Audition Notice – Gracefool Collective

Award winning dance theatre collective Gracefool is looking for new collaborative performers for an R&D of our new work. The work will be developed into a site responsive performance for 2021, delving into themes of impending doom, time, endings, beginnings, mortality, climate despair, denial and collective joy.

Gracefool Collective make ‘post-intellectual-pseudo-spiritual-feminist-comedy-dance’. In other words performance work which sits somewhere in between dance, theatre, comedy and live art. The work has toured nationally and internationally, winning the Stockholm Fringe Grand Prix for Excellence in Performance and the Underbelly Untapped Award for New Writing. Our most recent work was featured on BBC Dance Passion 2019.

We are looking for devising performers who are interested in the themes, want to get stuck in to our collaborative working practice and are willing to be active participants in creative decision making. We are particularly interested in hearing from performers who also have their own creative or choreographic practice and will bring these skills into the making process with us.

For full details and person specification please head to this website.

Audition: Where: Yorkshire Dance, Leeds When: 4th/ 5th March (you will only be required for one of these dates)

Dates: 8th-12th June – London 22nd-26th June – Leeds

To apply please send the following to gracefoolcollective@gmail.com by 23rd Feb with the subject line
