Project Phases

 

Selection

  1. Candidates are called to:
    - download the
    DanceMe+ app for free on the AppStore
    - create a user profile on the DanceMe app
    - record and post on Danceme 2017 Studio within the app a video no more than 5 minutes long (see tutorial). The videos may show an improvisation or extracts from a choreography that is part of the artistic repertoire of the dancers.
  2. Among the authors of the videos that have been published and posted on DanceMe 2017 by Sunday 30th April 12:00pm, no more than five dancers will be selected.
    The list of their names will be made public on the website
    www.danceme.org and on the Facebook page Perypezye Urbane within one week after the deadline of the call.
  3. The selected dancers will have to participate in a briefing meeting via Skype (project kick-off).

 

  Online Residency and live performance

  1. The dancers selected through the present call will participate in the project from 8th May 2017 to 30th June 2017.
  2. From 8th May the selected dancers will constantly post on the DanceMe app video clips regarding their choreographic creation process (online residency) on Migrations.
  3. At the end of the online residency, only one of the dancers will be selected to showcase a live performance. Her/his name, which will be made public on the website www.danceme.org and on the Facebook page Perypezye Urbane, will be selected based on the unappealable judgment of a commission.
  4. The selected performance will be refined in a one-week residency at Teatro Sociale in Camogli and showcased live in July at Teatro Hop Altrove in Genoa and at Teatro Sociale in Camogli.

 

Subject

The theme of migration is extremely topical. According to the latest statistics, there are 244 million migrants in the world. 65.3 million of them were forced to flee their country because of war and persecution. A phenomenon of this magnitude is bound to have a strong social impact that we are all called to question.

 

 

Economic conditions for participants

The five selected dancers will receive a total gross payment of EUR 2,500.00 each for their participation in the on-line residency.

The dancer selected for the live performance will be entitled to receive a further gross payment of EUR 1,000.00.  

 

Creative contributions from the audience

The artists will work in close connection with one another and with the audience by using the DanceMe app, which will be a tool for sharing their creative and multimedia materials.

The app can be used by anyone who wants to participate actively in the project by posting comments, expressing their appreciation with a Like and publishing their videos to inspire the choreographic creation.  

 

DanceMe is an innovative app about dance aimed at choreographic co-creation and thus intends to:

  • experiment with new modes of audience engagement via digital means.
  • promote an innovative form of virtual residency.
