Job Description

Summit Dance Theatre/Alison Curtis-Jones is looking for 4 strong, dynamic, contemporary male/female professional dancers to join the company for performance of two re-imagined works, “Drumstick” and “Nacht”, at Bonnie Bird Theatre, London, Thursday 21 November 2019.

Summit Dance Theatre and choreographer Alison Curtis-Jones give two works by Rudolf Laban a contemporary twist and new lease of life. Drawing from Laban’s principles and archeo-choreological research, Curtis-Jones reimagines Laban’s work to create a new living archive.

Drumstick, the rhythm of the body made audible, sees Summit dancers determine rhythmic phrasing of movement live on stage with musicians composing the sound score real time, in response to what they see. Nacht is a political satire depicting the underbelly of Berlin’s Weimar period and the love of dollars, deceit and depravity.

Dancers for this project are required to learn and embody the repertoire and contribute to improvisation live on stage.

Dancers should be available for the following rehearsal dates:

Saturday 28 September 9.00-6.30pm /Sunday 29 September, 9.30am-4.00pm

Saturday 5 October 9.00am-6.30pm / Sunday 6 October, 9.30-4.00pm
