19-22 January 2022 | Budapest – Hungary
SzólóDuó 2022 will take place live in Budapest that is our goal and intention. However preparing to every scenario regarding the changing rules and travel restrictions due to the pandemic we will ask participants for a video recording when applying. Hopefully it won’t be the case but if the festival can not happen live we will move it online. Thus you will need a video about your performance when applying!
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 2021.
Application deadline to the video round: 15 November 2021
(The latest arrival date of the application form, the youtube link!)
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.
