Musicians - Dance-Theater Rock Musical, Mozart's Requiem
December 3, 2013 5:32 PM

I am a performer in this production, using Mozart's Requiem as the soundtrack for a performance exploring experiences of suicide. (All of us in the production have experiences with suicide or mental illness.) We are looking for musicians to be part of the production. Here's the call-out from our director:


Are you experimental? Can you read music and improv off a score? Are you process oriented?

Eclipse Dance Theater is looking for a Hammond –B3 player, Guitarist, Bassist and Drummer to rehearse and perform for Suicide’s Requiem. Suicide’s Requiem is a dance- theater rock and roll interpretation of understanding and abolishing suicide, and ultimately mental illness. Eclipse wants to investigate the collision of developmental dance-theater technique and The Rockquiem to create an experiment in performance healing.

The Rockquiem is Dan Combs’ rearrangement of Mozart’s Requiem for a rock and roll band. Inspired by Dr. Alfred Tomatis’ research on Mozart and his music’s ability to stimulate the brain and put order back into the nervous system we envision that the performance of the Rockquiem will facilitate healing of the performers and tangentially the audience.

Eclipse wants to put suicide to rest by addressing its underlying causes, mental illness, from a somatic healing approach. From the psycho-spiritual perspective they would like to educate, agitate, resolve, heal and move the conversation forward. Suicide’s Requiem aims to create awareness, freedom from stigma, vulnerable humanism, authenticity and heal our relationship to this societal problem.

Self directed learning of the score provided is necessary. Rehearsals will begin in January and run thru February with performances in March and April. Paid rehearsals and performances. Possible touring engagements.
