Audition date February 25 and 26, 2019
ETHNO-CULTURAL CASTING STATEMENT:
The Cave Collective is committed to inclusive casting, and we encourage submissions from artists who self-identify as members of under-represented communities.
ABOUT THE PROJECT:
The Cave is a new cabaret event by renowned Canadian artists John Millard (composer) and Tomson Highway (lyricist). It is their distinctive and imaginative response to our planet’s precarious survival.
A group of animals hide in a cave while a forest fire rages around them. They sing about their memories, their growing anxiety, and their condemnation of the human race for evicting them from their homes. Awareness of their impending doom intensifies.
The Cave will be as entertaining as its themes are timely. The style takes its cues from Cabaret. The space will evoke both a cave and nightclub. The audience will sit at tables and be served drinks by costumed servers. Stories will be told in between songs.
The Toronto production will be streamed live to major cities, towns, small communities, Indigenous communities, and to other countries. A live event that is simultaneously watched by many people all over Canada and the world inspires and defines the spirit of the project. A space in downtown Toronto will become a national/international theatre playing in school auditoriums, community centres, theatres, wherever there is high speed internet access.
We are seeking female-identifying actor/vocalists with strong chest voices who are comfortable in the alto or mezzo range to join the ensemble of soloists.
Soloists in this production will be contracted under the CAEA D.O.T. (Dance Opera Theatre) Policy.
