International Dance Video Tribute to Greece

Athens Casting Call

September 11-15th, 2018


Dialogos is a video dance project that aims to show how dancers, and ultimately people, connect around the world. Today we face a global crisis, affecting different aspects of life. Emotional and spiritual connection and empathy is a necessary step for people to unite and find solutions.

Greece in turmoil is the setting I chose to express this idea. This video will include dancers in cities around the world. Dancers will be given specific directions for improvising in front of the camera, to express this theme. Their cityscape will be an important backdrop for their improvisation. It will serve to localize the dancer and will underline the international scope of the problem and highlight the requirement of connection and empathy beyond human-made borders.

As a photographer/videographer based in New York City, I started my project in USA. I am currently shooting video with acclaimed dancers including members of Martha Graham Dance Company and other choreographers and soloists who have performed at the most acclaimed NYC theaters like Joyce  and BAM. 

I am now looking for professional contemporary or ballet dancers in Athens, Greece, to participate in this international dance project. Video shoot in Athens could any of the days 11th-15th September 2018 and may be at early or late times (at sunrise/sunset/night) for reasons due to light.

Share this information with anyone interested promptly. Given the short notice and limited dates, selection will start immediately.  A handful of dancers will be engaged after a concise selection.

To express interest please contact me with one of the following sources and include links to video of your  dance improvisation. It is important to have video of improvisation not choreography.
