TANZAHOi International Dance and Dance Film Festival will bring outstanding international dance productions to Hamburg via livestream for the 2021 digital festival, Take Part in Another World.

In the midst of theater restrictions and an unforeseeable end to a reduced-contact era in the arts, many artists and institutions have discovered streaming technology for themselves in order to not completely lose contact with their audience. After a successful live-streamed dance film festival in 2020, we wish to continue cultivating a digital platform for this year’s upcoming festival, streaming live performances from around the world in real time. We are interested in showing existing productions, but also in stimulating new productions conceived especially for TANZAHOi.

The Live-Stream Aesthetic
‍An even more interesting challenge of for-the-screen-adapted productions is the task of expanding the aesthetics of the audience’s limited view by, for example, directing attention to the camera work. These images should be precisely choreographed, bringing a dynamic to the sequence that can only exist in the filmed-form, and should develop a unique audience experience compared to the live performance. The use of several cameras and film-angles should be considered. We would like to make a contribution to the further development of “livestream aesthetics”, as we see multi-media and hybrid productions as a sustainable future opportunity for the arts.

* We will offer 4.000 € (incl. exchange fees) to the selected productions to achieve the live-stream of their work.
Important: this grant only supports the implementation of the visual concept for the livestream to Hamburg in the period from September 3-5, 2021. It does not cover the payment of dancers, choreographers or the venue.

* Every applicant, regardless of the selection result, will receive 30% off a festival pass to encourage all artists to take part in our festival this year! The discount code will e sent upon submission of the application.

Announcement of the Open Call result will be made on 1. May 2021.
