Porch View Dances Is Looking For Choreographers!
Kaeja d’Dance is looking for Choreographers to create new work for Porch View Dances in one of two possible formats:
1) Porch Dance. An 8 – 9 minute dance piece created in collaboration with non-professional, community performers (often a family or group of friends). This piece will aim to reflect the personal stories and movement vocabularies of the participants, and will be performed on the porch or front yard of their own home. Choreographers must have experience and/or a strong interest in community arts engagement, and will be required to spend a minimum of 20 hours in creation/rehearsal with their community performers.
2) Vignette Dance. A series of three related 3-minute dance pieces performed by professional dancers (chosen and hired by the choreographer). These site-specific works will be performed as transition pieces between Porch Dances at various locations along the route, and will be witnessed as “walk-by” or brief “stop-and-watch” pieces (one or two of each type). Duets or group work is preferred.
(*PLS NOTE: Neither of these works should have an audience participation component.)
Choreographers MUST be available for ALL meeting, workshop, rehearsal and performance dates listed below. This is a paid position.
