*Yosakoi (よさこい) is a unique style of dance that originated in Japan. Yosakoi started in the city of Kōchi in 1954, as a modern rendition of Awa Odori, a traditional summer dance. Yosakoi-style dancing has spread throughout much of Japan. The style of dance is highly energetic, combining traditional Japanese dance movements with modern music. The choreographed dances are often performed by large teams. Along with a number of professional yosakoi schools and town dance teams, yosakoi is also a popular event during the sports festivals held by Japanese elementary, junior, and senior high schools. Yosakoi participants include men and women of almost all ages – sometimes within a single team. In the dialect of Tosa province (modern-day Kōchi Prefecture), “yosakoi” means “Come at night.” (Courtesy of Wikipedia)

The bleeding-edge producers of Trinidad and Tobago’s scintillating experience, Cirque de la Boheme, will host a second open casting for creatives of all disciplines. The overwhelming interest in this must-see Carnival production created the need for additional auditions. The 90-minute erotic production is set to revolutionize the traditional calypso tent with risqué subject matter, playful innuendo and humorous plots that challenge the cultural landscape of Carnival. The audition takes place on Wednesday December 19, 2012 from 5:00 p.m. at La Danse Caraibe, 32 Luis Street in Woodbrook.

Flooded with casting applications including international talent, the show’s producers were forced to consider additional audition dates. Following the first audition on Saturday December 15, 2012, Talent Manager, Tishanna Williams, eagerly stated, “If Wednesday gets any hotter than Saturday, I hope the venue has insurance because the place will be on fire!”

Castings are open to a wide range of creative professionals 18 years and older including singers and dancers of all genres, actors, acrobats, gymnasts, variety acts and carnival performers as well as soca artists and calypsonians. Applicants are required to perform two (2) audition pieces, one contemporary and one local. All applicants must submit a registration form which is available on-line accompanied by an 8 x 10 headshot. International applicants and on-line auditions are welcomed. For casting information, email or call 1-868-493-2752. Connect with Cirque de la Boheme on Facebook.
