Nomadi Productions announces an open call for dance artists / companies / venues / enthusiasts to take part in the collaboration project Dance Avalanche. The aim of the project is to exchange ideas and know-how, to enhance the mobility of high quality dance performances (in and outside of the country of residence) and explore the essence of Nordic mindscape (if such exists!) via dance art. The project will take place in at least three Nordic countries, Finland being the first one to host in 2016.
Behind the project is the Helsinki-based production house Nomadi Productions, which manages the artistic work of Alpo Aaltokoski Company and Arja Raatikainen & Co. In 2016, these two contemporary dance companies celebrate their 20 years on the professional dance field.
Through a simple application process at least two actors – organizations or independent artists – will be selected in the project. At least one of them should be a resident of the Nordic countries (Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark) and one possibly from the following areas: Åland, Faroe Islands, Greenland. You may apply as an independent artist or an organization, a venue, dance company, a society etc. We look forward to receive a variety of propositions. In case of any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Dance Avalanche project will be launched in Finland in the summer of 2016 as part of the multidisciplinary DRIFT – Dance in Suomenlinna festival. DRIFT takes place on the historic island fortress of Suomenlinna just off the coast of Helsinki. Dates for year 2016 are: July 31st – August 6th.
