DUM-association of artists invites dancers and movers as well as actors, producers, theoreticians, philosophers and others interested to take part in the audition for contemporary dance creation based on Dostoevsky’s novel Brothers Karamazov.

For the audition, the participants are hereby invited to make their own choice (in advance) in deciding, which character or idea from the book they would want to embody, dance, perform or otherwise reflect upon in the production.
Following this decision, everybody participating is asked to prepare for the audition about one minute long presentation or “statement in body”, reflecting the character or idea of their choice.

The main choice is between the characters of the three brothers (Ivan, Mitya, Alyosha) and the ”unacknowledged” brother – servant, Smerdyakov. However, if a particular participant of the audition strongly feels that he or she wants to choose between other characters of the story, he or she is free to do so.

The audition will start at 11.30 / till 14.00/pm and participants will be offered an optional warm up class in the morning at 10.30 am.

The audition is open to public.

We look forward to your participation in this event.

*The audition will be also recorded by video, therefore we ask every participant taking part in the audition to agree to their participation being recorded.

Your participation can be confirmed on where we are available for all questions relating to the audition or the following productions in English language and to Anthea Chan <> for all questions in chinese language:
