AUDITION | ‘Not Like The Others’
Awesome Opportunity for Young Dancers 8yrs+
QL2 in Canberra runs a performance project for younger and less experienced dancers each year. This year’s project is entitled Not Like The Others.
Not Like The Others will be about difference: how similar are we really, and how much does it matter? The ensemble will help create a full-length dance work over six weeks with lots of other young dancers. It will be developed at QL2 Dance’s studios at Gorman Arts Centre, and performed at Theatre 3 in Acton.
It allows dancers to collaborate with choreographers and fellow dancers, develop creative and dance skills, and build confidence in a challenging yet fun environment. For many, it is a preparation for QL2’solder Quantum Leap ensemble. Older dancers are involved in this young project as well as they challenge themselves and inspire younger dancers (8–17) to work with great choreographers, contribute ideas and perform in a new show!
The ensemble will work with three great choreographers, all previously participants at QL2 Dance:
Alison Plevey will be Artistic Director of the project — Alison is a teacher, dance and physical theatre artist, creator and improviser. She is the co-director of physical theatre company, Lingua Franca; and is Party Leader of Canberra’s newest dance company, Australian Dance Party.
Stephen Gow is a teacher and dancer in Hip Hop, Contemporary, Acrobatics and Breakdancing. He is also a member of street performing crew Beat the Streets, and toured with Cypher, a bboy theatre show created by Nick Power.
Jack Riley is a recent VCA graduate and former elite Judo competitor. He recently worked for Tasdance on their new work Fragile Matter, and with the Australian Opera in King Roger. He has received a Curated Residency at QL2 Dance (Canberra) presenting his own work Contact.
To Register for Audition go to QL2.org.au. There will be a free audition workshop, where dancers will be led through a dance class and some fun tasks and creative games. No preparation is needed — but it will definitely help if you are doing some dance classes before you start. They are looking for lots of different kinds of dancers to have a go!
Three performances will be held on 13 & 14 October.
