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 http://www.r-2-m.net
Applicants must demonstrate the following essential requirements:
