The Festival International de Vidéo Danse de Bourgogne, an annual screendance platform in France is preparing its 8th edition. The theme will be “Les Danses Macabres: Death and the Moving Image”. This theme may be interpreted broadly. Beyond explorations of death through movement, we are also interested in works of screendance that explore mortality through rituals, analogies, and related subjects, including but not limited to: requiems, architectural ruins, ghosts and memory, the Gothic, Romanticism, Butoh, André Bazin’s “mummy complex”, absence/presence, death as new beginning or transformation, etc.

The Rome Media Art Festival is an event promoted by the Fondazione Mondo Digitale. The aim is to build up a field dedicated to the relationship between art and technology in order to enhance the value of artistic products made through digital means. The event is meant to be a bridge between research centers, schools, universities and companies, getting the younger generations closer to a new way of using and conceiving technology.
Sound acts is an annual get-together, a showcase of creative couplings between music/sound, performance art/gesture and gender/body/activism.
The first instalment of event took place in Athens in April 2015, through both theoretical presentations and discussions, as well as musical (or amusical) performances, interventions and installations. The event’s purpose was twofold: on the one hand it was an opportunity for local underground artists to present their work in such a context for the first time in Athens and on the other to establish connections between greek practitioners/theoreticians and the international community.
