Audition Date: Wednesday, September 28th, 2016
Location: Pasinger Fabrik, August-Exter-Str. 1, 81245 Munich
Time: 11 am – 6 pm
We are looking for professional female dancers over 60 years old (respectively woman with a lot of dance experience).
The project is most of all for women who have time and are interested in working and dancing with Doris Dörrie and Aya Irizuki.
Doris Dörrie discovered the Japanese butoh dancer Aya Irizuki for her film „Kirschblüten-Hanami“ in an audition in Tokyo. The film was released in 2008 and had a big international success. Now we are planning a butoh dance piece with Aya as the choreographer. Doris Dörrie will develop little stories by talking with the dancers about „woman´s work“ in their past and present lives. Aya Irizuki will then translate these stories in a butoh choreography.
