Sweetshop Revolution are seeking two to three professional contemporary dancers as well as actors who can move for their new, full-length work, ‘I’m Not Dead, I’m Only Sleeping’ which will be based around our feelings about death.
Where: 10, Herbal Hill, Central School of Ballet, Clerkenwell Road London. EC1R 5EG. (Circle line), UK
When: 1st and 2nd September 2019. 10 – 5pm and 10 – 6pm respectively
Deadline for applications: 26th August
We welcome dancers of all genders, body types, backgrounds and ages (we are interested to hear from much older artists as well as younger) with strong technique and contact work. For this production, we are particularly looking for artists who can let themselves be vulnerable / emotionally open on stage. We develop the work from improvisation and the artists’ own life experience, so
Day 1 will be class and followed by some contact work. Day 2 will start with contact with an afternoon of improvisation. Following this, around ten artists will be invited to a research workshop (with some payment – tbc) on 4th, 5th, 6th at the same location.
Rehearsals: Approx 8 – 9 month contract: April – August 2020 including Edinburgh Festival.
Touring: September – Dec / Jan. (Tour is booked although funding is to be confirmed at end of Jan 2020)
Fee for rehearsals & tour: Above Equity rate and holiday pay.
