Looking for Movers – a DANCE PROJECT
tiger princess dance projects is looking for three performers/movers, senior members of the community who are 60 + for a new project. This call is open to people of all abilities. The first phase of development would be primarily online research and development phase in November 2020. We strongly encourage applications from all diverse backgrounds.
a DANCE PROJECT:
a DANCE PROJECT is inspired by the question of where one’s identity / our own story resides. For example, what if we all had the same map? Would we have the same experience?
Inspired by the poem Where I’m from by George Ellen Lyon, this process and quest of looking back, our perspective and narratives will be explored through movement. Our series of movement and image-based (OSF) workshops will explore the multiplicity of space and place, the factors that shapes our narratives. Using provocative and poetic dance tools to find the form to create a movement theatre that will illuminate this vivacious question of where or in what time space does identity reside?
