Audition for Lucky Shots
17/05/16

Cie. Woest is looking for dancers and acrobats with a strong contemporary dance base for a new performance: professionals and a stagiaire.

This summer 2016 Cie. Woest will create the new site specific performance Lucky Shots, in which we will research the concept of weightlessness. It will be a research in failing and achieving almost impossible physical challenges.

It will be a physical challenging process, a game between gravity and the body. Our approach for this work will consist of lots of partner work, therefore we are looking for physical strong dancers/acrobats who like working on location. After a three week rehearsal process we will present a first draft at the Spoffin festival in the end of August. In the spring of 2017 we will remount Lucky Shots and present it at at least 6 festivals.


Because of the special conditions of working on location we are looking for performers who:
• are interested in working on location                                          • are open-minded.
• are physically strong and have good stamina / overall fitness
• are prepared for the unpredictable conditions of nature / weather                                                                                                • who have affinity with the visual dance theater of Woest.
