Audition for I’m Not Dead, I’m Only Sleeping

Sweetshop Revolution are seeking two to three professional contemporary dancers as well as actors who can move for their new, full-length work, ‘I’m Not Dead, I’m Only Sleeping’ which will be based around our feelings about death.  

We welcome dancers of all genders, body types, backgrounds and ages (we are interested to hear from much older artists as well as younger) with strong technique and contact work. For this production, we are particularly looking for artists who can let themselves be vulnerable / emotionally open on stage. We develop the work from improvisation and the artists’ own life experience, so therefore some experience, either in terms of the end of a relationship or the loss of someone you loved could be helpful. There may be a small amount of nakedness in the final show. 

When: 1st and 2nd September 2019. 10 – 5pm and 10 – 6pm respectively.
Where: 10, Herbal Hill, Central School of Ballet, Clerkenwell Road London. EC1R 5EG. (Circle line)
Please send a head shot, CV and footage of you moving to our producer and confirm your attendance with the word YES. We will then assign you a time for class so that there is not too much waiting around. Day 1 will be class and followed by some contact work. Day 2 will start with contact with an afternoon of improvisation. Following this, around ten artists will be invited to a research workshop (with some payment – tbc) on 4th, 5th, 6th at the same location.
Application Deadline: 26th August.
