Award-winning choreographer Mathieu Geffré is looking for 2 outstanding cis/trans female or non binary dance artists with a high level of training in contemporary dance for the creation of Rendez-Vous new theatre production: The Monocle.

The Project
Recipient of the Made In The North East commission, Mathieu Geffré's new production is a re-creation of "Le Monocle", one of the most flamboyant lesbian Parisian club in the 1930’s. Conceived as a fun night out for the audience, The Monocle will re-shape the traditional theatre into a club where audiences can participate in a highly virtuosic evening mixing dance and live music.
Mathieu’s choreographic style requires performers to demonstrate a high level of physicality as well as a collaborative, playful and sensitive awareness throughout the creative and touring process. Performers must be comfortable with improvisation and partnering work.
Mathieu’s choreography carries essential values of inclusivity; therefore we actively encourage applications from artists who self-identify as black, Asian, ethnically diverse, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, non-binary, neurodiverse or disabled.  Although this is a national call-out, we will pay particular attention to artists who either, were born, trained and/or are based in the North East of England. Because of Brexit we are unfortunately unable to consider applications from performers who do not hold the right to work in the UK at this time.
Please know we will be following current Government Covid-19 guidelines throughout the process.
