Deadline: Call for Dancer/Choreographer – The Museum of Russian Art

February 2

The Museum of Russian Art seeks a dancer/choreographer to create a short work inspired by our upcoming exhibition, Zoran’s Surrealist Sculptures: Dry Neck of the Pig and Other Curios. We are interested in movement as a form of museum interpretation, and we imagine dance as embodied knowledge, offering museum visitors a unique way of experiencing artwork.

We anticipate a two-part process: first, getting to know the exhibition, engaging with the artwork, learning the space, and experimenting with movement. Second, performing the short work (completed or in-process) 2-4 times over the course of the exhibition, which runs from 2/3/2024 through 5/26. Compensation is a flat fee of $400.

Possible themes for exploration might include surrealism, the relationship between humans and nature, environmental care, materiality, power, ecology, sustainability, climate, folklore (we’re sure there are many other possibilities as well!).

Interested dancers should submit a resume and brief statement of interest (a paragraph is great!) to kmckay@tmora.org by February 2, 2024. We encourage submissions from students, emerging choreographers, scholar-practitioners, and those wishing to explore nontraditional dance spaces. Solo artists and/or small ensembles (2-3 dancers) are welcome to submit.
