Mocean Dance releases a call for artists

The venerable company is looking for collaborators for a new participatory public artwork.

Mocean Dance is looking for artists from all disciplines to take part in preliminary research sessions that will shape its next project, a participatory public work. Currently titled PLAY and created by Halifax artist Jacinte Armstrong, the finished artwork will "invite artists and audiences to share space and time, and to make something together while exploring what it might feel like to 'think through movement'," explains Mocean's call-out.

Before that, though, Mocean needs for the input of several artists to ensure PLAY becomes an accessible artwork. Adds Mocean's release: "Selected artists will work with a core group of collaborators, directed by Jacinte, in a creative process that values open-ended, exploratory, interdisciplinary collaboration and dialogue. We are seeking artists from a variety of backgrounds, lived experience, and intersectional identities, who are interested in bringing their experience and art practice in to a collaborative and generative research space."

Sound like you? The deadline to apply to the 10-20 hour opportunity (which pays $32 hourly) is Monday, August 22 at 11:59pm.
