Modern Dance Center – Dortmund are currently looking for two princes for our Nutcracker-production.

Where: Dortmund, Germany

The rehearsal starts on 26.October 2018. The performance will be in the week from 24. November until 2. December.

Deadline for applications: 13. October 2018

This is a choreography by Felicitas Binder of the “Deutsche Oper Berlin” and since 2009, the production has been a fixed cultural component of the pre-Christmas season in Dortmund. The performances are sponsored by the Cultural Office (Kulturamt) of Dortmund Municipality.We always cast the demanding role of the prince with a (semi) professional dancer.
As we are planning to have four performances and would like to cast the role of the prince double, we would need two dancers. This way, both will have the opportunity to take on two performances – with adequate compensation for the rehearsals and performances, of course.

The performances as such take 60 minutes respectively. The schedule looks as follows:

Cast A

General rehearsal: 24 November 2018 (the exact timings can still be coordinated)
Performance 1: 27. November 2018, 11.00 a.m.
Performance 2: 01. December 2018, 03.00 p.m.

Cast B

General rehearsal: 25 November 2018 (the exact timings can still be coordi-nated)
Performance 1: 30. November 2018, 11.00 a.m.
Performance 2: 02. December 2018, 03.00 p.m.

We are planning to have one performance in cooperation with Primary Schools in Dortmund and one regular performance per dancer. Rehearsals take place in-house at the Modern Dance Center, general rehearsals and performances take place at the “Theater am Ostwall” in Dortmund.

Rehearsals for “The Nutcracker” have started already. For that reason, it would be nice if the dancers who are going to dance the prince could join the team as soon as possible. We will be happy to coordinate the rehearsal dates with the schedules of the dancers.
