please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot and ask questions ***SPACE IS LIMITED - PLEASE RSVP EARLY*** Khecari artistic directors Julia Rae Antonick and Jonathan Meyer are looking for dancers with an interest in our work. This audition will be structured as a free workshop; we will not be making cuts during the workshop. While we are always seeking dancers for future projects, we do not anticipate making any decisions immediately following this audition. Any dancers eventually hired for projects would be paid; we have a philosophy of equal pay for everyone and currently offer $15/hour. If you have been to a previous audition, or you know that we are familiar with your work, or you have danced for us in the past, we still encourage you to come as a way of expressing interest in working with Khecari. Dancers are also welcome to come to the audition simply as a free workshop. We have a somatically grounded approach to dance, a strong interest in improvisation, a penchant for highly kinetic movement and intricate partnering work and an practice of project based investigation and research. Because of the nature of our work, we want to work with dancers who love to roll up their sleeves – whether that means working hard as a dancer in the studio or being game to mop the floor of a dusty old warehouse as part of rehearsal duties. We ask a wide range from pedestrian or simple movement that may feel easy as a technician but is integral to the work, to execution of dance material that is explosive, athletic, and technically challenging. We are excited to work with artists who are interested in the audience’s larger experience, not just the movement phrases. Our ideal collaborators are enthusiastic, selfless, self-aware, and self caring, good communicators and supportive of fellow collaborators. We love to work with people who are continually motivated to fine-tuning, digging deeper, finding solutions, and working independently while simultaneously taking direction eagerly.
