Oulu Dance Hack is an annual event that brings together art, industry and education in a unique way. Artists travel from all over the world to spend a week in Northern Finland, together creating new work that integrates dance and technology. Local industries contribute their products to the project, giving artists unique opportunities to work with new technologies and adapt them to a performance context.
The teams are augmented by dance and media students from Oulu University of Applied Sciences, who work alongside the professional artists, gaining valuable experience.
The first Oulu Dance Hack happened in August 2016, produced by TaikaBox in association with the OAMK School of Media and Performing Arts and JoJo - Oulu Dance Centre, with support from Isadora, BusinessOulu, Haltian and Probot.
The 2017 Oulu Dance Hack will be running from 23rd to 25th August in the dance studios at OAMK.
