'Creative Space 2018' Solo Male Dancer Audition

2018.6.15

 

Presented by Dance Alliance, 'Creative Space 2018' is a residency programme targeting local mid-career choreographers. Participating artists will join regular workshops, technique classes and rehearse for the new work. The new work will be premiered in January 2019 at Ko Shan Theatre New Wing Auditorium.

One of the choreographers – Chen Kai is now looking for a Male Dancer! If you are a professionally trained ballet and contemporary dancer, and are interested in the production, please apply on or before 1 July!

'Creative Space 2018'
Rehearsal Period: 8/2018 – 1/2019
Performance Period: 11-12/1/2019
Performance Venue: Ko Shan Theatre New Wing Auditorium

About the Choreography
Choreographer: Chen Kai
Work length: Around 30 mins 


-- An adventurous attempt to be an equilibrium in a suspended position
It will be a solo contemporary dance work. Restricting within a suspended-position on the footprint, Chen Kai tries to apply linear movement to visualize the bodily limitation of trace-points in Kinesphere, and to free the imagination of extension-points in sphere, which symbolically comes along with a metal round object, to shape a space.


About Classifiable Movement 
Chen Kai has founded the Classifiable Movement to put his ‘Classifiable Movement’ theory into practice and visualize the concept of ‘let the movement speak for itself’. His logic thinking pattern cultivates the rational side of the dance and shapes multi-layers of movement analysis. 
He created his choreographic method of ‘Classifiable Movement’, which has been categorizing movements according to their features, namely linear, turning, twist, flex and rolling, etc. Focusing on merely one feature each time, a series of pieces has been developed - Line, Circle, Line and Aureola, Sweep (overture), Twist, Flex, Circle II, Line II, Sweep, Movement with Fan and so on. 


Audition Details
Time and Date: 8/7 (Sun) 10-1pm
Venue: HKAPA Studio 3
*Invited applicants will have to prepare a Solo of no shorter than 2 mins, based on his interpretation about Linear Movement during the audition.

Application Form: https://goo.gl/mEMKg6 
Deadline: 1/7 (日Sun)
Interested parties please submit the Online Application Form with the following details: 
1) Personal Contact, 2) CV, 3) Full body shot, 4) Solo dance video.

Dancer Requirements:
1. Applicants must be 18 years old or above by the start of the programme.
2. To fit the theme of the work, applicants must have strong professional background of contemporary dance and ballet.
3. Male dancer who has possessed professional contemporary or ballet training.
4. Applicants must be able to work according to the rehearsal and performance schedule.

Professionally trained in Australia and UK and with Master’s degrees in Dance and Education Studies from Universities of Surrey and Sheffield, respectively, Chan was Hong Kong Dance Alliance researcher and authored the 2004 Hong Kong Dance Award winning book Intelligent Moves: Dance Education advocating dance education as means for students to achieve full learning potential.

Since she has been with WKCDA she has changed the way the dance community and audiences experience the art form, raising the bar in terms of skills, expectations, scope, and engagement.
