Oulu Dance Hack 2022 – Open call! DL 30 November


Oulu Dance Hack (ODH) is a unique opportunity to meet like-minded artists and technology specialists who are interested in creative risk-taking and collaborate in an easy-going and supportive atmosphere. Together we explore the relationship between dance and technology to kickstart the future of performance.

International ODH22 takes place from 7th – 11th February 2022 in Oulu. We are looking for artists from any background to participate.

ODH22 is a safe space for exploration. Participants will work in groups to explore the provided technology within a performance context, guided by experienced mentors. The programme will result in an informal sharing of ideas on the final day, including a small invited audience. This year’s hack features MiMU gloves, projection, moving head lights/lasers, robot dogs and automated platforms, 3D printing/CNC/vinyl cutting/wearable electronics, various sensors and interactive sound.

The residency is free of charge.

TaikaBox is working towards making Oulu Dance Hack a carbon neutral event and hence it aims to support participants’ slow travel and to cover their accommodation expenses. The event is created in partnership with Oulu University of Applied Sciences, Probot Oy, Fab Lab and Kulttuurivoimala – Culture Power Station ry.

To apply: please email us with a letter that states why you want to take part in ODH22, a copy of your CV and any relevant links. Closing date is midnight on 30th November 2021.
