AUDITIONS for BOLERO AKRON
Auditions for the World Premiere of Bolero Akron!
The electrifying New York City dance company Keigwin + Company to cast world premiere dancework.
Come to an open call audition for the world premiere of Bolero Akron, founder and Artistic Director Larry Keigwin's take on iconic elements of Akron past and present. Set to the well-known score by Ravel, the piece will include 50-75 area residents to celebrate the city in dance and theatrical movement. This work will follow in the footsteps of Keigwin's Bolero NYC, which The New York Times praised as "a joyful and breathtakingly clever celebration of the city and its people." Other site-specific Bolero pieces have been set in Denver, Santa Barbara and Connecticut.
No dance experience necessary!
You don't need to be a performer, you just need live in the area and want to move on stage. Rehearsals will take place in the evenings from Tuesday, September 21st through the performance on October 2nd. Flexible and accommodating with schedules. Cast members will each receive two free tickets to the performance, plus discounts for additional tickets.
