Call for Performers: Julien Prévieux

-Submission deadline extended until September 2nd-

ATTENTION: DANCERS, MOVEMENT-BASED PERFORMERS & MOVEMENT PRACTITIONERS
CALL FOR PERFORMERS

Julien Prévieux, What Shall We Do Next? (Sequence #2) (video still), 2014. HD Video.
Blackwood Gallery at the University of Toronto Mississauga is looking for 3 dancers or movers to participate in an upcoming performance by award-winning, Paris-based artist Julien Prévieux. We are looking for a group of movers to work directly with the artist and Blackwood Gallery for this production, which will premiere January 18 ­­–19, 2017. Rehearsals are scheduled approximately 10 days before the performance dates.

Prévieux’s project, What Shall We Do Next?, uses movement to explore a series of paradoxes in our over-technologized and copyrighted world. What Shall We Do Next? asks: why do we move the way we do? Who owns and directs our gestures? How will the movements we use to interact with technology steer the way we move in the future? Reflecting on technology and its impact on human behaviour, the artist appropriates gestures and abstracts them from their utilitarian function. The result is a performance that questions technology’s use-function by exploring the poetic potential of movement.

To express your interest in auditioning for the project, please submit the following by AUGUST 26, 2016 to blackwood.gallery@utoronto.ca:
- An expression of interest*
- Headshot
- Full-body shot
- 2-3 minute demo reel
- CV

Successful applicants will be contacted with audition dates, times, & requirements. Auditions will take place September 19 & 20, 2016.

*Please familiarize yourself with the artist’s work:
