Apply For Dansathon

Europe’s First Dance + Tech Hackathon

Initiated by BNP Paribas Foundation and Maison de la Danse Lyon, Dansathon is the first European dance hackathon. Sadler’s Wells, together with Théâtre de Liège, is one of the partners to produce this 3-city event from 28 to 30 September 2018.

Dansathon invites dancers, technologists, designers, creatives and makers to imagine the future of dance. This playful, social event is an opportunity to explore ways to harness the power of dance and technology to connect worlds and cross boundaries.

 

Teams will form on the first day to work together and create a prototype based on one of the challenges issued. A winning project will be selected on the third day in each city and awarded with €10,000 as seed fund to bring it to the next stage, with the support of each theatre.
