Auditions for Circus Performers and Actors for Italo Calvino's Cosmicomics, Sky Candy, November 1 and 2, 2013
Audition notice! We are thrilled to announce that Sky Candy, east Austin's aerial and circus arts company, will be collaborating with acclaimed Austin theatre director Rudy Ramirez on an aerial theatre production of 'Cosmicomics', Italo Calvino's beloved collection of short stories. We are looking for actors, aerialists, and other circus artists to collaborate with us and perform in this exciting show!
'Cosmicomics' will run June 20th-29th 2014 at the Rollins Theater, with bi-weekly workshops starting as early as November and rehearsals starting in late April. Audition times are as follows:
Friday November 1st 8-10 pm - Saturday November 2nd 4-10 pm - CALLBACKS Sunday November 3rd noon-4pm
Aerialists/circus artists: Please prepare a 3-minute aerial or circus routine to show. You also have the option to prepare a comic monologue, and you should be prepared to read sides (lines) at the audition.
Actors: Please prepare a comic monologue and be prepared to read sides.
'Cosmicomics' is an aerial theatre adaptation of Italo Calvino's beloved collection of short stories. In the words of the director, "'Cosmicomics' will draw from the aesthetics of silent film, commedia dell’arte and turn-of-the-century circus arts to tell these stories of climbing ladders to the moon, the love-life of the last living dinosaur, and why the ultimate answer to the question “Why are we here?” just might be “pasta.”
If you are interested in auditioning, please e-mail Joanna at firstname.lastname@example.org and specify which day and time works best for you.
