Audition call for professional dancers

ANNOUNCEMENT OF AUDITION FOR PROFESSIONAL DANCERS

The Mercat de les Flors is pleased to announce an audition for the selection of 8 professional dancers for the Flamingos project (provisional name), created by the choreographer Albert Quesada and to be produced by the Mercat de les Flors within the framework of the Cèl·lula project, a new initiative aimed at promoting creation, research and transmission.

For Albert Flamingos will be a new immersion in the world of flamenco, after his last duet, OneTwoThreeOneTwo (2015), where he explores this art from an emotive, intimate perspective. http://www.acmearts.xyz/onetwothreeonetwo

Now he proposes a large-format piece where he continues to immerse himself in the complexity of flamenco and his own music and dance.

Albert is looking for dancers from the contemporary dance scene, with experience in improvisation, delicate, passionate, with curiosity and an interest in dancing without a script.

Albert Quesada is based in Barcelona and Brussels. He trained as a dancer and choreographer at the MDT (Amsterdam) and PARTS (Brussels) after pursuing studies in philosophy and multimedia engineering in Barcelona. The exploration and translation of musical structures and compositions into dance and the invitation to the spectators to perceive and listen to the proposed works lie at the heart of his choreographies. Furthermore, Albert is intrigued by group dynamics and movements, inspired by his work with ZOO/Thomas Hauert. Since 2005 Quesada has produced numerous pieces, some of which have been staged at the Mercat. http://acmearts.xyz
