Dance Hack is all about bringing the world of dance and technology together. From installations, via experimentation, to performances.

We like to experiment, we like to learn and have fun together. That is why we organize Dance Hack.

Dance Hack started in San Francisco. Wei and Dai from Kinetech organized the first Dance Hack (Day) in 2014. In 2015 Anastasia and Maarten from Animu joined with an Amsterdam edition. Since then we experiment also with sending data across the different cities (London and Shanghai have joined as well), creating a truly interconnected, cross continental festival. More info about Dance Hack San Francisco: dancehack.org

We invite dancers, choreographers, musicians, composers, coders, hackers and other creative folk to join us for the technological, artistic and cultural mash up!

This years Dance Hack will take place on 2 and 3 december.

We create an open platform where we enable dancers, hackers and musicians to encounter each other and to exchange around their interests, investigations and practices. Therefore, this year’s edition stands in the light of interconnecting, meeting the place between dance and hack; in short, encouraging collaborations to happen! The theme of this year’s event is Global Weather.
