Projection Dance Co. auditioning for dancers

Posted on: 3/7/2018 2:11PM

Projection DanceFollowing the recent success of Projection Dance’s production FORTÉ, and the continued national and international success of the creative pairing of Mara Galeazzi and Tim Podesta under the banner of M&T In Motion, the Australian-based company is now seeking to establish a more permanent presence in Australia. It will be auditioning for Australian dancers to work alongside its line-up of internationals for slated tours, both domestic and internationally in 2019. 

 

“We are really thrilled to be able to bring FORTÉ to more Australian audiences and also have a lot of interest overseas for next year,” said Choreographer and Artistic Director Tim Podesta.“The securing of some ongoing philanthropic support has meant we can start to establish a more permanent presence here in Australia and provide more opportunities for employment for Australian dancers.”

 

Podesta, who has a long history of working with young dancers and supporting them to make the often-difficult transition from student to professional, already has a strong group of pre-professional dancers working and performing as part of the FORTÉ program. 

 

“We are looking for Australian dancers with strong classical foundations but who are also great contemporary movers and are keen to work as part of a strong creative team,” Podesta explained.

 

FORTÉ, which premiered in Melbourne in May with a star cast of dancers, including London-based dancers Travis Clausen-Knight and James Pett (who currently dance with Company Wayne McGregor), is returning for three additional performances this month: The Edge, Federation Square on Friday, July 13; The Concourse, Chatswood on Saturday, July 14; and another performance in Podesta’s hometown of Wodonga on Wednesday, July 18. 

 

Auditions are being held in Melbourne at The Edge at 10 a.m. on Friday, July 13. Applications with a CV, photos and cover letter can be sent to admin@projectiondance.com.
