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 premiere on the 3 September 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.
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).
