Secession Vienna: Call for dancers / movers (f/m/d) for a performance with Jennifer Tee and Miri Lee

 

The artist Jennifer Tee has been invited by the Secession to develop a solo exhibition for the main exhibition hall which runs from 16th of September to 6th of November 2022.

The opening is scheduled for the 15th of September 2022. Combining sculpture, installation, performance and collages, the exhibition continues Tee’s ongoing process of negotiation between material experimentation and philosophical practice. www.teeteetee.nl/work

As part of the exhibition Jennifer Tee is also planning a performance work in collaboration with improvisation choreographer and dancer Miri Lee (KO).

For this performance we are looking for five dancers / movers (f/m/d) to activate and interact with the sculptural textiles made by Tee. The choreography will involve lying down and has an emphasis on subtle movements of arms, legs, and breathing. The performance will take place on the occasion of the opening and once a week as a matinee on Sundays at 11 a.m. The performance duration will be 1 hour maximum.

The dancers / movers are required to have professional contemporary dance performance experiences, a strong personal movement quality and a high interest in some improvisational assignments in the gallery space. The performance will produce an ongoing presence in the exhibition space, with some rehearsed movements and interaction with the work on show.

If interested please send an email to Annette Südbeck at office@secession.at including a CV, short paragraph on why you would be interested in being part of the performance and links to your previous works if available, preferably vimeo or you-tube links. The deadline for applications is the 17th of July 2022; casting process should be completed by 10th of August 2022.

Miri Lee is a choreographer and imprographer who has collaborated with various artists in the realms of visual art, music, science art, theater performances, and poetry. Her work focuses on the realization of momentary images through the interaction with language, light, sound, and objects as well as visualizing abstract perceptive cognition. She initiated the real-time performance platform called ‘Collectief Imprography’ based on collaborative formats for professional artists. www.mirilee.nl
