Events Calendar > Audition Series: Chris Black
The ODC School Audition Series brings dancers and choreographers together in a class context. Dancers may use class cards or pay a $14 drop in fee ($1 cash discount). Come early to fill out information forms and bring your resume, if you have one.Saturday, April 9, 20113:30pm - 5:30pmChris Black is looking for several male and female dancers. She would like to work with a variety of body types and age groups so "older" dancers and people who don't fit the stereotype of the dancer body are encouraged to attend. Chris is interested in dancers with any training background, but performers should be comfortable being an active collaborator in the movement generation process. Dancers should also be comfortable singing in performance, although she is not looking for trained singers, just individuals with decent pitch and a spirit of adventure.The show will be rehearsed and performed at the California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park. The show premieres the evening of Thursday, Sept 15 and will then be presented 4-5 more times during the Academy's daytime operating hours in the following weeks. There is the possibility of additional performances at a later date. Rehearsals and performances are paid. Rehearsals start in June and will be Tuesdays and Thursdays either 10-1 or 11-2. Additional rehearsals will be scheduled closer to the show. For more information, or if you are interested in the project but can't attend the audition, please contact Chris at email@example.com.Choreographer Chris Black co-founded POTRZEBIE Dance Project in San Francisco in 1993 and since that time has presented over 25 new dances, both alone and within collaborative relationships, as well as projects for film and theater. She has won both an Isadora Duncan Award and a Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle Award for Best Choreography and three commissions from the San Francisco Arts Commission. She was recently chosen as one of 4 choreographers to participate in ODC's Sandbox Series. Since 2004, she has focused on creating site-portable dances meant to be viewed outside a theater but able to adapt to different settings. Past shows have included The Adventures of Cunning & Guile, presented at the Cartoon Art Museum and Pastime, a danceabout baseball (and everything else), performed at multiple parks in San Francisco.
