CALL FOR DANCERS, CHOREOGRAPHERS & PERFORMERS – 60×60 NYC


CALL FOR DANCERS, CHOREOGRAPHERS & PERFORMERS – 60×60 NYC

60×60 Project is seeking choreographers, dancers and performance artists of all styles and genres to participate in the upcoming 60×60 Dance NYC event at the New York Dance Parade on May 22, 2010.

60×60 joins the New York Dance Parade and Festival for an exciting extravaganza of 60 one-minute dance performances to be choreographed to 60 one-minute electronic audio works and performed on stage in Tompkins Square Park.

“An express without any delay….It’s this kind of madness that makes the cultural world go round.”—The New York Times

Eclectic by nature, 60×60 Dance offers an unmatched diversity of styles, making for a fast-speed, electrifying one-of-a-kind performance that never ceases to surprise. Dances will span all forms from tribal to ballet to hip-hop to ballroom and contemporary, while music includes neo-romantic, folk, tech-house, noise, rock and everything but the kitchen sink.

60×60 Project is a one-hour-long show made by sequencing 60 pre-recorded pieces by 60 different composers, each piece a minute in length or shorter. For 60×60 dance events, each selected performer/group will be invited to create a one-minute performance to one of the 60 compositions. The 60 performances will be joined to create a 1 hour show.
