Time Flows Performers

Studio CHOREATURA is looking for performers to participate in “Time Flows” project during Prague Quadrennial 2019.
Where: Prague
When: 7 and 8 June
Deadline for applications: ASAP
Time Flows is a single-day performance that shows how different humans, with different perceptions of time, can coexist in one city. The project is designed as a four-hour show, which will take place during the day. There will be three groups of performers, each with their own special movement pattern and own speed (slow, medium and fast). Their routes through the city will interconnect at specific points, including squares in the Old City. At the end of the performance three groups will meet at the Prague Exhibition Grounds on the Plaza, where they will unite in collective movement (lasting 15-20 minutes).
Profile required: Project requires people with different experience for different roles, so we are looking for dancers/performers/movers or simply physically active people.
Rehearsal period : 3-6 June
To apply, please send email to studio@choreatura.com with the subject “Time Flows participant” including your name, phone number, age and couple words about your physical experience.

Call for Performers: Daily Group Actions: Journeys of Presence and Absence through the Prague Exhibition Grounds

Performers comfortable with improvisational scores of pedestrian-based movement tasks such as walking, standing, kneeling and rolling.
Utilizing red coveralls, as both costume and prop, dance artists, working in collaboration, Jordan Fuchs and kNOwBOX dance (YeaJean Choi and Martheya Nygaard) will journey through the space of the Prague Exhibition Grounds in a series of daily 90-minute accumulating group actions exploring patterns of presence and absence. Each day’s group actions will build on the knowledge, experiences and intersections garnered in the previous days. No two group actions will be the same. Exploring the legibility of the human form and relationship at a distance, these explorations will utilize the bright red color of the coveralls as prop and costume to enhance visibility and to amplify our actions. We will expect the unexpected: intersections, alignments and coincidences with the public, other artists and too the weather that could not be preconceived. Performances will be on June 7, 9, 11 and 13. Costumes provided.
