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 5+ years of professional production experience. Dancers must have professional performance experience.

Session 1: February 18 – March 15, 2013

Session 2: March 18 - April 12, 2013
Session 3: April 15 - May 10, 2013
Session 4: May 13 - June 7, 2013
Rehearsal times will be Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays or Mondays and Wednesdays (choreographer’s choice) from 12:30-3:30pm on the ODC campus.

To apply as a choreographer, please write a description of what you want to explore (no longer than one typewritten page), and attach a resume and a reference.
