Jillian Peña is seeking twenty male and female dancers (approximate age-range of 14-25) to participate in “Polly Pocket: Expansion Pack”, a production that will be presented at ADI on September 11 and 12, 2015.
Taking inspiration from ballet, psychoanalysis, queer theory, and Marxism, Polly Pocket is an epic dance drama in which viewers glimpse a trio in their own private world. Selected dancers will appear on stage with a simple movement and vocal score.
Two of the selected twenty dancers will hold a slightly larger role in the work. All twenty dancers will be paid a $100 honorarium each.
Interested dancers should have a strong classical technique, ability to use their voices, and be available for all dates/times listed below.
