Audition/Workshop Notice

For her new creation Mycelium and potential future projects, artistic director and choreographer Rosana Ribeiro is interested in getting to know potential collaborators.

We therefore invite dancers to a two-day workshop/audition in which our movement language and creative research is going to be explored. Applicants should ideally be based in or around Salzburg.

Both days will be led by Rosana Ribeiro and co-founder Verena Pircher beginning with a warm up followed by a playful exploration of improvisation tasks and organic ways to create movement material. The practitioners explore forms and games in order to develop new dramaturgies in which the body is used as the primary vehicle to convey a story. We will also be exploring existing movement material from a previous creation.

Audition Date: January 22nd and 23rd 2022 - 10:30 - 17:00

Place: tanz_house studio, Ulrike-Gschwandtner-Straße 5, Salzburg

(The workshop will be held under compliance with current Covid-19 rules.)

We are looking for dancers who are:

  • interest in collaborative creative processes

  • highly skilled performers (dance, theatre, circus)

  • show a high commitment and identify with our values and the content of the work

  • willing to share their personal interests and curiosity with the team

Diversity is very important to us. We therefore encourage anyone to apply regardless of gender, ethnicity, sexuality, religion or ability. We are aiming to create an easy-going and comfortable environment for invited participants and therefore want to keep the group small.

If you’d like to join us for the workshop, please send your CV with a portrait and a video which represents you and your work to rosanaribeiro1@gmail.com by 6th of January. We will get back to you by the 8th of January.

Working periods:


7th - 20th February 2022

18th July - 7th August 2022

Rehearsals + Premiere:

October 2022, tanz_house Festival Salzburg
