Audition call for Palestinian dancers/performers (m/f/d)

laGeste (kabinet k + les ballets C de la B), The Freedom Theatre and Douban Professional Dance are looking for dancers/performers for a new project.

In someone will always be missing, Belgian choreographers Kwint Manshoven and Joke Laureyns are making a physical performance that spans different generations of Palestinians. The makers will be working with Palestinians who all live in different places: on the West Bank, in Gaza, East Jerusalem, in the 48, in the camps of Lebanon or in Belgium. Each status hides a context, stories, tensions, sensibilities. Through images, movement and music, they will build a performance full of magic and poetry.
Made out of duets, each with one adult performer and a young child. Each starting from an intense encounter between both protagonists. Child and adult in the duets are each other’s equal, regardless of the context within which they were born in, grew up in, dream and do in.

Are you a Palestinian dancer/performer, living in Belgium/Europe with an interest in movement and/or contemporary dance and a curiosity to engage in a project that searches for connection?
