Expressions of Interest Now CLOSED

X is the intersection of collaboration through Dance and Music improvisation. At the outset of each live streamed performance the Dance and Music are both unknown and independent of each other – created through rules of chance

X is a paid opportunity:
Fee: $600 (plus Super)
per event for each participating dancer.

Each artist will enter into an agreement with Dance Hub SA

This is X

A catalyst for performance that chooses the unknown by working in real-time and improvising together in creative / artistic exchange.

Eligibility:

There are up to 12 positions open in each event
for dancers.

Dancers need to be based in South Australia or if currently based outside of South Australia, need to have a track record of performing in South Australia and be in situ on the production week dates.

 

Performance Dates:

August 15 2021
October 10 2021
February 20 2022
May 15 2022.

It is estimated that each event will
require a time commitment
of approximately 5-6 hours
on the performance day plus
up to 5-hours during the production week.


All four (4) iterations of X will be livestreamed

via the Dance Hub SA  Facebook page.
Each iteration will be 60 – 90 minute in duration.

X is a performed improvised event and the breeding ground of Dance and Music experimentation extending the lineage of luminaries Merce Cunningham and John Cage using chance and randomness as creative tools.

Each event is facilitated by our Artistic Director, Amanda Phillips (Dance) & Alexander Waite Mitchell (Music) – who share a prolific body of transdisciplinary and interactive work.
They are also participating artists within each event.

Each event includes the interchangeable/rotating participation of a team of choreographer-directors,
sonic creators /composer-musicians and dancers
