Site-specific physical masterclass in Copenhagen - Open call for circus artists, dancers and physical performers

Københavns Internationale Teater announces a masterclass that will explore contemporary circus, dance and movement in Refshaleøen’s specific environment. At the same time it is also a workshop audition for a large-scale production scheduled for Metropolis Festival in August 2015. 

The masterclass will be led by Danish choreographer/dancer KITT JOHNSON, who is also the main director of the performance in 2015. KIT is looking for contemporary circus artists, dancers and physical performers who want to work outdoor in a site-specific context, who are curious and willing to test new ways of working and thinking, get new inspiration and move out of their comfort zone.

The group will explore different areas on Refshaleøen (Denmark) related to water, earth, air and verticality. Kitt Johnson will together with the participants discover the possibilities of working physically in/with these elements in Refshaleøen’s crumbling industrial wasteland. There will be a mix of working in a group and individually with Kitt as the mentor, and you will contribute to and influence the process with your ideas and creativity.

There will be an indoor space functioning as the base, but expect to be working a lot outdoor as well.

Dates for the masterclass: 18-22 August 2014

Capacity: 16 participants

Language: English


KIT covers costs for international and national transport, accommodation and meals during the masterclass.

As the masterclass is also a workshop audition for the production in 2015, you must be available both for the masterclass dates in August 2014 and for summer 2015 (July and August). You will know at the latest in mid- September 2014 if you’ve been selected for the performance.

Deadline for applications: 2 June.
