Call out for Dancers for a collaboration project with JOMBA!, DUT and DAG

Durban Art Gallery (in collaboration with UKZN’s Centre for Creative Arts, the JOMBA! Contemporary Dance Experience, and the DUT Photography Department) is running an exciting collaborative project that will culminate at JOMBA! 2018, and an exhibition at DAG for Women’s Month in August.

The 21 final third level photography students will each be working with a Durban-based dancer to create a series of dance portraits that image Durban’s dance community and which also focus on the skill of catching a dancer in motion.

Durban dancers are invited to participate in this collaboration. Twenty-one dancers, who must over 18 years of age, from all styles and genres of dance - be they professional or semi-professionals - are welcome to apply.

The dancers will need to offer three hours of their time between July 18 and 27, 2018, to be photographed. In exchange for their time, a full digital portfolio of all the shots taken of the session will be made available to for selection and use in their portfolios and for ongoing use in the media. The images will also be exhibited in August and September at the Durban Art Gallery, to coincide with the special focus on JOMBA! @ DAG on September 7, 2018. There is no financial payment for participation.

To apply email a one page CV with the following information full name, Durban address, cell number, e-mail address, ID number and date of birth, style of dance you do, a small head shot inserted into the application page (NB: do not send the head shot as a separate attachment), small 150 word motivation of why you should be selected.

Deadline for applications is June 29, 2018, at 16h00.
