Dance Base Spring 2017 Showcase Participant Callout - In Partnership: Being and moving together. Join Room 2 Manoeuvre's Artistic Director, Tony Mills, for a research project exploring partnering in dance. The research will focus on discovering and refining processes and techniques that allow us to dance both in and out of contact, to partner from the ground to the air and work in duos to larger groups.
Tony will offer insights into R2Ms own practice and processes as a starting point. However, this week is foremost a platform to encourage dialogue, exchange and collaboration amongst each participating artist with a view to discovering new territories in the realm of partnering and moving together. The results of these investigations will be composed into a short performance, presented at the end of the week.
For this research, Tony would like to work with professional dancers and dance students in their final year. Participants can expect to fall, fly, lift and catch and thus, should be in reasonable physical condition to take part.
The project will take place from the Monday 20 - Friday 24 February at Dance Base, 14-16 Grassmarket, Edinburgh, EH1 2JU with a public performance of the work on Saturday 25 February at 20:00. All participants must be available for the full duration of this project.
The project is FREE of charge and is part of Dance Base's continued Professional Development Programme.
Interested applicants must submit a CV and personal statement outlining why you would like to take part in the project to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline for interest is 11.00 on Monday 16 January, and responses will be sent out by 20 January.
