Looking for professional and non-professional performers for the Viennese version of Jérôme Bel’s masterwork The show must go on in Tanzquartier Wien

Jérôme Bel is one of the most internationally in demand artists in the contemporary dance and performance scene, who revolutionised contemporary dance among others with his performance The show must go on, which received its world première in 2000. In the cult work, 20 performers and a DJ move to a series of unforgettable songs from 30 years of pop history – including hits by The Beatles, Nick Cave, Céline Dion, Simon & Garfunkel, The Police, Tina Turner and Queen. Jérôme Bel takes the songs literally and uses them to spin small tales on the stage, which partly ironically and partly affectionately, but always with their very own poetry, challenge the audience to think about what dance, the human per se, might be.

The work is now uniquely being rehearsed anew by professional and non professional dancers from Vienna for Hall E of the Tanzquartier Wien, on 17 +18 February 2012. We are looking for professional and non-professional performers of any age and backgrounds. Basic English skills needed.

Time of rehearsal: Sunday 5 February to Friday 17 February 2012

Performances: Friday 17 + Saturday 18 February 2012, 20.30, Hall E MuseumsQuartier

The participating performers will get for their work an allowance of 600 € netto
