Auditions: February 2 and 3, 2012
Performance: February 15, 2012 / 6:00 pm
A visual artist and a choreographer are collaborating to create a performance piece based on chess. We are looking for both men and women who are interested in playing with boundaries and restrictions in movement through costume, space, and abstract boundaries. Thirty-two movers are needed from diverse technical backgrounds to embody the roles of the various chess pieces. Must be a team player due to the large number of people involved. The cast will rehearse for two weeks, 5 days a week. The artist is looking for both trained and untrained performers.
The performance will take place at CAM on Wednesday, February 15.
This project is produced by the World Chess Hall of Fame in conjunction with the exhibition OUT OF THE BOX: Artists Play Chess (on view September 9, 2011 – February 12, 2012). Special thanks to our Associate Sponsor: Saint Louis University’s Department of Fine and Performing Arts.
