Audition for Live @ The Shed 2021 - April 30

Choreographers Berit Ahlgren and Helen Hatch seek dancers for a new ensemble work that will premiere at the second annual Live @ The Shed, taking place August 6-8, 2021.

Professional dancers of all ages, backgrounds, and experiences are encouraged to apply. Applicants will be asked to improvise, as well as learn phrase work. We are looking for individuals who are creative, collaborative, and expressive. Live @ The Shed also supports work-in-progress by cast members. Opportunities for dancers in the project to share their own work will be encouraged as part of the final performances.

Audition: May 2, 2021, 12:00pm-4:00pm at Saint Paul Ballet. Time slots will be assigned following registration and confirmed through email by Friday, April 30. If you are unable to audition in person, you may submit a short video (under 5 minutes) in your registration form. Please include improvisation as well as performance footage.

Rehearsals will begin in May (full schedule sent as part of agreement), and will include optional class before scheduled rehearsal times.

Performance Dates: August 6-8, 2021. Five performances. We will be following the CDC guidelines at the time of the performances in regards to mask requirements, social distancing and audience caps.

Compensation: $800
