SANDBOX SERIES 2016Get paid to experiment! Get paid to dance!The Sandbox Series is designed to support artistic exploration. In Dec 2015, 3 choreographers will be chosen for 8 3-hour sessions 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 project based and 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 with 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. The 24 hours of rehearsal space is paid for by ODC. Choreographers must have 8-10 years of professional choreographic experience. Dancers must have professional performance experience.Previous Sandbox choreographers have included Katie Faulkner, Amelia Rudolph, Kim Epifano, Jo Kreiter, Scott Wells, Erika Chong Chuch, Nicole Klaymoon, and more!SESSION DATES AND REHEARSAL SCHEDULE 2016Session 1: February 15 – March 9Session 2: March 14 – April 6Session 3: April 11 – May 4Rehearsal times will be Mondays and Wednesdays 12:30-3:30pm.CHOREOGRAPHERS’ APPLICATIONTo apply as a choreographer, please write a description of how this program would challenge and inspire you to work differently, and how it would be an artistic stretch for you personally (no longer than one typewritten page).
