EMPAC DANCE MOViES COMMISSION 2010-2011: OPEN CALL FOR PROPOSALS
Submission deadline: April 15, 2010 

EMPAC is now accepting proposals for its 2010-2011 DANCE MOViES Commission. Selected artists 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.

The commission has funded thirteen projects in the last four years, including a finger puppet musical, a poetic autobiography shot entirely in Mozambique, a film were three street kids in the streets of Rio seem to juggle air, and a video installation created through 3D laser scanning.

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. 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.

For more information on the DANCE MOViES Commission, including new guidelines and how to apply, please visit the DANCE MOViES Commission website. Guidelines and information also available in Spanish.
