Rehearsals are Fridays and Saturdays from 12- 4pm, and dancers are offered a modest monthly stipend for rehearsals and weekly fee for performances. Todd is specifically looking for technically skilled dancers who enjoy movement invention and creative problem solving. Intellectual challenges, puzzles and physical experiments often characterize the rehearsal process, as we work to generate a unique movement language for each piece.
