Please read the following about our work to ensure you truly believe you could be satisfied working with us:
- The GHT is a small city theatre with budgets correspondingly smaller than those of a German state theater. Salary begins at 2000.–€ per month pre tax.
- We don’t conduct ballet training in the morning, so if ballet class is at all important for you, you’d be unhappy with us. Again: working with us would mean that you will not have ballet class in the morning, but a contemporary research session: joining the company means committing yourself to this. If you believe that you need ballet classes, then working with us would be wrong for you. If you know that you would become unhappy without ballet classes, then working with us would be wrong for you.
- Our central artistic medium is choreographed dance. We sometimes use other performing methods and skills too, however it’s important that you can enjoy working mainly with choreographed dance (rather than preferring performing methods other than choreographed dance, such as acting theatre or the disciplines of performance, installation, action, happening, fluxus, interaction, concept, improvisation or similar verbal or non verbal performing methods).
- We often, though not always, define our movement to very precise musical counts. We require the ability to consciously assign movements to counts, which are sometimes counter-intuitive or very sophisticated; in other words: relying on merely “feeling” the music does not suffice. Working with us will be fulfilling and enjoyable for you only if you are willing to embrace this tool and the challenges presented by enhancing this skill.
- Additionally to creative individual and collaborative input from our dancers, we also require from them the ability to learn given choreographic material, sometimes to a highly precise and detailed extent. Therefore it would be important that you can approach the challenge of learning and performing material created by others as enriching and enjoyable.
- Work in our theatre can sometimes mean stress: a lot must be accomplished, and getting as much rehearsal time as we’d like in order to feel optimally comfortable is sometimes a luxury we must do without. If stress makes you unhappy, working here will make you unhappy. To work with us it would be important that you can approach stress with a positive attitude as an exciting, enriching and promoting element.
- In addition to dance productions, our company is obligated to participate in some of the GHT’s opera, musical & spoken theatre productions. The work in these productions is at least as much as in dance productions, it is taken just as seriously, and it’s important that you commit yourself to this work just as much as to our dance productions.
