Alley-Up! + Audition for ticktock!

Hello everybody!

We have more information on the very fun show coming up on Sept. 29 that I mentioned in the previous post.  Here’s the full story: From 6-7pm we will be performing domestic variations: reprise in the Nord Alley in Pioneer Square (that’s the alley behind the old Eliott Bay Book Store). We’re being produced by the Alley Network Project, a fine group of Pioneer Square business owners committed to the vitality of their neighborhood.  We’ll be joined in the other Pioneer Sq. alleys by the fantastic folks at Versatile Arts, Vita Arts (a great youth outreach arts organization), and our friends Stimulate Dance.  It’s free!  So come on out and see some funky wierd performance in the alleys!

Jill and I have been working with Sage in rehearsal and it’s going to be great! Admit it: you’re curious.

Also, we’re auditioning! Did you know? Here’s the deets:

Open call for female Aerialists, Acrobats, and Dancers

ticktock is looking for one physical performer to join the company for
4 shows in New Orleans, LA, Nov. 17-20, 2011. Female strongly
preferred, but male dancers with ensemble-compatible energy will be
considered. Travel expenses and performances are paid. Continued
collaboration following this project is likely.

Performers must exhibit a strong blend of the following skills (in no
particular order):

– solid modern dance technique
– good basic acrobatics including walkovers and handstands (aerials
and handsprings a plus)
– strong aerial skills, static trapeze preferred
– ability to say “yes”, make bold choices, and develop memorable characters

We understand the rigorous nature of all four of these skill sets.
Some coaching will be available during the rehearsal process, so don’t
freak if your handstands aren’t perfect or ankle drops scare you, as
long as you are willing to work on things in and outside of rehearsal.

Rehearsals will be held at Versatile Arts in Greenwood; schedule is
subject to performers’ availability.

Be prepared to learn approximately 1 minute of choreography,
demonstrate aerial combinations on demand, and improvise on the floor and in the air. We will warm up together.

Please direct questions and RSVP to Elizabeth Rose at
liza@ticktockdance.com or call 718-974-4742.

ticktock is the Pacific Northwest’s only experimental circus and dance
company, creating genre-bending choreographic works on horizontal and vertical planes.

Keep in touch, ok?

Love,
