CALL FOR DANCERS
Fashion designer Jason Lingard is looking for contemporary dancers to perform in an intimate performance showcasing his Spring Summer 2017 collection. We are looking for approximately six dancers (male or female) to perform an interpretive piece set to a soundscape designed by sound artist Emi Pogoni.
The piece will be dark, slow and atmospheric and will require movement to suit. Dancers will be given the sound piece a few weeks prior to show day. The presentation will be made up of short solos and duos, with quick costume changes in between pieces. The show will run seamlessly.
The event is not ticketed and is a private event for fashion buyers, media, and guests who are in town for NZ Fashion Week.
Date: Thursday 31th August 2017.
Time: Midday. Keep all morning free.
Venue: Basement Theatre, Lower Greys Avenue, Auckland.
Sound Designer: Emi Pogoni: www.emipogoni.com
Clothing: Jason Lingard: www.jasonlingard.com
Rehearsals: One evening prior to the show, off site. Then one run-through the morning
of the show at Basement Theatre.
Compensation: $100 plus up to $300 clothing credit. We understand the fee
is low, but we are a young emerging brand and our budget is small as the event is
not ticketed. We appreciate your support and hope you enjoy artistic collaborations
such as this. Full credit will be given in the programme, including a bio.
Please only audition if you can commit to the above.
Auditions will be held over two nights in early August. We will supply a 2min sound piece prior to the audition. We ask that dancers are close to fashion sample size (Size 8 or 10 for females. Small or Medium for males.)
