SANDBOX SERIES 2013
Get paid to experiment! Get paid to dance!
ODC is pleased to announce the 2013 continuation of The Sandbox Series, designed to promote artistic exploration. In December 2012, 4 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 $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 3-5 years of professional production experience. Dancers must have professional performance experience.
