December 2017–January 2018

      For new work M/OTHERS

      Nataša Petrešin-Bachelez, Eszter Salamon
    2. If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution is looking for a mother and daughter to perform in a new duet by choreographer Eszter Salamon, which is being developed alongside Nataša Petrešin-Bachelez research project on Delphine Seyrig.

      Both the mother and daughter need to have experience in performance (be it dance, theatre or film) and be confident with learning text for recital. The text for the performance will be developed with Eszter Salamon through interviews with the performers; so interested performers should be willing to share their biography and interested in exploring performance through this frame. The work will be performed in English. The mother and daughter should also be over the age of 20, and each based somewhere in Europe.

      The work will be developed with Eszter across a period of interviews, conversations and rehearsals in 2018, and will be presented by If I Can’t Dance in Amsterdam at the end of 2018, and at a number of other venues in Europe across 2019. Exact dates and remuneration will be discussed with shortlisted candidates.

      At present we are looking for expressions of interests from mothers and daughters who would be interested to be considered for this role, and who would be available to make a time to meet the artist at the end of January 2018.

      If you are, please forward a brief introduction and a photo to Susan Gibb at sg@ificantdance.org by 3 January 2018.   

      Please feel free to contact us if you have any other questions or require further information about this opportunity.
