OPEN CALL
LESIONS


Looking for Oslo-based performers for new performances!

This opportunity is for a number of professional performers who are familiar with dance, choreography, scores, live composition and lip-syncing text material. All genders, styles and disciplines are welcome. You should be able to pick up both text and movement material quickly and enjoy contributing to an open and score-based process.

We are also looking for trans masculine and/or non-binary performers for a durational art piece. All skill levels, transition stages and gender expressions are welcome. The only requirements are that you like to perform and ‘be on stage’, and that you are up for performing for longer periods of time (2–4 hours at a time). The piece is an intimate situation using gaze, eating ice cream and casual touch, but does not involve nudity or sexual acts.

Practical information 
Rehearsals will take place during daytimes in Oslo between 2 and 12 September 2024.

Time requirement: 4–6 days for professional performers; 1 day for performers for the durational piece. If necessary, rehearsals for the durational piece can be scheduled outside work hours.

It is possible to apply for both roles.

Performances will take place at UKS between 13 September and 19 October 2024 on selected Fridays and Saturdays.

This is a paid job with salary according to local freelance taxes. Unfortunately, we are not able to cover travel or accommodation costs, so performers must be located in Oslo during the production period.

How to apply
Please send a short video introduction of max. 5 mins. Include a little bit about yourself, your experience as a performer and why you want to take part in the piece. If relevant, attach a portfolio and CV.

Deadline for applications is 28 July 2024.

Send your application and any questions to Jules Fischer at teamsupertender@gmail.com.

The performance-based exhibition LESIONS is about the pain of loving and the systems of gender production. One part of the project is concerned with hormones, gender-affirming surgery and the systems that police and construct both gender and sex. Another deals with the intimacy and challenges of loving and being loved. The performance is shown at UKS in collaboration with CODA Oslo International Dance Festival.
