CALL OUT FOR A DANCER
Sophie Nüzel is looking for a young (playing age 18 – 27) dancer to join the upcoming making of “The Little Watersprite Remake”. TLWS is a performance for young audiences, using dance, storytelling and puppetry. It touches on the threats to our ecosystems, the power that we hold to change things and the importance of community in a light-hearted and accessible way. Rather than constructing the world with a big set, real water, projections or other big fancy things we invite the audience to use their imagination. The show starts with nothing in the space, then step by step – together — we build and create the world of the little Watersprite — turning the world of air into a world of water through the power of our imagination! More info on the previous version (which involved a local cast of 30 people aged 8-80 wherever we went) can be found on my website https://www.sophienuezel.com/project/the-little-watersprite/
The creation phase will be in London, so ideally we are looking for someone London based.
Who might this be for?
– a versatile performer who enjoys working collaboratively
– strong presence
– strong movement/ dance skills
– puppetry experience or interest in learning basic puppetry skills
– enjoyment in making work for young audiences/ interacting with young people/audiences
