Auditions for It Does Strange Things, FronteraFest production, November 5, 6, 8 and 10
A fusion of film, music, dance and theatre, It Does Stange Things explores issues around shame through the reference and embodiment of it as a burdensome “monkey.” Film is projected over the bodies of the actors as they perform intimate monologues of both humor and brevity. A bit avant-garde. Will be performed at FronteraFest 2013 (Jan/Feb).
ACTORS:* please prepare either a dramatic or comedic monologue (1-2 minutes) that shows some emotional range. You will also be provided with sides from the script upon arrival to do a cold reading.
DANCERS:*please prepare a dance piece of any style you are comfortable with. Attempts to interpret the character of “the monkey” through appropriate animalistic movement are appreciated but not required. (1-2 minutes)
Auditions are Monday, (11/5) Tuesday and Thursday from 6-8:30 pm and Saturday from 10-1:30 pm at the DAC. (Dougherty Arts Center 1110 Barton Springs Road Austin, TX 78704)(click for map)
