When: Wednesday 9th & Thursday 10th October 2019
Deadline for applications: Wednesday 9th October 2019
*** OPEN CALL FOR DANCER APPLICATIONS – Invite Only To Audition ***
As a company, our plans for 2020 include a multitude of performances across England and Scotland including London, Brighton & Edinburgh. We have recently been selected to perform at The Place in London as part of the annual dance festival, Resolution 2020. The company will perform for one evening on Wednesday 19th February 2020, alongside two other chosen companies. This will be the first performance of our new work, with later dates to follow in the year.
Led by Artistic Director, Jasmine Andrews, the company specialise in contemporary dance theatre work rooted in storytelling. The company are looking to explore creating a new identity, pushing the boundary between hip hop and contemporary dance theatre. We are therefore looking for strong, creative and individual dance artists from either a contemporary or urban background, who have a strong sense of musicality, dynamics and are natural storytellers. Due to the nature of the work we do, it is imperative that you are able to adapt to a character and can engage with both live musicians and singers.
If successful, you will be invited to a workshop/audition session led by Artistic Director, Jasmine Andrews, alongside other artists to assess your suitability within our ensemble. This session will be held the evening of Wednesday 9th October 2019 in West London, with potential callbacks taking place the evening of Thursday 10th October 2019 at the same venue if necessary. Please advise within your e-mail if you will be available for both. Specific details such as time and address to follow upon invitation to audition. Expenses will be paid throughout
To apply, please initially register your interest via email to firstname.lastname@example.org enclosing your CV, headshot and links to online uploaded footage of your artistic practice. We request that you please include ‘DANCER – Your Name’ in the subject line of your e-mail, and refrain from sending downloadable file footage.
