Audition notice

T a n z t h e a t e r Adrian Look (TAL) is looking for four male dancers/physical performers for their upcoming production,
Fathers and Sons.

Fathers and Sons will be a Tanztheater (Dance Theatre) piece exploring the stories of sons whose fathers left their families during their childhood or teenage years. The 15-20 minute piece will convey the emotional, psychological and practical consequences of the father’s absence for the child (and father) including their struggles, hopes and wishes.

We are ideally looking to represent biographical stories, and hence are initially looking for both younger and older dancers, who belong to one of these groups and are willing to share their true stories:

  • Sons, whose father left during childhood or teenage years
  • Fathers, who left a family behind

We are looking for dancers or physical performers with a strong contemporary technique, contact improvisation skills and the ability to convey an emotional state in a credible way.

Award-winning visual artist and ethnographic researcher Cristobal Catalan will collaborate with TAL on this piece, therefore applicants must be comfortable in front of a camera.

Father and Son will premiere at Resolution Festival at The Place on Friday, 27 Jan 2017.

Details for the audition:

Venue: The Place, London
Date: Sunday 6th Nov 11:00-14:00
(Audition by invitation only)

The main rehearsal period will be in mid- December 2016.
As of now the project will be paid on a profit share basis, but we are looking into funding options. (TBC)

Dancers must have the right to work in the UK.

In the first instance please send your CV, two pictures and a motivation letter explaining your story (no more than 200 words) to:
