Matthew Rawcliffe is looking for a dancer/collaborator and musician/composer for research & creation of a new work in May. The work is a theatrical immersive experience which will be part of a larger program with a fully zero waste process.

 

We are looking for collaborators who are genuinely passionate about sustainable art and interested in being heavily involved in the creative process of this new work.

 

Currently we are looking for artists to join us for a week of research/creation in April. The R&D phase of this project is supported by Accelerate, a project led by Yorkshire Dance in partnership with Northern School of Contemporary Dance, funded by Leeds Dance Partnership.

 

It is essential artists are available for the below dates:

 

Research week:

18-22nd May (Leeds)

Paid work at ITC rates.

It is intended for the final work, to be shared as part of The Greenhouse Theatre’s (the UK’s first zero waste theatre) new season. Subject to further funding there is the possibility for the artists to become part of this project - for the future development and performances. This will premiere in London before running at the Edinburgh Fringe and will be discussed at interview stages of the audition:
