First time at a Battle / Jam?
How it works:
A battle is a contest which may be in groups, pairs or one on one. In this case there will be one on one. We have chosen a category - experimental - which is a "broad" category, which also reflects the dance's development, both in street and modern dance.
Who will compete?
It is open for anyone to compete. We have set a maximum number of 30 contestants. Who competes with whom is decided through a lottery.
What does the scene look like?
The Small stage will be an open Black Box. In the middle of the scene is the Battle-ground and to one side the three judges are sitting. The spectators and other contestants are sitting and standing around. There are also two dance floors on the sides where you can dance between the competitions or just warm up when you need.
How does the contest work?
You start with casting contests that is about 3 minutes. It starts with one contestant who shows who they are and what they can. Then the other dancer (the opponent) does the same thing. The three judges determine directly who wins that particular battle. It then goes into the quarter finals, semi finals and finals. At some point during the competition the judges will each do a solo performance.
