Silk Bath Collective is casting a collective of Asian-Canadian movers, devisers, dancers and shakers to devise "Silk Bath", a violent, satirical, intensely physical look at what it means to be accepted by a society after the citizenship paperwork is signed, premiering at the 2016 Toronto Fringe.
Set under the lights of a live taping of a reality TV show, see who lives, dies and lasts into the new world?
Rehearsals will take place at York University (Keele Campus) on Wednesdays and Thursdays starting April 13th from 12 PM-4 PM and lasting until the onset of the Fringe. Actors will be paid a small honorarium in addition to a profit sharing model.
FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY
Watch a new group of potential candidates
BATTLE EACH OTHER
for the right to live in our glorious nation.
As a live studio audience
AS WE PICK
To join our society.
Silk Bath is a vicious, satirical, physical exploration of what it means to be accepted by a society after the citizenship paperwork is signed. Set under the lights of a live reality TV show taping, four potential candidates battle it out for a place in their new home. What does it truly mean to be a citizen? Can we ever shed the label of the outsider? Think the Hunger Games meets Survivor meets Immigration.
Rehearsals will take place at York University (Keele Campus) on Wednesdays and Thursdays starting April 13th from 12 PM-4 PM and lasting until the onset of the Fringe. Actors will be paid a small honorarium in addition to a profit sharing model. While a background in movement is not essential, it is an asset as this will be an intensely physical piece (reality TV is like that!).
AUDITIONS WILL BE HELD AT THE AKI STUDIO THEATRE (585 Dundas Street E) ON APRIL 5th 2016 from 10 AM-6 PM. Each audition will be approximately 15 minutes. TO REGISTER FOR AN AUDITION SLOT email firstname.lastname@example.org with a headshot, CV and a bit about yourself and what interests you about the project!
