Tjarnarbíó in collaboration with Reykjavík Dance Festival holds the third edition of the performing arts festival Vorblót from 15 April to 18 April.

We are looking for both ready-made works as well as works in progress to show at the festival. The works may have a broad reference to contemporary dance or works made by choreographers or dancers.

We are looking for diverse works both in terms of frame, method and concept that may take place on stage as well as elsewhere, ie. site-specific works. Tjarnarbíó is a “black box” theater and the size of the stage floor is about 9 m. in width x 11 m. at depth. The theater is well equipped with lights and sound equipment, but a simple framework for stage works should be kept in mind as rehearsal time on stage will be limited.

It is expected to select 2 -3 works for exhibitions.

The festival does not pay a fee for the work, but artists receive a favorable share of ticket sales revenue. Tjarnarbíó and Reykjavík Dance Festival will present the works in their media and take care of the marketing and organization of the festival.

The application deadline is midnight on February 28th. The application must include a clear description of the work, photos or video, if any. Applications must be submitted to the e-mail address umsokn@tjarnarbio.is marked in subject: Vorblot2021 [name of artist / group] [name of work]
