Come experience Co-Artistic Director Christin Call’s artistic process for the creation of interdisciplinary performance work and the Coriolis company’s Postballet Technique. In this workshop/audition you will use classical vocabulary as a base language from which to draw out rich, embodied, and articulated movement experiences that are central to the Coriolis style. You will also play with sensation, breath, writing, and improvisation to experiment with group consent, character generation, and movement-based narratives.
It is not required to audition to attend this workshop, however Christin is casting for a new performance installation screening event, presented by Northwest Film Forum in July 2018 called What is Home an Obscure Kingdom an Opera Buffa It’s You Always You.
Core group of five classically-trained dancers interested in or having experience with experimental approaches that include vocalization, speaking, theatricality, and image/sensation-based movement.
The right dancers will have the following qualities:
*** strong ballet technique AND a sense of being outside the “ballet box,” be it physically, culturally, ethnically, ideologically, kinetically
*** willingness to experiment
*** compassion for your peers
*** respect for call times, punctuality, and timely correspondence
*** an embodied movement practice (e.g. ballet, gaga, yoga, hip-hop. If hired you will be required to keep up your practice outside of rehearsals at least twice a week for the duration of your contract.)
*** an interest in Christin’s artistic voice and in the subject matter of the work
The core five will receive $12/hr. for rehearsals and a performance stipend.
Must be available:
*** Performance dates: JUL 26-28, 2018
*** Tech week: JUL 20-25, 2018
*** Rehearsal times: 2x/wk.for 4 hours
Rehearsals will be ongoing until performance with a few, planned exceptions.
ABOUT WHAT IS HOME
At the heart of this work is the question: what is belonging? The complicated response each of us has to this question is both intuitive and pragmatic, psychological and highly environmental. What happens when our homes, both the inner kingdom and the physical structure, are taken away? Living in a city that seems to be gorging itself and swallowing its citizens in the process, this work will create a scenario in which it may be possible for us to feel like a community.
