WORKSHOP & AUDITION FOR ORIGINAL PERFORMANCE
GiBa moves / Gina Bashour
Choreographer, Dancer & Educator
Seeking male and female professional dancers for an original outdoor performance. Must have strong contact/partnering skills, improvisation skills and excellent contemporary dance technique. Looking for dynamic performers comfortable in a collaborative environment with openness to work and perform outdoors.
The workshop will include improvisation work based on principles of movement analysis formulated by Rudolf Laban where we will learn to use space in a more intentional way and open new creative channels. We will use a “quick learn” composition technique designed to generate material unique to each dancer. Dancers will have an opportunity to demonstrate their talent by translating original movement into their own bodies.
Paid rehearsals and performances held in Great Barrington and West Stockbridge, MA beginning in May 2018. Performance dates end of August 2018. Must be available for weekend rehearsals.
Audition: May 5, 2018 12:30-5:30pm (arrive at 12pm)
325 Stockbridge Road, Great Barrington
Be prepared to stay until 5:30pm.
