5 days in Northern Finland exploring the relationship between dance and technology.

Where: Valve Cultural Centre, Oulu, Finland

When: 27.5.2024 – 31.5.2024

Deadline for applications: 18.2.2024

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

Applications are welcome from artists, coders, designers, musicians, dancers, etc – who can demonstrate a commitment to collaboration with a focus on integrating the moving body into their practice.

ODH24 is a safe space for exploration. Participants will work together to explore the provided technology within a performance context, guided by experienced mentors. The programme will include a matchmaking event  and ends with an informal sharing of ideas on the final day – with a small invited audience.

The idea of the Dance Hack transdisciplinary concept is to work collectively on new ideas, rather than preparing things beforehand. The technological theme of this Hack is yet to be confirmed, so anything could happen. The focus is on the relationship between dance and technology, and the process of integrating the two. Last year, we had sensors, interactive projection and soundscape, live musicians and AI.

ODH is committed to environmental sustainability. We will cover the cost of the participants’ slow travel and cannot accept participants who use air travel in relation to participating in ODH24. Accommodation is provided if required.
