Tse Tse Fly Middle East - Guest Projects 2019




From March 5th - April 1st 2019 arts and activism platform Tse Tse Fly Middle East will be resident in Yinka Shonibare’s studios in East London as part of the artist's Guest Projects initiative. During that time we will deliver a project named Al-ḥarb al-ʼahliyyah as-sūriyyah that will mark the eighth anniversary of the civil war in Syria.

As part of the residency we will deliver a number of events, one of which is an evening of live experimental music performances accompanied by video projection entitled For Syria. With that in mind we are looking for three London-based experimental musicians / sound artists / multi-media artists to create an original thirty-minute performance that reacts to the civil war’s eighth anniversary. Each performance must include a live element and a video backdrop created especially for the event. Tse Tse Fly Middle East creates live events that highlight human rights and freedom of speech issues, and submissions from practitioners either with roots in the Middle East. Africa or the Indian subcontinent, or with strong socio-political themes to their work are encouraged.
