Freedom Festival | MESH

We are looking for participants to join MESH, a new choreography by Vanessa Grasse, to be performed at Freedom Festival Hull.

We are looking for individuals aged 18+ with dance experience, especially in outdoor, site-specific work. You must have good concentration, focus and stamina– as you will be performing for two-three hours. Dance experience essential.

This is an unpaid opportunity, but local travel expenses will be reimbursed.

MESH invites audiences and passers-by to join in the making of a public ritual of togetherness in different spaces.

In response to our divisive global political climate, MESH explores how a participatory choreography for a large group can bring people together. It offers an experience of interdependence and collaboration through a shared physical experience.

A cast of 10 professional dancers and a group of local residents weave through streets, indoor and outdoor public spaces. Creating co-operative, self-organizing and sculptural formations responding to places, architecture and people.


How to join MESH:

Please complete the application below. Deadline Wednesday 22 August, 12 noon.

Successful applicants will be informed by Monday 28 August.
