De Dansers is looking for 2 dancers/performers (professional/trainee) for our 2021 production Drive
In these times when Covid-19 is travelling the world, it is hard to know what to expect from the future. When can we share dance again with each other? When can we meet our audience again with our bodies? We have no certainties, but we have plans for 2021 and we are hopeful to carry them out. This means we are looking for 2 dancers. The auditions are now planned for 2-3 July 2020, but depending on the developments we might reschedule them or adjust them to what is possible at that moment.
For our new production Drive De Dansers is looking for two energetic dancers/performers with stamina, good skills in partnering, a creative personality, physical sensitivity and commitment to work within a team. We are mostly looking for male dancers, but the audition is open to everyone. We often end up with somebody we didn’t expect. So also circus artists, physical performers, dancers with different kinds of dance training and of any gender are welcome to apply. Skilled bodywork and musical sensibility are a must. We also encourage candidates from (culturally) diverse backgrounds to apply.
For Drive we are looking for people that want to explore organic, theatrical ways of moving, collaborating with music and working with voice/singing. Also partnering will have a big focus in this creation. Applicants should be motivated to dance for different kinds of audiences (the piece will also perform for youngsters) and to perform not only in theatres, but also on summer festivals and on location. Drive is a coproduction with Theater Strahl (Berlin, Germany) so part of the creation and performances will take place in Berlin. De Dansers is only looking for dancers who are based in the Netherlands.
