Open Call for Male Dancers: “S_HE IS SEA” Production

She/he lets herself/himself be carried in the currents of the sea, which invisibly and immaterially wash through the body, swirl it around in whirlpools and let it drift. Unconsciously and uncontrollably, the body adapts to the subtlest movements of the water, realigns itself, lets go and surrenders to the multitude of directions and eddies of the current.
“S_HE IS SEA Etude” ties into the research interest of overlapping, shifting rhythms and explores a newly emerging polyrhythmic and dynamic space that follows its own laws. It is a complex exploration of the musical piece Canto Ostinato by Dutch composer Simeon Ten Holt, which, due to its specific musical structure, allows dance movements to overlap and shift in a particular way. Different rhythms are thrown into a supposed “chaos” and follow, like currents and whirlpools of the sea, a complex interplay.

Made possible by the residency programme of the Réseau GRAND LUXE network (Onassis Stegi Athen, POLE SUD Strasbourg, Theater Freiburg, TROIS C_L Luxembourg and L’Abri Geneva.) and the special support of the Dance Department of Theater
Freiburg. “S_HE IS SEA” is a co-production with the Theater Freiburg and the E-Werk Freiburg.


Apply for the get-to-know workshop till 20.10.2023 by sending an email with a video link to an improvisation (max 3 min, no video files please), a CV including a photo and a short letter of motivation (max 250 words or 2000 characters) to info@shibuicollective.com
