Cie. Woest is looking for dancers and acrobats with a strong contemporary dance base for a new performance: professionals and a stagiaire.
Where: Amsterdam and Antwerp
This summer 2016 Cie. Woest will create the new site specific performance Lucky Shots, in which we will research the concept of weightlessness. It will be a research in failing and achieving almost impossible physical challenges.
It will be a physical challenging process, a game between gravity and the body. Our approach for this work will consist of lots of partner work, therefore we are looking for physical strong dancers/acrobats who like working on location. After a three week rehearsal process we will present a first draft at the Spoffin festival in the end of August. In the spring of 2017 we will remount Lucky Shots and present it at at least 6 festivals.
Because of the special conditions of working on location we are looking for performers who:
• are interested in working on location
• are open-minded.
• are physically strong and have good stamina / overall fitness
• are prepared for the unpredictable conditions of nature / weather
• who have affinity with the visual dance theater of Woest.
• Audition dates: June 5, Dansmakers Amsterdam – June 6, Antwerp
• Call-back in workshop format: June 22 and 23, Antwerp or Amsterdam
• Rehearsal period: July 19, 20, 21, Antwerp – July 26, 27, 28, Amsterdam – August 1 – 5, Amersfoort – August 22 – 26, Amersfoort
• Previews 2016: August 27 and 28, Amersfoort
• 2nd rehearsal period / montage: 2 weeks in April/May 2017.
> Premiere and tour 2017: already 6 festivals booked in May, June and July, more to come.
> You need to be able to attend all the rehearsal dates.
> Note: Bring (warm) dance clothes and indoor/outdoor dance shoes with you as we will work both inside and outside.
> It concerns 3 paid positions and 1 internship.
