CASTING CALL: The Wiener Festwochen are looking for 11 dancers for the music theatre project Requiem directed by Romeo Castellucci


The Wiener Festwochen are looking for 9 extras and 11 dancers for the music theatre project Requiem directed by Romeo Castellucci and conducted by Raphaël Pichon.

Together with the Pygmalion ensemble, Castellucci and Pichon dedicate themselves to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s last work and create an impressive and visually stunning ode to life.

Stage experience, good physical training, a good memory and a quick perception are required. Training in classical ballet with a contemporary orientation and experience are an advantage. Reliability, the ability to concentrate, the ability to work in a team, a good stage presence and the willingness to work with props are desirable.

The dancers must be available for rehearsals and performances in Vienna as well as in Brussels!
