Joon Dance is seeking 2 or 3 experienced dance artists to join them for the upcoming research and development of Tongues.
Tongues will be a performance made with and for young people aged 14-21 exploring language, identity and relationships through dance and spoken word. There will be a collaborative research week with the artistic director Zosia Jo, the professional dance team, spoken word artist Rufus Mufasa, and composer Christopher Young. Following that we work intensively with the young people. The idea is to create a performance that shifts and changes depending on context.
We need a cast of strong professional performers with diverse backgrounds and identities. You must have significant training in… contemporary dance technique; experience in urban dance styles is a bonus. You must have experience in / enthusiasm for working with young people and a clear DBS certificate. You must be comfortable using text and be an excellent improviser.
The work will take place in Wales and the period is between July 31st and August 31st with potential future touring.
All members of Joon Dance are paid equally including management and all artistic staff. Each member of the team will be paid £500 per week for their work plus expenses.
