Confident Males Needed for New Company
Seeking all kinds of males. If you are confident, daring, energetic, a quick learner or seeking a challenge this company is looking for you whether you're a dancer or not.
My vision is to promote masculinity in dance to encourage more males to pursue dance from an early age. The first few months will involve classes and development in my own style therefore all dance abilities/backgrounds are welcome. If you have never danced but are showing promise in contact work during these lessons there will be no issues. However you will need to be in good physical shape as the movement style is very demanding.
The first piece we will be working up to creating is based during the greek war. Swords spears and shields will be used throughout the choreography as well as a strong use of film. Costume will will require all dancers to be comfortable performing topless.
My influences in dance come from, contact improvisation, physical theatre, combat, martial arts, acrobatics, parkour, and a variety of contemporary techniques. The movement style will be very physical and daring so being confident and trusting is a must. You will also be required to create material as part of the creation process which will be heavily guided.
I am looking for male dancers to start the company up by meeting and creating material for film and performances that will be used to secure funding. The first few weeks we will be meeting and getting to know one another, as well as going through different styles and athletic type abilities with the emphasis being on contact work.
Throughout this, I will be continuing the process to secure funding. You should not expect to be paid as I cannot guarantee funding. If funding is approved pay will be given for all performances following that date.
This is ideal if you already have career whether it in the arts or not who would like to undertake a dance project which will lead to performance opportunities. Alternately if you have never danced before and would like to start this is a great way to do it.
An audition will be held however this will not be to compete for spaces. This will just be to show you some of the movement style (to ensure you enjoy it) and check you are safe when doing particular moves (such as handstands, rolls, falls, catches, throws etc). It will be very relaxed.
This will start as a non profit company so a small weekly contribution may be required depending on studio hire. However I aim to keep this as low as possible. In order to do this the venue may change over time so travel to different areas in Liverpool/cheshire may be required.
If you're unsure or conflicted come to the audition and see if you enjoy all the challenging material we will be working on.
