For the preparation of the new work with the working title “AlieNation” within the trilogy “ZEIT/GEIST” by choreographer Eva Baumann, ZEIT/GEIST is looking for versatile dancers and performers of all genders to take part in an initial one week development process in Berlin at DOCK 11.
In ZEIT/GEIST, Eva Baumann and her artistic team are dealing with the themes of past and present refugee experiences, silence/stillness in a fast paced society and the dystopia of a disembodied society of the future. The trilogy is to be developed into a production in each of the years 2022-2024. Although thematically distinct and likely to have different aesthetics in their realisation, all three projects have to do with the awareness of time, history and how we deal with it.
For the research lab that will take place between November 29th and December 12th, 2021 (in total one week) ZEIT/GEIST will focus on the concept of “alienation”. It will be a movement research based laboratory that is intended to set the ground for an evening length performance to be produced in 2022.
The research lab is a paid opportunity that is being funded by npn/joint adventure in the frame of the NEUSTART KULTUR program Stepping Out. Dancers that are not based in Berlin are welcome to apply however the company has a limited budget to cover travel expenses. Unfortunately accommodation costs cannot be covered.
Instead of an audition the selection will take place through the material you send and two Zoom meetings on October 30th or 31st and November 6th or 7th.
The research lab will take place within the safety measurements of the current COVID-19 guidelines and are subject of change.
How to apply / register: ZEIT/GEIST is looking for dancers/performers that are curious movement researchers with a strong physicality that are used to work with task based improvisation/composition. Working language is English (possibly also German). Please send us by October 17th, 2021:
- A CV (max. 2 pages)
- A short statement why you are interested or naming previous artistic projects with similar topics
- 2-3 Video links of recent work that give us an impression of your dancing
