Short new dance productions are Wanted!

Planned date of the festival

15-18 January 2020 | Budapest – Hungary

The competition program of the Festival can receive 20 solo and 20 duo performances to avoid overstressing the jury and the audience. We want to ensure the possibility for everyone to perform regardless of the large number of applications, therefor SzoloDuo Festival is going to be completed with nomination-rounds. The nomination rounds will be held in three different countries.

The festival can not host performances in which there is no intention for a unique presentation, which means improvisations without any structure, or a choreography that was performed before will not be accepted.

Application deadline to the Hungarian-nomination round: 1 November 2019.
Application deadline to the video round: 1 November 2019

(The latest arrival date of the application form, the youtube link, and the registration fee!)

If the applicant wishes to perform his /her show live in the Hungarian nomination-round is welcome but his/her trip is self-financed.

Orkesztika Alapítvány (Foundation) reserves the right for all changes.
