“OITO SOLOS + 1″ is looking for one female dancer

The idea behind this project is to connect “Grupo Oito”, a collective of independent choreographers, with other artists from the contemporary dance scene. Its aim is to initiate an exchange between various cultural identities, which are expressed in movement and body language.

We offer:

  1. the possibility of a joint performance in the Mime Centrum in Bethanien/Berlin with an audience discussion;
  2. one day of exchange and discussion between the participants on the working process, approaches, difficulties, discoveries, etc;


Mime centrum, Berlin, Germany

Kunstquartier Bethanien
Mariannenplatz 2
10997 Berlin

When: 01.07. & 02.07.16

Deadline for applications: 31.05.16

In the project “Oito Solos + 1” each solo critically examines an aspect of our society in an individual manner. In our 5th round of “Oito Solos + 1” we would like to give the space for female perspectives. Therefor we are looking for Solos whose author is a woman.

How to apply:

The project is thereby intended not only to offer a platform for the artists to exchange ideas on their work – due to their varying constellations the individual performances each also appear in a different light to the audience. Continuously changing aspects of our society are articulated and shall thus provide diverse perspectives on our environment. The project shall serve for communication, networking and mutual enrichment and support.

  • a short letter of motivation
  • a short description of your solo
  • Video without edition, per link (Facebook, Vimeo, Youtube) or file by email
  • References about your work if possible

  • a portrait picture
