Dance & Music
Workshop Daniel Linehan & Stefan Prins
With selection process

Deadline for applications: 15 March 2018
Duration: 15 – 27 July 2018 (with a showing on 27 July 2018)
– transdisciplinary collaboration between dance performance and composition/musical performance
Looking for Composers, Musicians, Dancers, and Performance Artists who want to collaborate.
For composers and/or instrumental performers who want to develop a project with dancers/performance artists and for dancers/performance artists who want to develop a project with composers and/or instrumental performers. You can apply as a group already consisting of composers, performers, or dancers, or you can apply individually, in which case we will try to partner you up according to your artistic needs.
You can apply with a specific concept/project, or with a more abstract desire to develop a transdisciplinary collaboration, which then will take shape concretely during the workshops, working through conceptual approaches and practical strategies.
We are especially interested in collaborations in which each of the different media inspires and generates a different approach for the other through close collaboration and experimentation. The focus is on the working process, rather than the finished product.
At the end of the workshop in Darmstadt we will organise a public showing, in which the result or work-in-progress of your collaboration will be presented.
The workshop consists of a working period during the Darmstadt Summer Course: 15 – 28 July 2018 (with a showing on 28 July 2018).
At this stage, we are planning to offer 2-3 hours/day for each group to work independently on their project.
Additionally, we would like to have a communal moment (2 hours) each day, where everyone is present to discuss each other’s work and its evolution. This is subject to change and depends on the projects, size of groups, rooms etc.
Partial scholarships for dancers
For dancers, we’ll be granting up to 7 partial scholarships for this project that will consist of a 50% reduction of the participation fee for the Darmstadt Summer Course.
All selected artists must be registered participants of the Summer Course and will be given preference during registration.
