Female dancer with a trained singing voice

Gepubliceerd op: 31 oktober 2018

Contract: n.t.b.
Vanaf: January 2019
Plaats: Amsterdam


Founded in 2000 in the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Oorkaan is the only organization in The Netherlands that has dedicated itself exclusively to the creation of high quality staged concerts for young audiences. Our aim is to give every child the opportunity to experience the power of live music. The staged concerts for 1,5 to 12-year-olds focus on all kinds of live classical music from all over the world, performed by outstanding musicians. For the creation of the productions, Oorkaan has developed the internationally recognized Oorkaan Method, which makes it unique in the world. For each new production Oorkaan brings together musicians and artists from various disciplines. These staged concerts are mostly without words, making them suitable for international tours.


For our new toddler production Tickle (2+) , we are looking for a
Female dancer (modern/classic)
with a trained singing voice (more classic, no musical/belting)

Tickle is a coproduction with the Dutch National Opera and Ballet and Philharmonie Luxembourg, with a new composition of Leonard Evers, directed by Caecilia Thunnissen.

What does a tickle in your tummy sound like? And what happens when that tickle gradually escapes through your throat and mouth, floats on the air, flies through space, slips through the viola, and whoosh, creeps into the marimba? A violin-playing singer, a dancing percussionist and a singing dancer transport the young audience in a lighthearted encounter between dance, music and voice. Tickle is a stirring, poetic dance concert for young children about the expressive powers of sound and movement. It tickles all the senses.

Following the international success of Glimpse, which has been performed all over the world since winning the YAMawards in 2015, we are now presenting a new production for children aged 2 to 4 and their (grand)parents.

PREMIERE: October 2019, National Opera & Ballet, Amsterdam, with a tour in the following months.
