Dance. This year's youth/dance project is based on GöteborgsOperans Danskompanis theme Mind & Spirit.
Choreographers Andrea Palombi och Sara Lourenc will develop the theme together with students from Balettakademin (The Ballet Academy), students which have recently completed their dance education, and dancers from GöteborgsOperans Danskompani. Andrea and Sara have worked on similar projects with young people, all over Europe.
Our starting point will be social evolution and the digitalised world which young people inhabit and feel competent in. Young people communicate via different online media, and have even developed new languages adapted to these virtual worlds. The development process will involve the choreographers, dancers and students exploring the mental, physical and emotional effects of living in such worlds.
The Göteborg Opera is looking for dancers for an internship for a Youth/Dance project in spring 2014
In spring 2013, the Göteborg Opera launched the first Youth/Dance project, Challenge, with the goal of giving young people an education and experience through participation in a process with GöteborgsOperans Danskompani. This year's Youth/Dance project is based on the GöteborgsOperans Danskompani theme Mind & Spirit and the choreographers Andrea Palombi and Sara Lourenc will work on the theme together with dancers from GöteborgsOperans Danskompani and some ten young dancers. Andrea and Sara have worked on similar projects, and with young people, all over Europe.
For this project, we are looking for young people who have recently completed their professional dance education in Gothenburg and who see this as an opportunity after their education to obtain experience that will help them develop as dancers. No salary is paid to the young people in the project, but the Göteborg Opera supplies meals during the rehearsal period.
The participants will be selected after an audition, which will take place at The Göteborg Opera on 22 and 23 February 2014.
This is an educational project to give young people insight, skills and the experience of working in a professional environment.
The rehearsal period is between weeks 18-22 (10 am-6 pm). The premiere is on the Small Stage on 30 May 2014. There will be 3 performances in total: 30 May, 31 May and 1 June.
