DanceHack is back for year six! This year’s showcase will feature never-before-seen performance, installations, and dance— all generated within 48 hours of transdisciplinary collaboration among Bay Area artists.
At DanceHack, participants will engage in multiple workshops offered by experts in the fields of dance and technology. Day 1 will be dedicated to hacking and experimentation while Day 2 will feature performances based on the previous day’s discoveries. Only in the span of a weekend, about 80 participants will discover unconventional applications of new technological tools by collaborating with movement research and live performance. About 14 different projects illustrating the ideas generated between these collaborations will be showcased on the last day.
About the Performance Showcase
This unique performance showcase will present groundbreaking modes of expression sparked in the intersection of creative technology and dance. Each year DanceHack offers shockingly new experiences as performers incorporate tools like projection mapping, machine learning, virtual reality, and repurposed biometric data.
DanceHack 2020 is supported by the San Francisco Grants for the Arts’ Neighborhood Arts Collaborative.
