DanceAction is looking for DANCERS for immersive dance project
Company: Carmen Caceres DanceAction
Location: New York, NY
Compensation: Paid Rehearsals & Performance Compensation
Who we are?
DanceAction is a contemporary dance company based in New York, led by Argentinian choreographer Carmen Caceres. Our culturally diverse team is comprised of artists from several disciplines such as dance, music, drama, media, and visual arts. Together we create dance works that reflect social realities that concern people, relationships, and social justice. Our primary purpose is to interpret these issues and use our works to propel change.
We are currently seeking one dancer to join the company for the performance of our new project BLINDSPOT, in the spring of 2020 (April 3 & 4, 2020). The role requires prior experience in contemporary dance and partnering work, strong musicality, dance improvisation skills, the ability to learn quickly and execute long and complex movement combinations, and the interest of working in a collaborative environment.
Auditions will be held in New York City as rehearsals by invitation only, on selected days (Monday, Tuesday, and/or Friday) on the week of December 16, in the evening, between 5 and 9pm. The venue, dates, and times will be confirmed upon registration.
Rehearsals for this project will resume in January 2020. These will take place on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and/or Fridays, twice or three times a week for a period of 2 to 3 hours each, between 5 and 9pm. Rehearsals and Performances will be compensated.
Based on George Orwell’s classic novel 1984, BLINDSPOT is a live dance and multimedia piece. In this work, the slogan of the party, “War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength,” is translated into a movement narrative that includes live music and media projections to create an immersive multimedia experience for the audience.
In order to be invited to the rehearsal/audition, applicants should register via email, submitting a resume, head shot, video sample, and a letter of interest. Please indicate if you have any conflict with the dates and times mentioned above, we would like to accommodate as many people as possible. To send your materials or for more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline to submit your materials: Sunday, December 15, 2019.
*Participants must be 18 years old or older.
