Dance Artist

Toussaint To Move is hosting 2 Workshop-Auditions (London & Leeds) looking for 5 performing artists with strong and versatile dance ability for the research and development of ‘Free’.

Toussaint To Move is hosting 2 workshop-auditions, one in London (6th July) and one Leeds (7th July). Performers must be comfortable working with their voice and be of African Heritage and/or of the African Diaspora.

As an workshop-audition, there will be no cuts during the day.

This new work 'Free' will embark on a powerful quest to arrive to a place of no limitations on our way of life and way of being. They sing: "take me to a place where I am free, leave the people dem so they can see." A very simple and heartfelt demand that resonates through the ages. They dance as the Nyhabingi rhythms vibrate our bodies and we skank to the pulse of the one drop. 'Free' combines the worlds of Reggae Culture & Contemporary Dance to immerse audiences in the unwavering pursuit of freedom. This theatrical feat is one to remember, celebrating Reggae's global injection that has ignited revolutions all over the world since the 60s.

The company is looking for experienced, versatile dancers and performers with strong musicality. They welcome artists from a wide range of dance and movement practices, including those who have not accessed formal western dance training.
