CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
DanceDigital is pleased to announce a new artist development scheme that will be run in partnership with the University of Bedfordshire.
DanceDigital is currently looking to work with a cohort of artists in the development of a festival that will be presented in partnership with the University of Bedfordshire in April 2014. DanceDigital will recruit new Associate Artists and new Catalyst Artists, who will be given opportunity to develop new work through a support scheme that includes mentoring by DanceDigital Artistic Fellows, space in kind, a cash contribution and presentation in an international festival event, which marks culmination of the scheme.
Digital technologies have created new, and now accepted, modes of production and have repositioned dance performance as a multi-sited, digitally mediated art form. Investigation of our current theme, Mobilities offers opportunity to consider how digital technologies transform experiences of the mobile in new choreographies that may be located on stage, online or on the ground. We are interested in the distinct performance vocabularies and innovative modes of participation that are enabled by digitally embedded choreographic processes. We are also interested in the mobility of collaborations across disciplines that bring together the expertise, vision and innovation of artists, technologists, scientists and users in the creation of new art works.
If you are interested in developing work that moves audiences in new ways and creates touching human experiences by harnessing choreographic practice and digital innovation, then we would like to hear from you. We are particularly interested in proposals that address the interactivity of performers/audience and technology, and from those who are interested in developing new high quality performance work through interactive methods.
