TiDA -Théâtre Danse invites international artists and companies to apply for the 2018 edition of the International new dance festival T*Danse – Danse et technologie.
Where: Aosta, Italy
When: 15th – 21st October 2018
Deadline for applications: 31st December 2017
The festival will take place from 15th to 21st October 2018 at the Cittadella dei Giovani, located in Aosta’s city centre.
Professional solo artists and companies operating in the field of contemporary performing arts can apply. Amateur groups and schools are excluded.
We want to bring to the Aosta Valley a view on the contemporary scene, with a specific focus on the body as an expressive instrument. The focus of the project is the relationship between dance and technology, for the role that new technologies have in everyday life and in the artistic creation. But we consider the concept of technology in the broadest sense: technologies of the scene, of course, but also communication technologies, technologies of the individual, technology and political activism: technology in the true sense of a “discourse on art”. Dance is also considered in its broadest sense, as a body, physicality, movement.
We require every artist to stay for the entire duration of the festival in order to participate in all the activities, meetings, conferences and to the performances of their fellow artists. It is an opportunity to fight consumerism in the performing arts, and to build a critical and active community.
We ask every applicant to agree to conduct a masterclass for a mixed public (not only professionals), as part of our audience development actions.
We also ask every applicant to participate in a meeting with the audience during the evening of his/her performance and to a feedback meeting (feedback aperò) the day after his/her own performance.
Hospitality is one of the characteristics of this festival: artists are hosted by locals. This helps to build an authentic connection between the city, its inhabitants, the festival and the artists.
The festival will cover the following expenses for the participants:
– Professional fees
– Travel expenses
– Per diems
– Accommodation: artists will be hosted by locals.
