Listen up, dancers, gymnasts and circus refugees -- you have a week to rehearse your moves.

Next Friday, the Kansas City Art Institute holds an open call to select 20 to 30 performers for the school's upcoming 125th-anniversary celebration. The February 20 black-tie gala will feature KCAI alumnus Nick Cave (no, not that Nick Cave), and the dancers will perform in the 1982 grad's "soundsuits" (one of which is pictured on the right; they're a little bit Broadway Lion King and a little bit wookiee-fied George Clinton). The casting call notes that "the ability to do gymnastics and/or stilt walk is a plus." Those skills are always beneficial; the real bonus: being at the party, tickets for which start at $125.

The auditions are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, December 4, at the Art Institute's Epperson Auditorium, inside Vanderslice Hall (4415 Warwick). For more information, e-mail gala@kcai.edu.
