They worked. They were paid.

Adriana, Brock and Sara are all moving on to other projects, jobs, and countries. I have really enjoyed working with them during this rehearsal process and seeing them perform work for pay at FEAST and Envoy. (Photo links coming soon.) I am happy they are gainfully employed but sad that I don’t get to spend as much time with them! 

I am doing phase II of work for pay during the week of Labor Day. The structure is a little different–I will work with the artists for only one day and we will perform the following weekend. Please pass this call onto friends.

I am seeking 3 unemployed artists for a week-long project in September. You must be unemployed, comfortable with performing, and have an active artistic practice. I will pay you minimum wage ($7.25/hour) for a full day of work on Monday, September 7 (Labor Day). From 9am-5pm we will work collaboratively on an improvisational score that addresses employment, artistic practice, and marketable skills. No prior performance or dance experience necessary–I will introduce artists to basic choreographic and improvisatory concepts. Must also be free and able to perform the afternoon of Sunday, September 13 at an outdoor performance art festival in Williamsburg. This is phase II in the project work for pay, made possible in part by FEAST (Funding Emerging Art with Sustainable Tactics). If you are interested in participating or want more information, contact me: lydia.m.bell at gmail dot com.
