ABOUT THE AUDITION

Sunday, August 25th

2:00 pm  | Sign In

2:30 - 5pm | Audition

No late admittance

Seeking 7-9 advanced dancers for three (3) works:

The resetting of an interdisciplinary contemporary ballet work, an extremely physical and rigorous contemporary work which will be created throughout the residency, and a satirical duet (male role only; female lead confirmed).

 

Advanced dance training necessary. Dancers are encouraged to arrive early to sign in and prepare their bodies. The audition will include a short warm up, the learning of varied phrase material and repertory work, a short improvisation, and a game. Dancers should have a strong foundation in ballet and contemporary technique. Dancers should also be very comfortable learning material quickly - WE WILL WORK FAST! Experience with contemporary partnering and contact improvisation is a plus. Dancers should show interest in and passion for movement outside of the audition - Please bring a headshot and a resume to the audition or pre-register below.

 

Rehearsals are tentatively scheduled for Monday and Tuesday evenings and Wednesday afternoons. 

The project will run August 26th through performance day September 14th.
