OPEN CALL for Females under 35


Firenze Suona Contemporanea 2017

The 2017 edition of the Firenze Suona Contemporanea Festival is looking for a group of volunteer performers of different ethnicities, females under the age of 35, for a project planned in Florence this fall with artist Vanessa Beecroft. Dancers, performers, and actors are particularly welcome, however, no special skills will be required for non-professionals. The performances will show the normal physicality of the subjects. Good body aptitude is preferred in addition to availability to perform sessions with stage dress, makeup, and artistic nudity.

To prepare for performances, a training workshop is scheduled for a few days – tentatively between September 15-22, 2017. The performances will be held on September 29th at Palazzo Strozzi and October 2nd at the Uffizi Gallery.

Anyone who wishes to participate in the selection can send an email to by providing her data (first and last name, e-mail, and telephone contact) and by submitting a curriculum vitae with presentation photos (head shot, full body frontal and full body profile). The artist will choose the most suitable subjects among the applications received to interpret and participate in the project. A pre-selection will be made from each CV.

The first auditions will be held in Florence this month, so get your applications submitted. Details will be provided to the selected participants.
