TaikaBox | Open Call | Oulu Dance Hack 2022

Taikabox is looking for artists from any background to participate to Oulu Dance Hack 2022 which takes place from 7-11 February in Oulu/Oulunsalo, Finland.

Deadline: 30 November 2021

TaikaBox is dedicated to creating new ways to experience dance. They combine technology, movement, community, sustainability and creativity to enhance and enrich expression and experience.

Oulu Dance Hack 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 they explore the relationship between dance and technology to kickstart the future of performance.

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.
