Where: Online

When: June 2020

Deadline for applications: June 1, 2020

The Danielle Georgiou Dance Group is seeking participants to contribute videos of themselves performing their own version of “The Dance Party” scene from “The Savage Seconds.” Submitted videos will be included in the World Premiere of the experimental dance film, “The Savage Seconds” set to air June 4-June 10, 2020 online.

More Information:
Make your own version of “The Dance Party” from THE SAVAGES SECONDS with our tutorial! All you need is yourself and the desire to dance! As one of the scenes in our World Premiere dance opera film, DGDG and the cast of “The Savage Seconds” are creating an EPIC DANCE PARTY that extends past the physical into the digital—a quarantine dance party if you will—and we want to invite you all to join us!

At the following link, https://youtu.be/ty2fghAiZJg, or on the @dgdgdancegroup IGTV, you will find a short tutorial video in which Danielle Georgiou and Colby Calhoun explain and demonstrate the individual movements in this scene. This allows everyone to work on their own free interpretation: in a different setting, with your children, with your roommate, or alone, with the music on the video track or with any other music…anything is possible!

Send us your videos by June 1, 2020 to be included in the film that will be streamed online June 4-June 10.

To submit, send your video files via WeTransfer to dgdgdancegroup@gmail.com
Please include: Your name as you wish it to appear; Where you are quarantined.

Free for participants.

About the Danielle Georgiou Dance Group:
The Danielle Georgiou Dance Group is a dance theatre company that works within the ideas of contemporary dance and physical theatre. Each production is created using an ensemble-based method to devise concepts and choreographic ideas under the direction of Artistic Director/Choreographer Danielle Georgiou. DGDG is dedicated to crafting and curating creative dance and theatre works that explore human and social conditions. DGDG educates the public on the power of the art of dance and theatre, and provides audiences with a multicultural experience. Whether collaborating or defining their work, DGDG looks for performers who constantly strive to transform themselves, either in image or skill. As Georgiou says, “Technique is your foundation; not your identity.”

The Danielle Georgiou Dance Group was selected as Best Dance Troupe by the Dallas Observer for 2017 and 2015, and Best Dance Company for 2016 by the readers of D Magazine. The Show About Men (2015) was named Best New Play or Musical and cited for Outstanding Creative Contribution for Choreography by the Dallas Fort Worth Theater Critics Forum Awards. NICE (2014), which premiered at the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre for the AT&T Performing Arts Center’s Elevator Project, also won for Choreography.

Danielle Georgiou (Artistic Director/Choreographer) and Justin Locklear (Producer/Conceptual Artist) both teach master classes and workshops in their individual and combined pedagogies, which are based on physical theatre, contemporary dance, and Viewpoints. They also both have rich performance and directing careers as freelance artists, and bring those experiences back to DGDG to create their unique take on contemporary dance theatre.
