Audition for dancers
professional and interns
Funny Soft Happy & the Opposite
New creation Connor Schumacher
On October 27th & 28th 2018 Connor Schumacher will be holding an audition in Rotterdam looking for 3 professional dancers and 2 interns for a creation of an evening length performance premiering in the fall of 2019.
Connor is looking for as a diverse a cast as possible. He is looking for dedicated performers who are ready to dive into a movement practice he refers to as High Intensity Metaphors. This practice is about the stamina of expression, physicality and precision of imagery. He will be working from an improvisational method towards a choreographed structure, so he is looking for creators and team players who can reflect and communicate in a balanced way about their own behavior & how they are experiencing the work.
Diversity is key to this casting. Every body and style of movement is welcome to apply but it should be noted that the life of this work will be intense, and the body and mind will need stamina to survive. Connor will provide the appropriate working structure with this high level in mind. This will not be for the feint of heart.
