Audition: male dancers – Lloyd Newson project

Jane Joyce

Lloyd Newson has pushed the boundaries of what dance can be, and say, for more than 30 years. His working methods focus on the connection between meaning and movement.

Newson is currently seeking exceptional male dancers to recreate Enter Achilles. Rehearsals commence November 2019 and the production tours internationally from 2020.

The project will be co-produced by DV8 Physical TheatreRambert and Sadler’s Wells Theatre.

They are looking for a broad range of applicants, with different ages and looks. Applicants should be fluent in English, have acting skills and the ability to deliver text convincingly. It is an advantage if you can do a British accent.

You should have strong contemporary dance technique, and be more interested in understanding the intricacies of body language than reproducing abstract dance phrases.

They are also looking for performers with experience in aerial rope/corde lisse. If this is you, please include a link to video of you demonstrating these skills as part of your audition registration.

Applicants must be available for a two-week workshop period (paid) in July 2018.
