CASTING CALL: FOR DANCERS AND PERFORMERS INTERESTED IN MOVEMENT
Auditions: February 2 and 3, 2012
A visual artist and a choreographer are collaborating to create a performance piece based on chess. We are looking for both men and women who are interested in playing with boundaries and restrictions in movement through costume, space, and abstract boundaries. Thirty-two movers are needed from diverse technical backgrounds to embody the roles of the various chess pieces. Must be a team player due to the large number of people involved. We will rehearse for two weeks, 5 days a week. The performance will take place at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis on February 15.
The artist is looking for both trained and untrained performers.
