Submission deadline 5pm on Feb. 8, 2019
Calling performers of all types to audition for roles in a brand new adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. This production will be presented by some of the creators who brought you the sold out Fringe productions of Lysistrata and Carmilla.
In the true spirit of burlesque ‘Ill Met By Moonlight’ seeks to question and parody some of the concerns that occupy our lives including relationships, government, media, and the degradation of our environment. This work attempts to hold a mirror up to our world in order to critique the reflection we see back. Our adaptation of Shakespeare is gender non-specific, gender non-conforming, equal representational, feminist, and queer. The combination of burlesque, bouffon, theatre and carefully curated music makes it a magical, edgy and immersive romp.
Experience with immersive and experimental theatre, dance and movement is an asset, but not required, as is the familiarity with the teachings of Philippe Gaulier and Jaques Lecoq. Queer, non binary, feminist and BIPOC’s are highly encouraged to submit. Our production believes in equal opportunities and welcomes submissions from all performers regardless of gender, age (19+), cultural background, sexuality, physical and mental ability, artistic discipline and experience.
Our first run is May 14th through 18th with further mountings in the works. Please submit a letter of interest, a headshot and a resume to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 5pm on Feb. 8, 2019. Auditions will be held on February 17th. We will be accepting some select self-tapes for those unable to audition in person.
“Ill Met By Moonlight” is created by Steph Crothers (GIrl Gang Cabarets) & Stella Kulagowski (Pointed Cap Playhouse) and directed by Rouvan Silogix (Theatre Artaud). We appreciate everyone who submits, but only those selected for an audition will be contacted. This is a non-union profit share production.
