TANZAHOi International Dance and Dance Film Festival > Call for Livestreamed Dance Works (Remote)

TANZAHOi International Dance and Dance Film Festival will bring outstanding international dance productions to Hamburg via livestream for the 2021 digital festival, Take Part in Another World.

In the midst of theatre restrictions and an unforeseeable end to a reduced-contact era in the arts, many artists and institutions have discovered streaming technology for themselves in order to not completely lose contact with their audience. After a successful live-streamed dance film festival in 2020, TANZAHOi wish to continue cultivating a digital platform for this year’s upcoming festival, streaming live performances from around the world in real time. They are interested in showing existing productions, but also in stimulating new productions conceived especially for TANZAHOi.

An interesting challenge of for-the-screen-adapted productions is the task of expanding the aesthetics of the audience’s limited view by, for example, directing attention to the camera work. Proposed works should be precisely choreographed, bringing a dynamic to the sequence that can only exist in the filmed-form, and should develop a unique audience experience compared to the live performance. The use of several cameras and film-angles should be considered. TANZAHOi would like to make a contribution to the further development of ‘livestream aesthetics’, as they see multimedia and hybrid productions as a sustainable future opportunity for the arts.

TANZAHOi will offer 4000 € to the selected productions to achieve the livestream of their work. This grant only supports the implementation of the visual concept for the livestream to Hamburg in the period from 3-5 September 2021. It does not cover the payment of dancers, choreographers or the venue. Grant amount is excluding exchange fees.

Deadline: 31 March 2021
