Corey Baker Dance makes dance differently – using surprising locations, live performance and film work to reach large audiences around the world. Corey choreographed the global viral hitSwan Lake Bath Ballet, dancing on top of wind turbines for the COP26 climate conference, and the opening ceremony of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. Corey is an associate artist of the Royal Albert Hall, and resident choreographer of the Royal New Zealand Ballet.
They’re looking for contemporary performers for some forthcoming, large scale projects involving both live performance and dance for the camera. A strong grounding in ballet is desirable, excellent contemporary dance and improvisation skills are essential, and they’re looking for an extremely high level of performance quality. They are also interested in performers who have different movement-based skills, performers who have worked in front of the camera before, and people with experience of movement-based narrative work. You definitely don't need to look like what anyone's preconception of a dancer might be.
Current opportunities include a workshop period for a major new production with the Royal Albert Hall that brings a cult film to life (touring internationally in 2024), and film and live performances for partners in the UK and internationally. Initial engagements will be between two and eight weeks duration between October and December 2022, with the possibility of future work as the projects develop in 2023.
An audition for invited applicants will be held in London on Saturday 8 October. You'll be notified by 4 October if we'd like you to attend.
