Seeking emerging disabled and non-disabled dance artists for exciting project with choreographer Sarah Blanc

Candoco Dance Company and The Place are supporting Candoco Artist Sarah Blanc to bring together a company of emerging dance artists who wish to work within an inclusive setting. Company members will work together to research and perform a new work in Spring 2017 called Briefer Encounters.

We are looking for 4 dance artists who have extraordinary natural performance style and/or at least 2 years of professional dance training. Applicants must be comfortable improvising. Experience of working with character, text and humour would be desirable but not essential. Dancers must aspire to work at a professional level and push the boundaries of their own abilities.

Sarah Blanc is an award winning choreographer and Artistic Director of Moxie Brawl – a fresh, all-female, inclusive dance theatre company that creates work for outdoors, indoors and places where dance just shouldn’t be.
