EMPAC DANCE MOVIES COMMSSION 2009-2010: OPEN CALL FOR PROPOSALS:  deadline MAY 1

 

Troy, NY—In 2007, its inaugural year, EMPAC's DANCE MOViES Commission
received more than 150 applications from dance-filmmakers in North and South
America.  The four films that resulted are currently touring in festivals in
the US and abroad. As the first major US-based commissioning program
available to dance-film artists in the Americas, the DANCE MOViES Commission
represents an important opportunity for those working at the intersection of
the moving body and the moving image. Selected artists receive awards
ranging up to $50,000.

 

EMPAC (the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center at Rensselaer
Polytechnic Institute) is now accepting proposals for its 2009-2010
commissions. The deadline for the proposals is May 1, 2009.

 

This year, with the opening of the EMPAC building in the fall of 2008,
artists may apply to create their DANCE MOViES works in conjunction with the
Artist-in-Residence program at EMPAC.  Works commissioned may take advantage
of EMPAC's spaces and technology, using infrastructure such as
computer-controlled rigging or large-scale immersive studio environments.

 

Backed by the Jaffe Fund for Experimental Media and Performing Arts, the
DANCE MOViES Commission supports works for the screen including film, video,
installation and other audio-visual formats. The works may be narrative in
nature or abstract; they may range in length (up to 20 minutes); they will
certainly vary in style, technique and expressive intent. 

 

The four commissioned projects in 2007 included a poetic film based on the
autobiographical account of an US-based African choreographer returning to
dance in Zimbabwe; a work featuring American veterans of the war in Iraq; an
Argentinean video interlacing pure movement, form and architecture; and a
piece in which a contemporary Russian dancer is viewed in the aesthetic
context of post-Soviet surveillance. 

 

Four further works are in production now from the 2008 cycle.  They include
an installation created through 3D laser scanning; a finger puppet musical;
a dance film created in one long take by veterans of music video; and the
third in a mind-bending trilogy experimenting with reversing movement that
is already danced in reverse.

 

The DANCE MOViES Commissions encompass a wide range of projects. They may
take advantage of a variety of tools, such as computer processing, motion
capture, simulation, animation, image processing and post-production
technologies. Some may not portray "dance," per se, at all. All will,
however, reflect or refer to the power of movement unfurling in time. 

 

The DANCE MOViES Commission is intended to support experimental works in
which the onscreen images are crafted by, or in collaboration with, a
choreographer or movement-based artist. The commission was not created to
support documentaries, feature-length films or commercial films that feature
dance. 

 

DANCE MOViES Commission application

 

The EMPAC DANCE MOViES Commission is a competitive open proposal process, in
which eligible artists or groups from North or South America submit a
project proposal.  The initial proposals are reviewed and a small number of
artists are invited to submit a detailed proposal to an international panel.
The panel assesses the quality and feasibility of the proposed project and
submits its recommendations to EMPAC. The commissions are awarded by EMPAC
after review.

 

Upon awarding of the commission, the artist or collaborative team has one
year to complete the project, at which point the work is premiered at EMPAC,
shown at dance film festivals around the world, and credited as an EMPAC
DANCE MOViES Commission. 

 

The deadline for the proposals is May 1, 2009.

download the guidelines and application form, please visit the EMPAC
website.  Guidelines and application available in Spanish.
