Choreographer Alexandre Iseli, Artistic Director of Tipperary Dance, is looking for three young dancers to take part in Rising Voices, a new experimental interdisciplinary space dedicated to artistic research, creation and professionalisation.
Dance research, under the artistic direction of Alexandre Iseli, will be informed by voice practice sessions led by Musician-Composer Oscar Mascerañas, and in close collaboration with ArtistDramaturg Javier Cuevas.
Rising Voices will lead to the production of a new contemporary dance piece, followed by a series of performances, and the creation of a screendance film. We are looking for young dance graduates, or professional dancers with no more than two years of professional experience, seeking to gain professional experience and pursue their transition into the professional world.
We are looking for determined, open-minded dancers who want to find their voice and are not afraid of the unknown; who are highly motivated by experimental studio research, and have a strong interest in collective work.
Technical skills matter, but the comittment and desire to engage with a large-scale project, to embrace new processes, to create, discover and play an active part within a group, matter more than any track record.
One of the main aims of this project is to develop a long-term vision approach, focused on relationship building, in-depth experience through practice, finding one’s voice, the construction of relevance through movement, and the elaboration of meaning-making through active dialogue and discussion.
