The City of Alexandria is seeking a performing artist or artist group/organization for a miniresidency to develop and perform a new, site-specific dance or movement-based work in response to the new temporary public artwork Wrought, Knit, Labors, Legacies by commissioned artist, installed at Waterfront Park in historic Old Town Alexandria, Virginia.

The selected artist or artist group/organization will create new site-specific work through a miniresidency, beginning with a period of site research and exploration, followed by proposing a direction for the work, time developing and rehearsing the performance, and a minimum of four scheduled public performances.

Wrought, Knit, Labors, Legacies is the second artwork commissioned in the Site See: New Views in Old Town public art series, an annual exhibition of temporary installations with the goal to attract visitors, foster interaction, provide a visual anchor and enrich the experience of Alexandria's waterfront.


Selection Process
A jury organized by the Office of the Arts will review submissions and select one artist or artist group/ organization for the dance/movement residency. The jury or staff may choose to interview candidates before making a final selection.


Budget
The artist or group/organization selected for each residency will receive an all-inclusive fee of $8,000 to develop the original, site-specific work and provide a minimum of four scheduled onsite performances at Waterfront Park within the period of June to November 2020.

2) Letter of Interest of no more than two pages indicating your experience developing original work and your preliminary approach to the residency. If a group/organization, also briefly describe your history of working together.

3) Resume/CV of no more than three pages. If a group/organization, include the resume/CV for the designated lead artist and up to three additional resumes of no more than three pages each.

4) Web links for up to five videos of performances by the artist or group/organization. Videos must be online and cannot be files that must be downloaded to access. For each clip provide a one to two sentence description, including the name of the performers and/or creators.

    • Collaborate with the Office of the Arts to create an original, site-specific dance/movement-based performance that is in response to or in conversation with Jeyifous's temporary public artwork Wrought, Knit, Labors, Legacies.

    • Provide a brief written narrative description of the commissioned performance.

    • Work with the Office of the Arts to schedule a minimum of four performances at Waterfront Park during the period of June to November 2020.

I started on Explore Talent in March and immediately found my first audition for a voice over part. When I went for the audition, I didn't get the voice over...because they cast me for a supporting role. Next I self submitted to audition for a supporting role in a movie about a NY Crime Family Boss. I didn't get that part either...because they cast me as the LEAD!! Then I self submitted for a supporting role in another film and got that one. Yes, there have been others that I have submitted for but have either not gotten the call or had to turn down the audition due to conflicts (but that is a great feeling, when you can't do it- BECAUSE YOU ARE WORKING!!!) While these haven't been paid gigs, my resume has gone from basically nothing for the last 30 years to a nicely rounded experience grouping. As a result I now have 2 SAG Franchised agents to which I am signed. - Thanks for a great start Explore Talent!
