Dancers (m/f)

The Artistic Director of «Tanz Luzerner Theater», Kathleen McNurney, will be auditioning female and male dancers for the season 2018/19.

«Tanz Luzerner Theater» is the 10-member contemporary dance company of the Luzerner Theater, with a repertoire consisting mainly of commissioned works by international choreographers. Artists such as Gustavo Ramirez Sansano, Jo Strømgren, Stijn Celis, Cayetano Soto, Georg Reischl, Didy Veldman, Fernando Melo, Bryan Arias and Fernando Magadan have created works for the company and repertoire pieces from names such as Crystal Pite, Johan Inger, Marco Goecke and Stephan Thoss add to the programming.


Kathleen McNurney is looking for versatile dancers with a solid classical ballet technique, an equally strong contemporary background and highly developed improvisational skills. The dancer must have the focus, motivation and openness to work in many different choreographic styles and the desire to participate generously in the creation process. A strong work ethic is essential. As company members with a full year’s contract, each dancer is expected to invest completely in the artistic vision of the company and to share in the responsibility of maintaining the highest possible level of our dance productions.

Dancers applying must have at least 2 years of experience in a professional company.
