Curated by Faena Art
Faena Art is seeking adult dancers of all ages (especially 40+) for an experimental project by Isabel Lewis performed on December 3 and December 4 at Faena Forum as part of the inaugural Faena Festival.
Lewis is interested in classically trained dancers and contemporary dancers with performance experience who feel confident improvising during live performance.
Strong technical foundation is appreciated but more importantly, we seek dancers who have a willingness to explore non-traditional (though highly structured) composition and who possess a grounded energetic presence, fluidity, calm, and nuance in their movement quality as well as the capacity to be explosive and precise within subtle and small movements. Dancers who feel comfortable utilizing the voice also a plus.
Rehearsal period will take place between November 26 – December 2 with two performances on December 3 and at least one on December 4. This job is paid.
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a picture of yourself, a CV, and a 2 minute video in two parts:
- 1 minute: introduce yourself and answer this question: “Which forms of engagement contribute to living a good and flourishing life today?”
- 1 minute: dancing to a favorite song as though you were dancing for yourself alone in a private space.
Videos can be filmed simply on mobile phone or eyesight camera. Please no extra production. Please note that large video files or videos longer than 2 and a half minutes will not be considered.
When: Online via Skype – pending dancer availability – Faena Art will reach out if you have been selected for Casting
