Korean National Contemporary Dance Company joins forces with Matsena Productions
Korea National Contemporary Dance Company and Matsena Productions today announce an exciting new work bringing Wales and Korea closer together. Our Co-Artistic Director Anthony Matsena and KNCDC are looking for performers for a new creation for rehearsals and performances in Seoul, Korea in 2023.
Anthony is searching for dancers who are confident in their unique skillsets from a wide range of styles and techniques, but are also eager to challenge themselves across all styles of movement.
If you enjoy a process with lots of energy, improvisation, fun and hard work then apply below from 17th March 2023.
Wales Connection will be choreographed by Anthony Matsena, with auditions held in April in Korea. The work will première on the 24th November and run until the 26th November.
"This exchange between Korea and Wales is so exciting as it brings together two cultures, filled with a rich history of the arts and of story telling." Anthony explains. "The dream is to create a work that highlights the spirit of both countries but also delivers something that couldn't be made without with these two parts of the world coming together."
Submissions open Friday 17th March and close Sunday April 9th 2023, with initial auditions taking place, Tuesday 18th April 13:00 - 19:30 and the second audition on Wednesday 19th April 12:00 - 18:00.
