ASÉ Dance Theatre Collective is a professional neo-folkloric performance ensemble that is dedicated to preserving the past, present, and future of the African presence in the "New World.' Since 2000, ASÉ has presented work that links modem dance, original vernacular movement and traditional dance theater from the African Diaspora to conceptual ideas in the human experience.
This audition is for hardworking professional dancers of color with the stamina, physical strength, and technique to contribute something powerful to our collective. Freestyle dancers welcome! Male dancers are strongly encouraged to audition! Our performances are not limited to the concert stage.
That said, we are also looking for open-minded, adventurous people that dance about more than just dance, have a strong connection to African culture and respect the intricacy of traditional movement.
Dancers with intermediate to advanced training in contemporary modem dance, African based dance forms (specifically Afro-Haitian, Cuban, Puerto Rican, Dominican and Brazilian) and unique styles of movement are encouraged to come through! We are looking for female and male dancers to learn company repertory for upcoming spring and summer performances. Permanent positions in the collective will be offered to those who demonstrate consistency and exceptional performance quality.
Most performances are paid. Currently we do not have the funding to pay dancers for rehearsal time.
We need dancers who can vocalize, hold a note, hold the rhythm, hold their balance, slice through space, and breathe where there seems to be none.
