***SPACE IS LIMITED – PLEASE RSVP EARLY***

Khecari artistic directors Julia Rae Antonick and Jonathan Meyer are
looking for dancers with an interest in our work. These auditions will
be structured as free workshops; we will not be making cuts during the
workshop.

While we are always seeking dancers for future projects, we do not
anticipate making any decisions immediately following this audition. Any
dancers eventually hired for projects would be paid; we offer
$10.50/hour. If you have been to a previous audition, know that we are
familiar with your work, or have already
been dancing professionally for a while, we still encourage you to come
as a way of expressing interest in working with Khecari. Dancers are
also welcome to come to the audition simply as a free workshop.

We have a somatically grounded approach to dance, a strong interest
in improvisation, and a penchant for highly kinetic movement and
intricate partnering work. Because of the nature of our work, we want to
work with dancers who love to roll up their sleeves – whether that
means working hard as a dancer in the studio or being game to mop the
floor of a dusty old warehouse as part of rehearsal duties. We may ask a
wide range from you, from the pedestrian, the simple, things that may
feel easy as a technician but are integral to the work, to execution of
dance material that is explosive, athletic, technically challenging. We
are excited to work with artists who are interested in the audience’s
larger experience, not just the movement phrases. Our ideal
collaborators are enthusiastic, selfless, self-aware, and self caring,
good communicators and supportive of fellow collaborators. We love to
work with people who are continually motivated to fine tuning, digging
deeper, finding solutions, and working independently while
simultaneously taking direction eagerly.

*******

Although it is not required, we strongly encourage you to attend one
or more of our dance classes at Lou Conte or Loyola Park leading up to
the audition. These will help us be able to introduce you to some
movement themes we will focus on in the audition and give us a chance to
interact with you more:
