Jaberi Dance Theatre (Canada) is seeking 1 or 2 professional contemporary dance artists for a new work in development that will premiere September 2024 in Sweden–a co-production with Scenkonst Sörmland (Sweden).

We are looking for performers who have a strong combination of physicality and theatricality with experience and/or interest in working with social/political themes. This work involves physical touch and will delve into triggering subject matters. We are interested in dancers who take creative risk, are collaborative and generous in the creation process, and confident working in a traditional model with the choreographer as lead.

Jaberi Dance Theatre is an international and professional company who produces original interdisciplinary productions, dance films and site-specific art, working at the intersection of performance and politics. The company is based in Toronto, Canada, and is led by Artistic Director, Roshanak Jaberi.

This new production in development explores themes of displacement and the impact of architectural violence on the lives of everyday people.
