“ChoreoLab – Made in Ulm 2020”. 249 Choreographic Failures.

Following the success of the choreographic works created, sold out performances and critical acclaim we are proud to announce our second open call for “ChoreoLab – Made in Ulm” in 2020. We are offering three choreographic residency opportunities to talented upcoming dance makers. This is an open call to choreographers up to 35 years young on the 21st of August 2020. We will commission talented emerging creators and give them the opportunity to conceptualise, create, execute and premier their work in a black box stage with four professional dancers. You will be collaborating with local choreographer Pablo Sansalvador to create an evening of dance inspired by this years theme and title: ‘249 Choreographic Failures’ (249CF).

The 2020 theme is in memory of Albrecht Ludwig Berblinger’s 250th birthday. Berblinger was an ingenious and a risk-taking inventor from Ulm. Better known as "Schneider von Ulm" he went down in history in 1811 for his failed flight attempt.
As part of the anniversary celebrations "Berblinger 2020” is generating artistic works based on innovation, inventiveness, courage and adaptability in our urban society. Berblinger’s resilience through failure is what defined him and what inspires us. “ChoreoLab – Made in Ulm” is honouring Berblinger by inviting dance makers to create choreography from a leaping off point that we constantly try to avoid; Failure.

We invite dance makers, choreographers, film-makers and artists to connect to create a 60 second short film demonstrating a ‘Choreographic Failure’. A jury will select 10 finalists of whom each will be awarded 100 euros for their efforts. Then the ten shortlisted films will be shared in a public space where people from Ulm can watch each film and vote for whom they would like to see awarded the residency. We have up to three one week residencies to offer. Be brave, there is no wrong way to fail.

How will the winners of the residency be selected?
A jury will select 10 finalists by the end of May and each will be awarded 100 euros. The ten finalist films will be displayed in a public space in Ulm's city centre and presented during the Ulm Moves Dance Festival in June 2020. Members of the public and dance aficionados will vote for up to three choreographers to create a short work representing ‘choreographic failure’ for ChoreoLab - Made in Ulm 2020.
