Got designs on working with two of the city’s major choreographic talents? Well, Wednesday May 20 is your lucky day. Holding a joint audition for two separate projects are just-announced 2009 CDF Lab Artist Julia Rae Antonick and 2008 Lab Artist/Khecari AD Jonathan Meyer.
Both are opportunties for the immediate future: Meyer is looking for 6-8 dancers for a pair of showings next month as part of his Lacunae (they’re scheduled for the first two Sundays in June, with rehearsals beginning May 24), while Antonick’s rehearsals will begin May 26 for a pair of performances of PEND that weekend (see this month’s column below).
Selected dancers will be part of PEND’s Armgarden. In this lowdown liquid improvisation we will dive into deep attention to impulse and sensory response, performing the role of the oceanic audience and performative landscape. From one moment to the next we will shift from riding the wave of someone’s impulse across space, to floating a limb in sympathy with those around us, to simply being reclining audience members. Armgarden is open to movers of various backgrounds, preferably with some improv experience.
The audition day will have two periods, 11am-1pm and 4-6:30pm; attendees may request consideration for one or both pieces. More information is available on Facebook, or just jump right on it and RSVP to grant (dot) suzy (at) gmail (dot) com to secure a spot. Nothing is required for the audition except readiness, openness and proper attire, and it will be held at Silverspace in Wicker Park. Good luck!
