SANDBOX SERIES 2014
Get paid to experiment! Get paid to dance!
The Sandbox Series is designed to support artistic exploration in the Bay Area Dance Community. In December 2013, 3 choreographers will be offered twelve 2-hour sessions or 8 3-hour sessions of studio time over a period of one month purely for the purpose of creative exploration. 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 one large open audition. For participation in the project, choreographers will be paid $1000, and each dancer will be paid a weekly fee of $90/week. (Choreographers may use up to $2160 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 8-10 years of professional production experience. Dancers must have professional performance experience.
Previous Sandbox choreographers have included Katie Faulkner, Rachael Lincoln, Kim Epifano, Jo Kreiter, Scott Wells, and more!
