Audition, Industry Listing.


Filament Incubator is searching for 1 male and 2 female performers to join the ensemble of "Tire Swing" directed by Sadie Epstein-Fine, the 5th show in our 8 play season to be mounted in October 2016.

The show:
Kevin has gone missing. Three children are left to grow up in the spaces he left behind as a strange shadow begins to consume their town. Tire Swing blends horror and fantasy into a coming of age story about the intimate relationship between loss and self discovery, growing up queer in the Blyth region, and a monster hiding at the edges of the streetlight. Developed with mentorship by Andrea Romaldi at the 2016 Paprika Festial.

A rehearsal schedule will be determined following the casting of performers, with rehearsals beginning tentatively in August 2016. Cast members will be paid an honorarium plus a profit sharing model.

The Audition:

Looking for three performers to the following roles

MEN (double cast as Kevin/David)

Kevin- A ten year old boy, and a memory.
David- A closeted teenage boy.

WOMEN (2 women for 2 roles)

Lauren- A girl aged 10-18. Very smart, harbours a lot of internalized guilt.
Ellen - A girl aged 10-18. Growing apart from her friends.

The audition will be held at York University's Centre for Film and Theatre from 5-9 PM on April 15th and will consist of a movement/dance call followed by an individual reading of sides. Please be prepared to stay for the full duration of the audition and bring clothing you can move in. While a training in dance is not required, we want to see how you use your body and how you interpret the content in your body.

Send an email to with the Title "Tire Swing Audition" with a headshot, a CV and a bit about yourself to receive sides and an audition slot. While we thank all those who submit, only successful applicants will be contacted.
