International Festival of Animated Dance 2021 for African Creatives

Deadline: November 25th, 2021

The International Festival of Animated Dance is an event entirely dedicated to the promotion of a genre, artistic and cultural, which takes shape at the crossroads of dance and the animated image from digital arts, animated cinema or even plastic arts.

The festival, unique in its kind, wishes to highlight and promote creations where the imaginary and the world of imagery take precedence over real shots. In this sense, productions presenting a work of choreographic animation are requested (cartoons, synthetic animations, stop motions, real-time animations, dance animations in augmented reality, animations in virtual reality, etc.).

It is a moment of international influence of dance animations in all their forms: 2D animations, 3D animations, mixed and experimental animations, live animations, mapping, AR / VR and scenic.
The ambition of the festival is to invite the public to discover animated dance through screenings, retrospectives, meetings and exchanges with actors of a trans-disciplinary and emerging genre.

For four years, Hangars Numériques has been affirming the need for a unique setting for professionals and for the public. The programming is organised online and on site, with particular attention to young audiences. The festival is also the time for restitutions of the annual production residency and co-production carried out by the study and research centre. Specific performances and actions invite us to question the artistic, but also the philosophical, issues underlying the genre.

The unfolding of the festivities takes place in December in Reunion Island and is also available online.​
