SASHAR ZARIF Dance Theatre is looking for male/female dancers for the 2018-2021 Projects
WHO: Dancers trained in all forms of dance who are interested in exploring modes of dance as ritual, self inquiry, as well as performance and creative process that includes improvisation, breath work and chanting or sounding.
WHAT: The company is looking for new dancers to join the ensemble. Sashar Zarif’s work delves into rigorous dance practice integrating concepts of ritual, body-mind integrations, and his process “Moving Memories”. His artistic practice invites a convergence of creative and cultural perspectives steeped in the artistry and history of traditional, ritualistic, and contemporary dance of the Near Eastern and Central Asian regions.
