Audition for PASEO Dance Performance
September 17, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm UTC+0| Free
Calling all dancers, acrobats, parcour runners, break dancers, gymnasts, & athletes with enquiring minds. This audition is for the upcoming outdoor performance Bodies in Urban Spaces by Austrian artist and choreographer Cie. Willi Dorner.
Bodies in Urban Spaces is a moving trail, scheduled to take place during The PASEO 2016 art festival in Taos, New Mexico on September 23 and September 24.
Bodies in Urban Spaces is choreographed for a group of performers who will lead the audience through a route of public and semi-public spaces. Cie. Willi Dorner will place motionless bodies in spaces that are normally overlooked during the everyday hustle. Unused doorways, niches between buildings and hidden pathways are just a few examples of the barren spaces that a city holds. These are spaces that are normally hidden from the conscious eye. This performance will invite Taoseños to experience their environment from a new perspective.
The performance will take approximately 45 minutes and will require a full week of rehearsals the week between the audition and The PASEO. The rehearsal schedule will be set after participants are selected, most likely September 19-22 at Taos Youth Ballet on 1027 Salazar Road (corner of Canon West).
Now is your chance to be part of the world wide phenomenon. You have the chance to work with an artist who has created work in 80 cities worldwide, Philadelphia, Paris, Helsinki, Chicago and Barcelona. We encourage you to add the participation to your CV or portfolio.
