Oulu Dance Hack is an annual research and performance event that is organised by TaikaBox and Oulu University of Applied Sciences (OAMK) to bring 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 OAMK, who work alongside the professional artists, gaining valuable experience.

The first three Hacks have been hosted in the EduLAB and Dance Department at OAMK, with support from JoJo, SKR, BusinessOulu, Isadora, Probot, Haltian, Delicode, Luuppi, PlaySign, smARTplaces, eTOPIA and Kulttuurivoimala. Some of the visiting artists have been supported by STEP travel grants from the ECF.

If you are an artist interested in exploring the process of integrating dance and technology, look out for the call in April each year. If you are a technology business - particularly those based in Oulu - and interested in new opportunities for testing, developing and documenting your product then please get in touch with TaikaBox.
