“Shell Shock O’K” is research dedicated to the topic of post traumatic disorder that manifests in the body due to war and violent events that cause real life threat and danger.

This call is for professional dancers/performers/movers with strong contemporary dance technique, solid knowledge in floor work, partnering and confident experience with improvisation. Profound stage presence and descent performative skills will be considered as additional plus.

I’m looking for curious and passionate artistic individuals, who are eager to commit themselves into the depth of the research process and are not afraid to go beyond their own limits. I appreciate committed, hard-working artists, who are capable of being vulnerable, fragile and exposed to the nerve, movements, emotions and ready to dive into the creative process and discover something new both on personal and professional levels.
