MAPS for 100 Dancers
Julie Rothschild Movement
What: MAPS: Making and Performing a Solo for 100 Dancers. A New Dance Project by Julie Rothschild
I am making a solo for 100 dancers. 100 dancers who will take this solo and make it their own. The solo will come in 10 video installments (or more). The dancers have complete artistic license to use this material to make their own work. Perhaps this solo will be performed as is, or set on a group, taught in class, or inspiration for something entirely new. This solo is for dancers of all ages and abilities.
Who: 100 Dancers and Sponsors
How: The cost to participate in MAPS is $100 per dancer. Dancers are encouraged to seek Sponsors. Sponsors may support multiple Dancers. And Dancers may seek support from multiple Sponsors. Sponsors may contribute at any level. Dancers in need of Sponsors will be put on a waiting list and matched once a new Sponsor contributes. Dancers and Sponsors will receive access to all 10 videos on a designated VIMEO channel and be invited to a private Facebook group where members can share their ideas, questions and videos. Dancers are under no obligation to share videos or perform.
When: Now. Videos will be released every 3-5 days. I am making the solo in phases. Phase 1 is Gestures and Phrases. Right now I am in Phase 1, generating the vocabulary that I will then extract, edit, assemble. Dancers can jump in any time. All of the video material will be available to participants until February 2016.
For more information and to register, please contact Julie at Julie@julierothschildmovement.com. In your email, please designate whether you would like to be a dancer, a sponsor or a self-sponsored dancer.
From this solo, may there be 100 new dances.
