Norwegian artist Tori Wrånes is looking for volunteer dancers of all descriptions to perform with her in a new work at Cockatoo Island during the Opening Week of the 19th Biennale of Sydney.

We are looking for enthusiastic open-minded performers to help create a large dance chorus. Performers are asked to come as they are and will be given instructions during the rehearsals while working directly with the artist and Norwegian choreographer Tomas Glans. We guarantee fun, new experiences and the opportunity to take part in the creation of a new original artwork, alongside musicians and international performer Tori Wrånes and her crew.

We are looking for people:
Old and young
Blond and dark
Thick and thin
Black and white
Straight and LGBTQI
Tall and short
Professional or unskilled

Interesting characters, grey/white/long hair, beards and big noses is a bonus.

Performers are required for 2–3 rehearsals during the second week of March and for two 15-minute public performances on Saturday, 22 March at 12 pm and Sunday, 23 March at 3 pm.

Vivid and wild, Wrånes’ compelling dance and vocal performance will take the audience into a world wonderful, dangerous and exhilarating. Using her exquisite voice, the artist will face danger head on… In this feat, she will be accompanied by a cast of brass players and a menagerie of fantastical creatures who emerge from her playful imagination.
