Call: Habitat / Amsterdam
PERFORMERS WANTED FOR THE INTERNATIONAL DANCE PRODUCTION HABITAT/AMSTERDAM
No experience necessary!
Frascati, alongside choreographer Doris Uhlich, are looking for 40 local performers (both amateurs and professionals) for the Dutch version of high-profile dance production HABITAT/AMSTERDAM. As an ode to the body, beyond all common ideals of beauty and conventional ideas about body image, HABITAT showcases the naked body in all its strength and vulnerability.
We are searching for people of all ages (18+) and all backgrounds – dance experience is not a requirement. We are interested in a wide variety of genders and skills. All bodies are welcome!
The series HABITAT is Doris Uhlich’s largest group choreography and naked dance rave to date. On electronic sounds and techno tracks, performed by a live DJ, the performers celebrate their unity and diversity. As individuals and as a crowd, they simultaneously conquer the space in a performance that is compelling, highly energetic, and at times collectively at rest. HABITAT transcends conventional ideas about the body, dance and nudity in a subversive way. It goes beyond conventional beauty ideals. HABITAT is a utopian hymn and celebration of every body.
The work of renowned choreographer Doris Uhlich (Austria) has been showcased at leading international stages and festivals. In the Netherlands, she has performed at: Julidans, Spring Festival and Frascati. She has won several awards in recent years, working with a focus on the naked body, striving to connect individuals with great diversity. For more information visit: https://dorisuhlich.at/en
