Schweigman& is looking for experienced female dancers for the restaging of the performance Wiek.
Where: the Netherlands
Deadline for applications: 30 October 2017
Schweigman& is a Utrecht – based theatre company under the artistic leadership of Boukje Schweigman.
Wiek: The starting – point of the performances is the body in space, with a focus on the physical presence of performers and audience and the sensitivity connected with this shared presence. In the complex choreography of Wiek the three dancers are confronting the elements; the sand under their feet, weather conditions in the open air and the inescapable, independently rotating horizontal blades of a rotor.
Schweigman& is looking for experienced, female dancers with strong dance technique, subtle performance quality, virtuosity, and physical stamina. Candidates should have completed a professional dance education, preferably in modern/contemporary, and have an affinity with the works of Schweigman& that straddle the genres and techniques of dance and Dutch mime/physical performance theatre.
For this work the dancers need to be highly skilled in jumping as well as floorwork and need to be accustomed to working with an existing complex choreography. The performance is danced on bare feet in sand, within a specially designed circular arena in the open air.
No expenses are payable for the auditions.
