Digital Leap: Taiteilijahaku on avoinna taas! – Call for artists open again! ‼️ DEADLINE 13.6.


Are you searching for ways to create a connection with your audience digitally or looking for the right tools for sharing your artistic work with the world through digital means? We are now calling for circus and dance artists who are curious about digitalization to take part in the third and fourth Digital Leap learning modules.

Digital Leap is an international project that offers contemporary circus and dance artists learning opportunities for deepening their understanding of different digital tools and virtual platforms. Read more about the project and all four learning modules HERE.

The Digital Leap learning modules are 5-day events consisting of theory about and hands-on training in digital platforms from different perspectives. The modules offer you an opportunity to develop different skills in digitalization. Topics range from distributing performances by using digital tools, connecting with audiences in digital and virtual environments, and learning how to employ these tools in a way that best suits your own artistic practice. Experts of different disciplines will act as teachers, mentors and facilitators.

Module 3 – Expanding your practice at your computer desktop – Distribution strategies on the Internet 3.0.

4. – 8.10.2022 – Terrassa / Manresa, Catalunya, Spain – Hosted by Institut Ramon Llull

There are no magic tricks when talking about the distribution of dance and circus performances digitally, but there are hidden ways still to be discovered.

In this module we invite you to reflect on the infinite possibilities that the internet has to offer in the realm of distribution. A selection of experts will provoke you to think outside the box, reach new targets and get new communities online to broaden your engagement.

We will also offer you a closer look at the complexities of international taxation and some platforms that can ease your work. Legal experts will guide the group through the development of digital rights and explore how it could support the dance and circus scene.

As part of this module you will also be invited to see curated performances at Teatro Principal of Terrasa and at Fira Mediterranea, an international dance festival in Manresa.

Module 4 – Reaching and engaging with audiences through digital means

Beginning of February 2023, dates to be confirmed – Aix-en-Provence / Marseille, France – Hosted by ARTCENA

This module focuses on the key topic of audience engagement and development work, while exploring cutting-edge digital formats. Circus and dance workers (artists and producers alike) will discover how to e-meet and engage with their audience, how to better target them, and how to adapt to emerging participative and immersive practices by looking at examples from other artistic fields. The module, which will take place in the frame of BIAC (Biennale internationale des arts du cirque), will also address the topic of audiences from an ethical perspective, by touching upon various aspects of diversity and inclusion.
