For the opening of Birmingham International Dance Festival on 2 June 2018, we have commissioned German choreographer Stephanie Thiersch to create a large scale dance performance that invites Birmingham dancers of all styles, backgrounds and ages to take part and celebrate the diverse dance scene that Birmingham has to offer!

In an artistic and political attempt to experience dance as a collective and democratic process, Stephanie Thiersch will create a joint choreography, integrating and connecting 50 or more professional and amateur dancers of all styles, backgrounds and ages.

We are looking for 8 professional dancers to perform the core of this choreography in collaboration with the international dancers of Mouvoir Company and have the opportunity to lead amateur groups in the Collective Spiral Dance. The dancers will be required for 4 rehearsals of 4 hours at the end of May and will receive a £300 fee.

Additional shadowing opportunity for choreographers.

There will also be an opportunity for 1 local choreographer to shadow Stephanie Thiersch forthis production and to help develop the piece alongside the choreographer. For this role, the selected choreographer will be required for up to 2 weeks rehearsal at the end of May and will receive a fee of £700.

Please get in touch with Mira Moschallski Norman by May 16th if you are interested in taking part in this event at the opening of Birmingham International Dance Festival. In this opportunity you will meet a variety of dance students and amateur dancers from Birmingham!
