Events Calendar > Apply for the Sandbox Series
ODC is pleased to announce the 2013 continuation of The Sandbox Series, designed to promote artistic exploration. In December 2012, 3 choreographers will be chosen to engage up to 6 dancers for twelve 2-hour exploratory sessions over one month. This project is meant to support imagination and risk, it is not intended to replace the traditional pre-production rehearsal process.
Each choreographer will choose up to 6 dancers (with whom they have not worked before) in a large open audition. For participation in the project, choreographers will be paid $1,000, and each dancer will be paid a weekly fee of $90/week. (Choreographers may use up to $2,160 for dancers’ participation fees which they may allocate to the number of dancers they choose, up to a maximum of 6.) The 24 hours of rehearsal space is paid for by ODC. Choreographers must have 3-5 years of professional production experience. Dancers must have professional performance experience.
