DANSKE is a new Brussels' platform, established within danscentrumjette. Together with other workspaces, theatres and partners, it offers the opportunity for young professional dancers and experienced choreographers to meet, research, create and perform. Different choreographers will be invited, to guide a DANSKE; each will hold an audition spread over 2017-2018 and select 8 to 12 dancers. Three months after an audition, the choreographer and selected dancers will work on a defined project for 6 weeks in DCJ. At the end of the 6 weeks the creation will be presented to the public in a studio performance of 30 minutes. To finalize the DANSKE edition 2017-2018, we aim for a short tour with the different DANSKEs in Belgium and abroad.

danske 1 will be with choreographer Meytal Blanaru. Meytal Blanaru is well known to DCJ. She has developed a very unique way of movement in which she uses the Feldenkrais method as a departure point and inspiration for her choreographies and teachings.

The audition-workshop for danske 1 will be held in DCJ:
8/02 from 18h-21h
9/02 from 14h30-17h30
10/02 from 14h30-18h.
Dancers 20 to 30 years, having had a formation and a minimum of experience on stage, can apply by sending a CV and motivation letter to infodanscentrumjette@gmail.com
The dancer pays an application fee of 25 for the audition-workshop and then is asked to invest in time (6 weeks of creation; 22/05 -01/07/2017). For the performances the dancers will be remunerated with a small fee.

danske 2 and 3 will be choreographed by Rakesh Sukesh and Ayelen Parolin. More information will follow.
