SEEKING DYNAMIC ARTISTS: NEW COMPANY MEMBERS!

***READ IN FULL BEFORE RESPONDING***

Katharine Pettit Creative - KPC uses dance as our universal language, changing minds by opening hearts through movement and music. Our work spotlights social injustices and stigmatized issues, seeking to remove prejudice and allow human connection between audience and artist.

KPC is searching for dynamic, expressive artists who dance and act, specifically those adept at connecting emotion to choreography through narrative based movement. We need artists who are focused, determined and fired up to create change in the world by using dance as our medium to access emotion, leading to conversation and understanding: "We are more alike than we are different" as our motivating credo.

Especially seeking Artists who are LGBTQ and beyond as well as allies, All Races and Genders including Black, White, Asian, Hispanic, Male identifying, Female identifying, All Body Sizes and Shapes WELCOME!!!

Our current partnership with a well known Lower East Side non-profit organization hinges on our dance theatre musical, I COULD NEVER LOVE ANYONE... which spotlights addiction awareness and is a tool for recovery and healing through dance and music.

Our company needs to KNOW all repertoire inside and out so we can interchange artists for each role, rely heavily on each member to be available and come through for rehearsals and performances. We understand being working artists, needing to take those paying gigs and make ends meet. Communication is key to any successful relationship so as long as we know conflicts ahead of time and can count on you to show up mentally, emotionally and spiritually as well as physically when you say you're committed, we are gonna get along beautifully!
