Choreographed by Artistic Director Davida Rae, ChoreoNova is very excited to invite dancers to join us for two touring performances (in Pittsburgh, PA and Silver Springs, MD) and shoot (Richmond, VA) “The Freudian Psyche,” a challenging, contemporary, contact-improvisation-based work.

Where: The Fillmore, Silver Springs, MD, U.S. and Bricolage’s Theater, Pittsburgh, PA, U.S.

When: August, possibly through first week of September

Deadline for applications: September 1st, however, applications are treated on a first-come-first-served basis

ChoreoNova is a professional, award-winning contemporary dance and dance film company. We use contemporary dance works and programs to empower people. We perform regionally and produce innovative multidisciplinary and traditional works. Because of incredibly talented dancers like you, we have been able to produce dance that makes people feel.

Are you the kind of dancer who can make audiences live and breathe with them? Do you relish a challenge? Yes? Then we look forward to hearing from you!

We are looking for two dancers like you for “The Freudian Psyche” for touring performances and a possible dance film shoot. “Psyche” depicts the war for the human soul between the Id, Ego, and Superego until reaching maturity. The work has been developed via contact improvisation and is partially complete.

All body types you may have are welcome!

All races and ethnicities you may be are welcome!

You must have partnering and improvisation experience.

You will receive professional film for your reel. Future paid work will be available. You and us should start a relationship!

“Psyche” is NOT a full-time contract and does NOT include relocation or travel assistance to the U.S., except between rehearsals in VA and performances elsewhere. However, if you are looking for a reason to come to the U.S., this could be right for you.

Rehearsals will be in Charlottesville, Locust Grove, and/or Richmond, VA for two-three weeks starting early or mid-August and may extend into first week of September. Performances August 21 in Maryland at The Fillmore and August 31 at Bricolage’s Theater in Pittsburgh. Possible show in VA, too. Schedule will be intense with 8 hour rehearsals and some long rides to studios. Shared accommodations provided – sofa bed and two rollaway beds in common area. Full kitchen and laundry, good wifi.

Thanks everyone!
