Rising Voices Open Call for 3 Young Dancers

Rising Voices Open Call for
3 Young Dancers

Application deadline: 14 February 2022, 6pm


Choreographer Alexandre Iseli, Artistic Director of Tipperary Dance, is looking for three young dancers to take part in Rising Voices, a new experimental interdisciplinary space dedicated to artistic research, creation and professionalisation.

Dance research, under the artistic direction of Alexandre Iseli, will be informed by voice practice sessions led by Musician/Composer Oscar Mascerañas, and in close collaboration with Artist/Dramaturg Javier Cuevas.

Rising Voices will lead to the production of a new contemporary dance piece, followed by a series of performances, and the creation of a screendance film.

We are looking for young dance graduates, or professional dancers seeking to gain professional experience, and pursue their transition into the professional world, with no more than two years of professional experience.

We are looking for determined, open-minded dancers who want to find their voice and are not afraid of the unknown; who are highly motivated by experimental studio research, and have a strong interest in collective work.

Technical skills matter, but the commitment and desire to engage with a large-scale project, to embrace new processes, to create, discover and play an active part within a group, matter more than any track record.

One of the main aims of this project is to develop a long-term vision approach, focused on relationship building, in-depth experience through practice, finding one’s voice, the construction of relevance through movement, and the elaboration of meaning-making through active dialogue and discussion.


Audition date: Thursday 03 and Friday 04 March 2022 (10am-5pm). Shortlisted participants for the second audition will be notified at the end of the first day.
Location: Tipperary Town, Co Tipperary
Application deadline: 14 February 2022, 6pm
