreds of people who have “disappeared” or been executed.

We call for volunteers to take part in a static peaceful protest in London for 1 hour at 8am on 6th June 2013 in three iconic central London locations.

Contact Maddy at for more information and to get involved.

We can offer volunteers a free ticket to Trash Cuisine , Belarus Free Theatre’s latest show at the Young Vic between 30 May and 15 June.
