Abby Zbikowski/Abby Z and the New Utility are looking for 2-3 dancers who would be paid hourly for rehearsal and performances. Dancers must be interested exploring their body’s physical and mental possibilities and impossibilities, but do not need to be working within one particular movement style or discipline to audition. Dancers/athletes with diverse training backgrounds are encouraged to come out! Experience with African and Afro-Diasporic Forms like House, Hip-Hop, or B-boy/B-girl is helpful, but not necessary. Dancers must be open, willing, and ready to push their bodies beyond their current assumed thresholds of exhaustion, as they will be expected to work through extreme fatigue while still delivering clarity of energy and intention on movement. Must be able to rehearse on Saturdays, Sundays, and occasionally Wednesdays. Rehearsals will take place in both NYC and Philadelphia. Travel and lodging will always be covered.
When: Sunday August 14, 2016 from 12pm-3pm; Please be warmed up and ready to move at noon!
Where: Peridance Capezio Center, Studio #3, 126 East 13th Street, NY, NY 10003
Deadline for applications: August 12th
