Exclusions and restrictions:

- Applicants in the field off Counter-technique are excluded

- Only 100 artists may apply for the positions
- Applications lacking proper format are inadmissible
- Showreels are inadmissible

Context: For the past year, ████████████ has been able to almost operate unhindered. It is believed that its presence is responsible for worsened conditions for the human dance culture, Given the independent nature of our cultural sector, Existing Special Procedures have limited our behavior, and thus this contingency has been prepared. Given that the Foundation is responsible for the creation of a healthy the independent cultural sector, this project has been authorized by itself.

Methodology: A new team of 20 independent contemporary dance artists are to be attracted, selected, and are to culminate the activity. These can be professional, internships or associates. Also 2 special roles will be created within the project. The script reader and the scapegoat.

The script reader is to follow the script to the letter for the duration of precisely 12 minutes and 03 seconds after which he or she ████████████ ██ █████ █████ ██████ ██████ and remains part of the construct. Within the same period a small group of the most skilled artist are to create a diamond type construct on stage to serve as a buffer for the script reader. A second and third group will slip through in diagonal and line patterns, ██ members are to maintain the moving constructs on stage. 5 remaining members will jump in and out in soloistic, duo, or trio form some of which have to be maintained for longer periods of time. Thereafter, the remaining 5 associate members are to deliberately initiate a Runaround-Loop ██████████, using the diamond construct as the anchor. Once the Runaround-Loop ██████████ is established, the diagonal and line-type constructs are to be piggybacked onto the loop, Once the entire system is assembled and self-sustaining, The whole performance is to be maintained for exactly 67 minutes and 47 seconds. At this point, 20 members of the team are to relinquish control of the construct to the scapegoat, who is to maintain the assemblage of constructs alone. Each of these 20 members is to immediately administer a single bow towards the audience and disappear from stage. The window within is set at 4 seconds, whereafter the scapegoat is to maintain the structure alone for a duration of at least 2 minutes and up to 10 minutes without prompting the audience to applaud.

Nature of production: the whole process of the production will be highly bureaucratic as a critical reflection of the professional world we reside in and will be maintained through the whole project.

Consequences of success: Audience members is unable to react for longer periods of time. unable to process what they just witnessed and needing more time to react. Project is deemed culturally relevant with standing ovations at the 77 minute and 47 second mark, the continuation of the project is guaranteed.

Consequences of failure: Audience members maintain a firm grip on reality, applaud during the scapegoat transfer sequence and the performance is cut short. The performance is unable to convey its message and has to be reworked before continuation is possible. Resources for rework will be unavailable and the project collapses in on itself.

Associated Risks: In order to generate sufficient magnitude, and sufficient number of members, the deliberate use of a Runaround-Loop ██████████is required. if the operation is not completed in a suitably short period of time, the strain on resources might become too heavy. As such, the dancer and associate position’s are strictly voluntary.
