A 5-day residency in Northern Finland exploring the relationships between dance and technology.

Where: Oulu, Finland

When: 07.02.2022 – 11.02.2022

Deadline for applications: 30.11.2021

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.

ODH22 takes place from 7th – 11th February in Oulu/Oulunsalo. 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.

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.
