Description Of Opportunity:
Seeking performers for the exhibition “The Soul Expanding Ocean #2: Isabel Lewis”, curated by Chus Martínez.
From September 17 to October 17, 2021, Ocean Space will host a live exhibition by the artist Isabel Lewis (b. 1981, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic), which explores Venice, the sea and memories related to it through the Church of San Lorenzo, where Ocean Space is located. This new performance will draw on storytelling, singing, and dancing as tools to explore the history of merchants, trade routes, encounters with cultures, indigenous traces, and tales of the city.
We are looking for 10 students and 10 professional performers to participate in a durational group performance that will take place every Friday and Saturday from September 17 to October 17, with additional rehearsals on September
13 and 14.
