Sprint: digital creative residency with Rambert, Britain’s oldest dance company – £7.5k/£15k – deadline 10 September 2015


Sprint is a new initiative to foster relationships between digital creatives and Rambert’s dance practitioners. Sprint aims to facilitate experimentation and exchange of knowledge, and open up approaches using technology.

– Combine the physical and the digital
– Be open about process
– Share skills and best practice
– Explore user testing and iteration of prototypes based on feedback
– Work closely with Rambert’s dancers, staff and the residency producers
