Kathleen Kelley seeks powerful female performers for new company
Choreographer Kathleen Kelley, artistic director of a new intermedia performance company launching in August 2016, is seeking 5-6 performers to join in the development of a new work to premiere in January 2017. We are seeking a diverse group of powerful, dynamic, and rhythmic female performers that are highly experienced in improvisation. Kelley's studio environment values collaboration, individuality, and a rigorous but playful approach to creating movement, and performers must be willing to experiment.
Dancers must be available for rehearsals Mondays and Fridays from 9am-1pm from July-January and must be available for the premiere of the work the week of January 9th-13th, 2017. Performers will be paid a rehearsal stipend and performance pay.
To apply to audition, please fill out the following registration form by July 13th: http://goo.gl/forms/KKY3WhGKbVtteAGg1
Invited dancers will be notified within 48 hours of submission of form.
Audition is 9am-12pm on Friday July 15th at Triskelion Arts Center, 106 Cayler Street in Brooklyn.
