Cscape Dance Company (UK)

Male or Female, Closes: December 6, 2014

Cscape are looking to expand the pool of dancers and physical performers that they work with and have two exciting performance projects for 2015 which need at least one additional dancer - male or female.

Cscape are based in Cornwall and have been making and touring work for 11 years. Please see our website www.cscape.org.uk to find out more about our work. We will be creating two productions next year - 'Neptune' and 'Taste'

'Taste' will be a full length dance theatre show that will tour in Autumn 2015 and Spring 2016 to small scale theatres and rural touring schemes. 'Neptune' will be an outdoor promenade performance that will take place in a stunning Cornish coastal garden site, and is scheduled to be created in July with performances over 3 weeks in late July and early August.

We are interested in Contemporary Dancers and Physical performers...

* who are trained to degree level, or with equivalent experience

* have at least 3 years professional performance experience

* who have experience in using voice, text, physical story-telling and characterisation

* that are theatrical, quirky, highly physical and engaging

We are looking for team players, good communicators and people that are natural collaborators. Our dancers must be happy to tour to venues big and small, from teeny tiny village halls in remote rural villages, through to small-scale theatre venues in towns and cities. We often work in outdoor sites, so need dancers who are not afraid of getting wet and muddy ... occasionally! We do deliver a lot of participatory and community work, so are keen to hear from dancers who have experience and passion for teaching and developing education projects.

In return, we are a company that really values our team and strive to offer a working environment which is inspiring, respectful, collaborative and, quite often rather fun! We tend to work with the same pool of performers for a series of projects to really develop a strong working relationship and sense of ensemble. Due to the nature of our work and the geographical areas that we work in, the ability to drive a car is very useful!

We are committed to working with dancers from Cornwall and the southwest, however we are still keen to hear from those who live further afield.

If you are interested in working with us, please send your cv and a covering letter by December 6th. We will be selecting around 10 applicants to attend a workshop with the company in the New Year to find a dancer that is right for the work.

We have 4 days of R&D planned for December 9th - 12th, in Cornwall, please indicate if you may be available to join us for this.
