GDIF is auditioning for two male dancers for an exciting new outdoor production, inspired by Jonathan Harvey’s seminal play Beautiful Thing, which tells of the love story between two young men growing up on the Thamesmead estate in South East London.

This short dance piece, choreographed by Robby Graham will be performed as part of Out In The Streets at Greenwich+Docklands International Festival 2017, GDIF’s ‘Pride’ celebrations commemorating the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales.

We are seeking two exceptional dancers. Dancers should be youthful in appearance with a playing age of 16 – 19. The roles require strong performers who can work fast in both pick-up and devising of choreographic content. Dancers with experience in contact improvisation and partnering work highly encouraged. Experience performing in an outdoor context is desirable but not essential. In the absence of formal training, experience in a professional working context is accepted.

To be considered please send both a CV (with Headshot) and YouTube/Vimeo link of yourself dancing to info@southpawdancecompany.co.uk

Suitable applicants will then be invited to audition.
Submission Deadline: 5pm, Wednesday 31st May

Audition Details (Invitation Only): Studio 10, The Place, 17 Dukes Road, London, WC1H 9PY
Date: Sunday 4th June, 10am– 1pm
Rehearsals: 19th – 23rd June; Performance: 25th June 2017

The intention is to repeat the performance at the Thamesmead Festival on 15th Sept 2017
(with re-rehearsals on 13th & 14th September).

Confirmed paid contract at ITC / Equity Rates. Rehearsals and performances London based.

As the roles focus on engagement with the stories of young gay men, we believe lived experience of this identity will be essential to the authenticity of the production. We are therefore looking for male dancers who identify as coming from the gay community.
