THE YOUTUBER is a hybrid online and live dance theatre show that starts on YouTube as a video diary and ends on stage as a murder mystery. A show about becoming a Youtube personality bound by promotion deals, monthly ratings and a drive to go viral.  

 

We are now calling for three dancers to join the amazing team of: choreographer Noora Hannula (FI), musician Ida Duelund (DK), dancers Helena Wilhelmsson (SE) and Hilde Sandvold (NO), light designer John P. J. Jónsson (IS) and Uppercut Dance Theater’s star dancer Mark Philip (DK).

  • Nationality: Nordic - as we are gathering a blend of Nordic dance culture and nationality and would like you to identify yourself with one of the Nordic countries. 

  • Movement & expression: You’re used to expressing yourself physically, also to the extreme, breaking the rules and inventing your own.
