Event History

This will be our 5th Global Be-coming Tree event via Zoom. Our first 4 collective Live Art events included 71 artists from 32 countries and 6 continents.

What Makes this event different?

Tickets include rainforest tree donations, making this entanglement of barefoot digital technology and nature a collective eco-art action to support reforestation and solidarity.

Be-coming tree is seeking artists to participate in a collective Be-coming Tree performance, live streamed via Zoom. This is a live event creating a network of artists simultaneously engaging with their local trees and woodlands across the globe (in accordance with any local pandemic restrictions). We seek durational work which must last fully for one hour and may involve any activity: action, stillness, dance, ritual or whatever the artist feels will express the ethos of Be-coming Tree. The initiative grows kinship with more- than-human forms of life by a heartfelt, collective and connective action of ecoentanglement with nature.
We seek work that takes place safely outside, in nature. In your proposal we expect you to consider other challenges of outdoor durational work such as weather, wifi access, and sufficiently charged streaming devices. Please be as light-hearted as you like, feel free to have some fun!
We cannot accept work that involves the use of individual sound as Be-coming Tree emphasises equality of presence on the screen. If your initial idea includes sound or speech please re-work before submitting.
We require all participants to attend an obligatory tech rehearsal to deal with any issues with live streaming before the event. When filming outside and away from wi-fi access it is usually good practice to live stream using a smartphone with a good cellular network availability. So take this into account.
After the event an edited video recording of the performance will be made available to artists. It will be recorded in ‘gallery view’ so that artists in groups of 12 are visible on the screen at the same time. Please note any individual documentation of your work is your responsibility, so plan ahead.
Tech rehearsal: Sat July 24th 2021 for one hour. Exact time to be confirmed.
Live Performance: Sat July 31st 2021 between 10:45 - 15.30 CEST. Exact time to be confirmed.
