Audition Workshop

FACT/SF, brain child of dancer and choreographer Charles Slender, seeks dancers for the 2009/2010 season.
30 May 2009
12:00 - 17:00
1310 Mission Street
San Francisco, CA


FACT/SF opposes the idea that dancers should pay to audition, but we do require all attendees to RSVP their intent to participate by writing to Participants must also bring a résumé and be prepared for five hours of technique, improvisation, partnering, and repertory. Hired dancers will be paid for both rehearsals and performances throughout the season, which begins August 1st, 2009. Though our specific schedule for the year has yet to be finalized, dancers should expect to attend company class and rehearsals approximately 3 times per week, 20 weeks per year.

Described as “witty…and razor sharp” (Independent Weekly), Slender works to incorporate the classical with the contemporary in choreography that blurs the line between dance and theater. FACT/SF productions are rigorously crafted, physically demanding and asks dancers to both feel intensely and think critically. Before creating FACT/SF in 2008, Charles Slender toured internationally as a member of Tatiana Baganova’s Provincial Dances Theatre, and created commissions for both universities and professional dance companies throughout Russia. Charles has also presented work and taught master classes in Hong Kong and the US. He is an honors graduate from UC Berkeley, and looks forward to mucking things up.
