DC3: More in Common (2017)

Saturday, 19 August 2017 - 2:30pm to Sunday, 20 August 2017 - 10:00pm

Creative team:

Concept & Choreographer: Jo Meredith

Synopsis

Young people from Youth Music Theatre UK come together in Yorkshire to create an original dance and choral work exploring how in a divided world, music and dance can unite us all. Set against the tumult of our current political climate, Dance Connections 3: More In Common presents a brand new contemporary dance opera with an intricate and evocative musicality, inspired by recent events.

Choreographed by the award-winning Jo Meredith, this exciting and powerful Dance Connection show is a celebration of diversity, a cry for solidarity and a declaration that it is the responsibility of us all to take up the mantra of hope, shine a light on the future and truly believe that ‘we have more in common than that which divides us'.

CASTING: We are looking for the performers with very strong movement skills. This doesn't mean years of training, although some of you may have that, but plenty of fluidity and spontanteity, and an ability to work as an ensemble. And of course strong singers capable of tackling some challenging material. Auditions will be taking place in January and February 2017. Click here for more information on Auditions.
