Dancers

Icon Theatre are seeking 5 professional dancers with strong contemporary technique for our next big outdoor production –If Not Now – a mass movement spectacle at Rochester Castle, in February 2022.

The production will explore opportunities for profound social change and how far we can come together as a community to challenge and transform poverty and social injustice. It will feature newly commissioned live music, a mass ensemble of amazing local residents, young people and performers, and spectacular large-scale video projected onto the walls of Rochester Castle. Professional dancers will be required to rehearse and perform alongside a large cast of community participants and young people. Professional dancers must be 18+.

We want to hear from performers who are inspired by these issues and want the opportunity to work with us to devise a short, powerful, stand-alone piece of work to explore these themes with a diverse range of performers. The final production will be fully choreographed but the performers will play an essential role in devising, creating and developing that choreography. We’d like to hear from dancers from a range of backgrounds and styles. We are particularly interested to hear from disabled dancers including wheelchair users. The audition will take the form of a free dance workshop led by Jon Beney on Saturday 6 November in London.  Everyone who participates will be required for the full day (10am – 4pm).

Please read the Call Out for Performers for more information.
