TanzLabor Ulm is a platform that facilitates and promotes artistic creation in the field of dance. TanzLabor offers participants creative opportunities in four areas to develop innovative artistic content, while facilitating deeper audience connections to dance.
Open Call „Tanz mit dem Tiger“
TanzLabor - ROXY Ulm and Artistic Director Pablo Sansalvador are looking to commission five innovative "Digital Dance Makers" to create five varied short choreographic works of 5-8 minutes. The movement of each of the "Digital Dance Makers" will be recorded through Motion Capture technology. This content will then be transformed into Augmented Reality, allowing each of the "Digital Dance Makers" to be visible and present within a larger dance installation performance called "Tanz mit dem Tiger" under the Artistic Direction of Pablo Sansalvador. "Tanz mit dem Tiger" will be premiered on the 03.09.2021. Each dance maker will be given the option to choose from one of three pieces of music to create a choreography. The choreographic concept for each of the five selected "Digital Dance Makers" may reflect on their experiences of lockdown and of how they have discovered new opportunities and challenges of being a dance maker during a pandemic. It is important that the "Digital Dance Makers" understand that the work they create will be incorporated as one of several parts that are all equally important in producing the dance installation experience "Tanz mit dem Tiger".
We are looking for dance makers that want to challenge themselves artistically, want to learn and discover how dance can embrace the digital revolution. We are looking for open minded dance makers that enjoy working in a team, are curious and enjoy connecting and being challenged. We encourage dance makers from a wide range of backgrounds to apply. We are looking to engage all forms and styles of dancer makers from Urban, Classical, Contemporary, Folk and Break Dance. Creation and recording in July and August 2021.
The "Digital Dance Makers" will receive:
- A fee of 750,- €
- Up to 150,-€ towards the travel expenses
- Two days studio time and a recording day
- Personal documentation through photography and film
- Inclusion in the marketing and press related work of the Tanzlabor (ROXY Ulm)
