Closes: May 8th.
Neon Dance are on the look out for a professional male contemporary dancer. Subject to funding, the period of employment will include UK and international touring, with a creation period at Pavilion Dance Southwest, Bournemouth (UK).
About the work:
What makes our behaviour uniquely human? Taking inspiration from the work of Simon Baron-Cohen (Zero Degrees of Empathy: A New Theory of Human Cruelty and Kindness), Empathy reflects on what influences us to empathise with others.
Exploring the human empathy spectrum through movement, sound and set, the piece features an international cast of collaborators. Touching and emotionally charged, 5 dancers jostle for position – folding, lifting and balancing against one other as they navigate through an entangled web of behaviour.
'Empathy' is a 60-minute dance work by Adrienne Hart featuring an original score by Mads Brauer and Casper Clausen (Efterklang), in collaboration with the New York multi-instrumentalist Shahzad Ismaily and Icelandic Cellist Gyda Valtysdottir.
The award winning design collective Numen have created a laser light design and fashion artist Ana Rajcevic has been commissioned to design costume. The selected candidate will be working alongside dance artists David Lloyd, Annapaola Leso, Aoi Nakamura and Carys Staton.
