Call for Submissions 2011
[ This news item is in English because many of the dance makers in Rotterdam are from abroad ]
Deadline: March 31st, 2011 (extended)
Our aim is to organize the festival in June 2011, but we cannot give an exact date yet.
The festival dates are 24/ 25/ 26 June 2011.
Open Dans is a festival for:
- Dance and related art; choreography, dance art, dance video, dance installation, dance workshops, dance jam, dance improvisation, site-specific dance
- All genres of dance, including but not limited to modern, tango, hiphop, fusion, tap, etcetera
- Finished pieces, try-out or work-in-progress (don't hesitate to submit crazy, fresh ideas)
- Not only performances but also concerts, debate, workshops
We are looking for:
- Urgency, choreography that needs to be made and shown to the public
- Enthusiasm, commitment, ambition
- People with strong connection to Rotterdam
- A diverse program, all genres and forms
- Young makers, who do not have had many opportunities to show their work
- Works that can be adjusted to the sober technical conditions of the festival
- A stage with basic equipment
- Or the possibility to fit work to the festival location
- Promotion, to the general audience as well as to dance professionals
- An action packed weekend with many other dance enthusiasts
- We aim to offer a modest fee to participants, but are still awaiting the outcome of our funding applications
