Call for dancers!

PARACHUTE DANCE are looking to recruit 1-3 London based dancers for our Edinburgh Fringe show. Rehearsals will begin in South London in March, and the show runs from 11-27 August in Edinburgh.

More details now from our choreographer and director, Róisín:



Hey guys, as you may have seen, myself and a few others (‘Parachute Dance’) are putting on a fringe show in Edinburgh from the 11th to the 27th of August! (See our website below). The dance theatre piece will be using Joseph Heller’s ‘Catch 22’ as a starting point. We are now looking for 1-3 more dancers to complete our group.

As choreographer, I’m looking for people who are confident movers with a solid contemporary technique (ballet backgrounds and confidence in floorwork also desirable) but also people who are willing to experiment with voice and acting. The creative process will be a mix of improvisation on the dancers’ part and taught choreography. Rehearsals will begin in March, around one to two sessions a week, with an increase in intensity in the months running up to August. Rehearsals will be at Laban and GDA.

Unfortunately, we can’t offer payment for this project, as we are funding this ourselves and all funds will go towards venue hire and props, etc. However, accommodation costs should be reduced significantly, and you will be provided with a venue pass to see free shows where we’re performing. Plus, we hope that working on a project as a small group and performing it at one of the biggest arts festivals in the world will be a really enjoyable experience!

If you would like more information, please email me through roisintobrien2 [at] gmail (dot) com. If you would like to be considered, could you send through a short biography of your experience and any dance footage you think is appropriate.

Cheers! Róisín
