CASTING CALL: Music Video – White Panda – “Hands On Me”
We are currently casting for the role of the TAILOR: 18-25 year old female dancer.

In the music video, the DJ White Panda enters an underground blackmarket location where a mysterious Tailor awaits him. The idea is DJs and popstars go to her when they need to rebrand and change their look. The Tailor transforms/makes over White Panda to his new, rebranded look throughout the video. The Tailor is like a younger/sexy/flirtatious version of a Cinderella Fairy Godmother. She wears a suit and tie and looks damn sharp in it.
Her methods are like Blackmagic as she seems to move with an almost super-human efficiency, and at key moments in the video pull White Panda into nightmarish, yet tongue in cheek, dream sequences.
In your audition, please implement movement from your style of dance. Feel free to improvise. We want to cast based off of your interpretation of the character. The track “Hands On Me” by White Panda can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jyALmrcsGo. It is also available on all streaming platforms. Please perform to this track in your audition.
Please film three different phases or actions:
Phase 1: The Tailor takes measurements of her customer with measuring tape. She measure their arm length, waist, shoulders, etc. with efficient, yet graceful movement.
Phase 2: Improvised dance to any part of the track you prefer.
Phase 3: Nightmare sequence – The Tailor picks up a chainsaw (pantomime). She dances around her customer, taunting them. She finally revs it, going full Texas Chainsaw Massacre on the customer, swinging the saw over her head while laughing maniacally.
Audition Video Parameters:
Please film auditions in landscape mode. Please begin the video with a closeup of yourself where you state your name. Please film the dance segments in wide enough of a frame to see your movement. Try to avoid too much camera movement so we can follow your actions.
