Anatomy is a regular performance cabaret producer based in Edinburgh. We bring many different sorts of artforms and many different sorts of artists together for events to surprise, shock and delight.

We currently have live callouts for our adult and early years events in June-July, April 22nd, and details of our next live show, a 5-years Best Of called Finest Cuts, happening May 10-11. Details in the links and below.

Anatomy: Finest Cuts
a best of five years of genre-defying performance
Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh
10th-11th May

Full-throttle live art cabaret: an unpredictable cauldron of mischievous performance, featuring everything from tactical action to bleak bouffon, from noise art to fart jokes, from opera to pop and ballet to biscuits.

Featuring performance from: The Cloud of Unknowing , Cultured Mongrel Dance Theatre, Jordan & Skinner, Rosa Postlethwaite, Moreno Solinas, Lewis Sherlock, Xelís De Toro and Sara Zaltash. (Full details of all the acts here.)

Vaudeville Value

ANATOMY #18
Vaudeville Value Basics
Friday 29 June 2018, 8pm, Summerhall
Call for Proposals: Deadline April 22nd

Lights down, curtain up. There will be art. On a stage. It might be cut-price clown, sale-bin sound art, spoken word at a steal, five-finger discount film, or BOGOF bargain burlesque for the burnt budget. The hosts will be silly. There will be applause. No frills. Who can afford frills? Just vaudeville, basics. This is Everyday Essentials Value Anatomy Basics Range, for when the purse is empty and the heart is full.

Funded by Creative Scotland, ANATOMY is a quarterly live art cabaret based in Edinburgh’s Summerhall and occasionally venturing elsewhere. We seek proposals from fearless artists to tell cockamamie half-baked dogtales. Or not. We seek iconoclasts, film-warpers, grotesques, thumpers of technology, immersive weepers, levitating playwrights, jugglers of industrial salvage, puppet dancers and throat gymnasts.

ANATOMY is especially welcoming of artists who face marginalisation, including D/deaf and/or disabled people, LGBTI+ people, women, people of colour, working class people, and people from any related background or identity. We have a full accessibility policy to support this work. If you feel you are often excluded from performance opportunities, we would like to include you and hear how we can do that better. We have a budget to help meet individual access needs.

We are looking for fearless proposals, 5-30 minutes in length, of things that can be presented in a room with an audience, regardless of trend, style, medium or currency. For our summer show, we are seeking stories of austerity and simplicity. (But if you have a better idea then ignore ours: strict thematic adherence is not essential.)
Selected acts will receive:
– A £100 fee per performer for the performance, plus travel expenses
– Accommodation if needed with Anatomy family and friends
– Rehearsal space in Summerhall as required
– Full technical support for the show
– Photo and film documentation of the performance

We are currently unable to host aerial performances. One day we will be able to fly.

For more on what we’ve done, see our past events.

To apply, please download an application form and a voluntary  diversity monitoring form and return, completed, to hello@anatomyarts.co.uk by 11:59pm of April 22nd 2018. We welcome proposals in alternative formats if this is better for you; please contact us for details.

ANATOMINIS #5
Performance art for the 0-5s
Sunday 1 July 2018, 11am
Call for Proposals: Deadline April 22nd

Do you want to make truly boundary-smashing art? Then try making performance art for toddlers! All the rules go out the window when you’re aiming to make creative, engaging, sensory-stimulating work for an extraordinary audience with no preconceptions. We’re seeking artists from any performance discipline – theatre, clown, live art, dance, or anything else you can think of – who are interested in making work for our next early years show, both those with experience in the field and those who want to explore it.

To apply, you just need an idea. It can be something you’ve performed before, something you’ve already developed for the early years audience, or the seed of idea that you want to make happen. If you don’t have experience working with early years, that’s OK: our team are available for consultation to help you develop the piece.

ANATOMY is especially welcoming of artists who face marginalisation, including D/deaf and/or disabled people, LGBTI+ people, women, people of colour, working class people, and people from any related background or identity. We have a full accessibility policy to support this work. If you feel you are often excluded from performance opportunities, we would like to include you and hear how we can do that better.

– A £100 fee per performer for the performance, plus travel expenses
– Accommodation if needed with Anatomy family and friends
– Rehearsal space in Summerhall as required
– Full technical support for the show
– Photo and film documentation of the performance
