In March 2021 Bobbi Lo Produktion presented the online dance festival #28solos28days, live on Instagram. Dancers from all over the world performed an improvised solo, guided by instructions from the choreographer Michael Tang. An innovative project, connecting performers and audiences through our social media.
The wait is over! Bobbi Lo Produktion is now presenting a new exciting project on Instagram; #10duets10days, premiering 17th of March 2023.
In #10duets10days Bobbi Lo Produktion will present one duet every day over the course of 10 days, live on Instagram. Each duet is a combination of physical improvisation and verbal instructions, given by the choreographers Lava Markusson and Michael Tang.
While improvising together, the dancers will be receiving individual verbal instructions through headphones.
NB: All duets will be presented and preserved on our website and social media.
We are looking for duos consisting of two dancers that already know each other, and are familiar working together. You need to apply as a duo – you can NOT apply alone!
Both dancers should have a strong presence, excellent improvisation skills and versatility, and be interested in exploring the body and movement in a new way and to connect with the audience through the screen.
As a duo you will be working artistically, choosing your own location and costume for the performance, in collaboration with the choreographers. You will be using your own device to record and share your duet, with help from the Bobbi Lo Produktion team.
The live duet will be 5 minutes long and there are no rehearsals before the performance.
You have to be open, present and adaptable.
In the online form below you need to present 1 videolink of the two dancers improvising together. The selection of dancers will be based mainly on this video.
• The video should only include the two dancers applying
• It must be exclusively improvisation. No set material/choreography.
• It should be recorded with good light
• Only videos of maximum 1 minute will be considered
We will NOT be accepting any other form of recorded material.
After a pre-selection we will contact possible candidates for an online interview.
You will be performing one day between 17th of March to 30th of March in 2023.
The amount of work on the performance day will be about 3 hours, including preparation and performance. Before the project starts there will be online info meetings with all the selected dancers and collaborators, total work time for meetings is maximum 8 hours.
The project is supported by the Swedish Arts Council and Fondet for Dansk-Svensk Samarbejde.
The collaborating companies are; Skånes Dansteater, Dansk Danseteater, Regionteater Väst, Holstebro Dansekompagni and Gunilla Lind Danseteater.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: 30TH SEPTEMBER 2022
