Auditions: Berkeley Dance Project 2023


Tue Sep 06 2022 at 06:00 pm to 10:00 pm


Bancroft Dance Studio | Berkeley, CA

The Department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies invites UC Berkeley students with dance/movement experience to audition for "Within These Walls" by Lenora Lee Dance. Performances will be presented at Zellerbach Playhouse in February 2023 for Berkeley Dance Project, the department’s annual dance concert.

"Within These Walls" is an award-winning, site-responsive, multimedia, immersive work by Lenora Lee Dance originally created and performed at the U.S. Immigration Station, Angel Island State Park in San Francisco Bay. The piece is dedicated to the 170,000 Chinese immigrants who were unjustly detained, interrogated, and processed at the U.S. Immigration Station during the Chinese Exclusion Era.

We seek performers with experience in choreography, improvisation, collaboration, modern/contemporary dance, hip hop, breakdancing, ballet, and/or other dance styles. We especially seek dancers with East Asian ancestry (but not exclusively). Performers will represent U.S. Immigration Station staff and Chinese immigrants who were detained on Angel Island in the early 1900s.

Students who are cast must enroll in Theater 180 for 1–2 units in the Fall 2022 and Spring 2023. Rehearsals will be held in-person throughout the fall semester and in the first six weeks of the spring semester.

In-person auditions will be held on Tuesday, September 6, 2022 from 6pm to 10pm at Bancroft Studio (2401 Bancroft Way). Prepared material is not necessary for the audition. Come ready to move fully and showcase your performance skills and creativity. Dancers will be released from the audition once they have been seen by the choreographers.
Before attending auditions, students should review production details and complete an audition form on the TDPS Callboard:

If a disability-related accommodation is needed for an audition, please contact the TDPS Undergraduate Advisor: [email protected] For students in DSP, please contact your DSP specialist and notify the department to make arrangements.
