The wee dance company of Gerhart-Hauptmann-Theater Görlitz-Zittau is looking for MALE DANCERS for the season 2019/2020 (starting: 29th of August 2019).
Where: GHT Görlitz-Zittau, Demianiplatz 2, 02826 Görlitz, Germany
When: June 3rd & 4th 2019
Deadline for applications: May 26th 2019
We are looking for MALE contemporary dancers with strong technique & improvisational skills for our upcoming season.
Please read the following about our work to ensure you truly believe you could be satisfied working with us:
‣ We don’t conduct ballet training in the morning, but a daily contemporary research session: joining the company means committing yourself to this. If a ballet class is important to you, you’d be unhappy with us.
‣ Our central artistic medium is choreographed dance. We sometimes use other tools too (i.e. improv, text), but it’s important that you can enjoy working mainly with choreographed dance.
‣ You would need to enjoy the skill of consciously assigning movements to precise musical counts, at times counter intuitively. Relying on merely “feeling” the music does not suffice.
‣ In addition to input from our dancers, we require the ability to learn given choreographic material. It’s important that you approach learning material created by others as enriching & enjoyable.
‣ Work here sometimes means stress: a lot must be accomplished in little time. If stress makes you unhappy, working here will make you unhappy. It’s important that you approach stress with a positive attitude as an exciting, enriching element.
‣ In addition to dance pieces, we are obligated to participate in some of the opera & musical productions. We consider this work as important as dance productions.
It’s very rare that dancers have the opportunity to create their own pieces within the official theatre program. We rarely have the time and the capacity for this. Also, personal projects created in the dancers’ spare time can’t be presented within the official theatre program. If you’re looking for a framework to support and promote you as a self-sufficient choreographer, we might not be ideal for you.
