International Choreographic OPEN CALL

– NO SEX –

New and experienced choreographers of all nationalities are invited to apply for Black Box Dance Company´s upcoming season, to create under the title and concept “NO SEX”.

The company is looking for 2 choreographers to create 2 individual pieces. The pieces must revolve around one or more of the following themes –

Gender, Sexuality and the over sexualisation of our society.
*The themes are open for interpretation but take note of the set framework in which each piece must be created within.*

Both pieces will be part of an evening program under the title “NO SEX”, but each one will also be performed separately. For each piece, there is a set framework, in which the choreographers must create their pieces within. The frameworks are:

NO SEX #1

  • 4 dancers from the company. Assigned by the company.
  • Working with an assigned composer (new composition) integrated with music written from before 1943.
  • Working with an assigned costume designer and light designer.
  • A duration of 35 min.
  • Age group of audience: 12 years old and up.

NO SEX #2

  • 4 dancers from the company. Assigned by the company.
  • Working with an assigned composer (new composition) integrated with music written before 1943.
  • Working with an assigned costume designer and light designer.
  • A duration of 20 min.
  • Age group of audience: youngsters and adults

For both pieces, the choreographers must work with an assigned expert/researcher on the subject and theme. For NO SEX #2 the choreographer must also cooperate with a consultant in regards to the subject of gender and sexuality in school forums.

All Black Box Dance Company productions are created in dialogue with and with guidance from the Artistic Director Marie Brolin-Tani, who maintains final artistic responsibly.
