Live @ The Shed 2024 Auditions with Hatch Dance and HoneyWorks - January 12

Choreographers Berit Ahlgren (HoneyWorks) and Helen Hatch (Hatch Dance) seek dancers for a new ensemble work that will premiere at the fourth iteration of Live @ The Shed taking place June 2024. Professional dancers of all ages, backgrounds, and experiences are encouraged to apply. Applicants will be asked to improvise, as well as learn phrase work, as we seek individuals who are creative, collaborative, and expressive.

We are interested in building a unique composition based on ever shifting patterns within a constantly changing musical score, requiring attuned movers who are excited to react and respond to dynamic shifts around them. We seek collaborators who are interested in offering creative solutions, patience within a complex process, and adaptability in physicality.

Dancers who have participated in previous Live @ The Shed productions should fill out an interest form but need not audition.

Saturday, January 13, 2024 between 6:30-8:30pm and
Sunday, January 14, 2024 between 10:00am-12:00pm
