Open call for Vorblót Festival 2020
We are looking for ready-made pieces to show at the festival. The works may have a wide appeal to contemporary dance or works by choreographers or dancers.
Tjarnarbio Theater and Dansverkstæðið will offer rehearsal space the week before the festival as circumstances permit. Tjarnarbio Theater is a “black box” theater and the size of the stage floor is approximately 9 m. wide x 11 m. deep. The theater is well equipped with lights and audio equipment, but we still look for a simple setting since time for transitions is scarce. Works that happen elsewhere ie. Site-Specific is also considered.
We aim to select 3 – 5 pieces for the festival.
The festival does not pay fees for the work, but artists receive a favorable share of ticket sales revenue. Tjarnarbíó and Reykjavík Dance Festival will present the selected works on their mediums and will manage the marketing and organization of the festival.
Application deadline is midnight February 14th. The application must include a detailed description of the work, pictures or video, if available. Applications should be sent to email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: Vorblot2020 [artist / group name] [work name]
