“The Dance Hack was a full-on collaborative research laboratory for artists interested in the hybridity of dance performance and technology, like a big, beautiful creative sandbox of movement making and tech systems. Oulu is a beautiful city, and a hotbed for high tech research in Finland, the perfect place for intensive experimentation in new modes of performance for dance improvisation, choreography and technology.
– Scotty Hardwig, dance & digital media artist and Assistant Professor of Dance at Middlebury College, Vermont, USA
“A wonderful opportunity to share our skills and develop this new and exciting art form. I feel like the event brought technologists dancers and artists together in a unique cross-cultural experience.”
– Ed Grimoldby, digital artist, UK
“To be part of Oulu Dance Hack was a great deal, for interaction, ideas on the spot and ‘hands-on’ work done artistically while experimenting with dance and technology not done before. It’s a good immersive and intense laboratory and event, where I could evolve in such a short amount of time, getting to be in contact with many diverse and interesting artists and students of multimedia and dance.”
– Cristina Benedita, dance artist, Lisbon, Portugal
