Elisabeth Schilling is looking for dance artists based in and around Hannover to commission them with the dance score Invisible Dances which is inspired by, and respects, current medical guidelines regarding performance. The performance is supposed to take place in March 2021, depending on the development of the pandemic. Rehearsals take place online.
All expressions of interest should be sent with a CV and video of them dancing to dance@elisabethschilling.com until latest 14th February 2021 Midnight at latest.
Applications from all ages, physicalities, styles, backgrounds, abilities, gender identities and ethnities are welcome. The dance score invites all dance styles.
This project is paid in lines with German artist’s rates and funded by NPN – Stepping Out.

We’re looking for six professional dancers to take part in Elisabeth’s Schilling’s Invisible Dances.

Invisible Dances combines dance and visual art in a poetic and playful way. It will take place in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole over 5 days in March. This short-term contract will see six dancers working in pairs to trace a route from the PDSW building across our borough – one through Bournemouth, one through Christchurch and one through Poole.

You will feature in filmed shorts commissioned and distributed by PDSW and on Elisabeth Schilling’s project website. You can see Elisabeth’s work and find out more about the project here
