In this exciting, interactive show, Miss High Leg Kick, Steve Nice and Harold Offeh will teach audiences a simplified version of the audition scene of A Chorus Line (the 1985 film). Richard DeDomenici will film the group performance as a “Redux”. They are re-creating a live group work open to all audiences (regardless of their dance background and age) – giving them the opportunity to be led by key artists in the UK live art sector today. Participants in Audition Project will experience the simple fun of learning a real “audition” choreography without any disappointing outcomes – all will star in the show.
This is a group piece about creative people striving to find an outlet for their passions – a high-energy dance piece, all the better for being performed by a group of mixed ability. It is as much about the experience as the final performance.
