When: Thursday 9th February, 2017

The work:
Room 2 Manoeuvre is seeking 1 male dancer to join their team for the creation of a new hip hop dance theatre piece, Without a Hitch. It is the story of the downward spiral of a 4 man breakdance crew. The work will use a mixture of breaking, physical theatre and text to explore this theme. The work is both physical and subtle and requires this performance range from any applicant. The project will be based in Edinburgh, the home of the company, with rehearsals and performances in Oulu, Finland and a UK tour in the autumn. Please familiarise yourself with the company at

Applicants must demonstrate the following essential requirements:

 A high technical ability of Breakdance vocabulary such as top rock, foot work, freezes and power moves (you should at least be able to do a continuous windmill). Formally trained dancers with such skills are encouraged to apply.
The ability to demonstrate a range of sensitivity, from dynamic breaking moves to more subtle qualities.
A proven track record of working professionally (please bring a CV).
A good level of spoken English. This work will involve the use of text and applicants must be comfortable with speaking on stage.

As well as the above, it is desirable that applicants should have experience of other movement styles and practices such as contemporary dance, physical theatre, contact and partnering work, using theatrical expression/acting and working creatively by themselves and in a group. Basic acrobatic skills (round off back flip, front/rear somersault) would be an advantage. The company likes to work with performers as collaborators and therefore any applicant should be prepared to invest some of their own personality into the work.
