Application form

As part of a new programme for children and youngsters, Dansehallerne is touring the country with artistic concepts and works that aim to let young audiences meet dance and choreography as an art form – as spectators and participants.

We are interested in developing new artistic and communicative formats where the understanding of dance for and with young audiences is challenged.

The formats can be developed for inside activity in day care institutions/kindergartens and schools, as site specifics or installations, but we also welcome other kinds of artistic expressions and formats.

Productions for day care and kindergartens

We are looking for:

  • Three works or concepts which have already been created or tested or which can be developed within Dansehallerne’s production frames .
  • Works or concepts that address children from the age of 0-2,5 years and 2,5– 6 years.
  • Works or concepts with a duration af 60 minutes for a group of 15-20 children or 3-5 hours for all the children in the institution (divided in three groups during the day).
  • Works or concepts that contain one or two artists willing to tour in Denmark during the 2019/20 season.

  • Three works or concepts that address school children from one of the following groups.: Grade 0 – 3, 4 –6 and 7 –10. Duration: 90 minutes. Participants: 50 – 60 children.

  • At least one of the artists in the group must hold a driving license.
  • On tour the company will typically perform two short or one long work per day.
  • The scenography of the works/concepts should be simple and easy to move and not demand blackout.

  • A development and production period from 5 to 15 days where the artists work with the concept and test the results with an audience.
  • Professional advisory. e.g. a dramaturg, a dance facilitator or other.
