Joan Bradford is looking for additional dancers for the creation of a new project set, informed, and driven by the work of rapper & lyricists J. Cole.

Looking for contemporary, post-modern contemporary dancers with an interest in a collaborative, improvisationaly driven process. Training in theatre or physical theatre techniques helpful but not necessary. An interest in rap/hip-hop music preferred.

Rehearsals will take place weekday mornings/early afternoons or weekday evenings (ultimately decided on respective group) at Triskelion Arts, 106 Cayler St, Brooklyn, NY.

Upon creation of work, performance opportunities will take place in Newburgh, NY (transportation provided) as well as NYC in the fall/winter of 2017-2018. The completed work will also be used for applications for future opportunities through out NYC and possibly aboard.

Project proposal:

With a great appreciation, admiration, and uttermost respect for the musical genre of rap/hip-hop, I am proposing a concept for an evening length group work driven by the lyricists, J. Cole. Through deep analysis of J. Cole’s profound text, the project will piece together a variety of musical works from an assortment of J. Cole’s albums that include themes of self-affirmation, self-actualization, self-reflection and the impact, compromise, and downfall the abrasive over analyzation of all three can create. Through contemporary movement and Suzuki motivated physical theatre interpretations of text, performers will ‘personal source’ the material, creating a medley of individualized movement based explications to phrasing from each bar. The piece will thrive to create an abstract relationship to the literalness of the score and the more complex, resounding themes the arrangements of poetry construct.
