Troy, NY – In April, while artists propose new works to be made for  
this round of the DANCE MOViES Commission, the five projects currently  
in progress will be finishing up post-production for a premiere at  
EMPAC in the fall. Projects from past years continue to tour to  
festivals and film venues around the world.

EMPAC (the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center at Rensselaer  
Polytechnic Institute) is now accepting proposals for its 2010-2011  
DANCE MOViES Commissions. The deadline for the proposals is April 15,  
2010. This year, selected artists will receive awards ranging up to  
$30,000.

In addition to the funding, artists can also apply to create their  
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.

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. The commission has funded thirteen  
projects in the last four years, with four of them also winning  
residencies at EMPAC.

There are up to 150 submissions per year, with four to five winning  
proposals. Artists selected can be from North or South America: a  
majority of recipients have been from the US, some working in  
international teams, with other winners also coming from Mexico,  
Brazil, Argentina and Canada.

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 certainly vary in style, technique and expressive  
intent.

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.

DMC APPLICATION PROCESS

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, and shown at dance film festivals around the world.

The deadline for the proposals is April 15, 2010.

For more information on the DANCE MOViES Commission, including new  
guidelines and how to apply, please visit http://www.empac.rpi.edu/commissions/DMC/ 
. Guidelines and information also available in Spanish.
