Open Call for Performers for LEIMAY Installation and Performance: Qualia -Gardens

Calling all actors, movers, dancers and body-oriented performers to take part in a performance-installation piece taking place in Brooklyn this September 2016.

For this piece, LEIMAY is seeking individuals with any level of experience (you do not necessarily need to be a trained performer to participate). If you are enthusiastic about working with the body with a group of people, and if performing is something that interests you, do not hesitate to be part of this piece!

Individuals interested in being considered are encouraged to attend an initial work session on Monday, June 20 from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM.
The application deadline for this project passed. Thank you for your interest in LEIMAY’s community programs.

There will be ten rehearsals taking place in July and August, and performances on September September 8, 10, and 17 at 7:30 pm. Check full rehearsal details below and if you are available ALL days, please contact with any questions. This is an unpaid opportunity but we would like to offer a 30% discount on one of the upcoming LUDUS Labs taking place this year at SOAK.

Take a look at some photos from the pervious garden project in 2016 HERE and in 2015 HERE.

Qualia -Gardens is part of the New York Restoration Project’s “Arts in the Gardens” program and will take place at the The Heckscher Foundation Children’s Garden, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Founded by Bette Midler, the New York Restoration Project (NYRP) aims to enhance the quality of life in New York City via a comprehensive approach to urban land management.
