Audition notice for dancers and choreographers.
We are looking for trained dancers, of all genres, to be part of a new multidisciplinary show, Staged, which will take place at the Al Green Theatre on Friday October 12, 2018. We have teamed up with the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation and our goal is to raise $10,000 for cancer research by bringing local artists together for an unforgettable evening of creative performances.
We are accepting choreographic submissions from emerging, mid-career, and professional dancers who have one of the following: a completed work (not yet debuted), work-in-progress, or interest in creating a new work.
Staged will use various art forms to weave together a single story using some of the following themes:
1) Depression 2) Denial 3) Fight/Strength 4) Degeneration (of the body ) 5) Time ( having limited time) 6) Hope.
For the audition, you must choose a theme and prepare a 2 minute excerpt of your work. If your work involves a collaboration (ex.with live musicians, film) please let us know- we encourage creativity through collaboration! Lastly, your final piece must fit the following criteria:
3-5 min. in length.
May be a solo, duet, trio, or group of 4-8 dancers max.
No nudity, explicit/inappropriate content.
High-quality, artistic work which the general public can connect with.

The audition will take place at Dancemakers Center for Creation on Sunday, May 20 from 11:00-1:00pm. You must pre-register for this audition. Please express your interest by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Thursday, May 17 stating which theme you will be auditioning for, the genre of dance, whether the work is new / in progress / completed, and how many dancers are in the piece.
