With tanz digital, dance artists, dance ensembles and dance institutions (venues, archives, dance schools, mediation projects, etc.) are to be strengthened in the medial presentation of artistic productions.

The goals of the project are the development of innovative choreographic/artistic formats and the testing of new recording and production formats - e.g. working with bodycams, 3D and 360° recording techniques, VR and AR applications, streaming and video-on-demand productions, format development for social networks and gaming.

The 3rd call for proposals has ended - the grantees will be announced at the end of December

"tanz:digital" - 3rd call for proposals starts on 19.09.2022 / application deadline 06.11.2022!

On the one hand, the call is intended to promote innovative approaches that experiment with new formats and technologies. On the other hand, the application and transformation of already proven formats for work with a larger ensemble and for a large audience is also to be promoted. Follow-up projects as well as digitisation projects are desired.

Applications should therefore also include information about the ensemble's working methods, current and planned productions and information about audience reach. Funding is available for the media implementation of dance artistic and dance educational / dance mediating projects. Eligible for funding are the associated personnel and fee costs, travel expenses, material costs and acquisitions. In this context, it is also important to strengthen the cooperation between dance artists and dance archives.

The amount of funding is up to 60,000 €. An own contribution of 10% in cash is required for all projects. Information about the applicant, a project description, a cost and financing plan and, if applicable, a letter of intent from the cooperation partner (in the case of cooperation with a dance archive) must be submitted.

Eligible to apply are natural persons and legal entities based in Germany with a focus on dance.

The application deadline is Sunday, 6 November 2022. Click here for the FAQs. An independent jury of dance and media experts will decide on the applications in mid-December 2022.

The projects must be realised between January and June 2023. If possible, they should be presented on a technical platform developed by the Dachverband Tanz Deutschland together with member institutions and associations and can also go online on the applicant's own websites and platforms.

Save The Date! The first information event will take place on 29.09.2022 3-4 pm via Zoom. Registration via email: tanz-digital@dachverband-tanz.de
