Skipping Stones Theatre is an independent Toronto-based theatre collective whose mandate is to explore stories through the lens of mental health and neurodiversity. We are actively seeking submissions from actors of all backgrounds, abilities, and ethnicities as we are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion within this selection process. All artists who identify as femme, womxn and/ or female and are of the IBPOC (Indigenous, Black and/or POC) and LGBTQ2S+ communities are highly encouraged to apply.
This project is a multi-disciplinary exploration of rage, repressed traumas, and witchcraft through a lens of intersectional feminism and healing. However, the collective is particularly interested in the comedic aspects and in destigmatizing/normalization responses to stress and trauma, education by breaking down and dramatizing these responses both experientially and scientifically. We have divided the process into 2 stages: A) Research and Development, and B) Rehearsal and Performance. Currently, we are at the beginning of writing, research, and development and, in the name of true collaboration, strive to ensure that the ideas of everyone on the team are brought to the table.
The collective is currently seeking one performer/ collaborator to join this production ideally for both stages: A) Research and Development: part time work over 4 - 5 months with one weekly rehearsal from Feb. 2021 - May 2021, and B) Rehearsal and Recording: combination of part time and full time over 3 months from Sept. 2021 - Nov. 2021. We will be adhering to all Covid-19 guidelines and restrictions and, if necessary, will operate exclusively online. Access to a computer with a camera, and internet is needed.
If interested, please submit the following to email@example.com with The Rage Room Project and your preferred name in the subject line (ex: The Rage Room Project: First and Last Name):
A. Headshot and resume
B. Actors are asked to record:
- Slate of just your name and your pronouns
- Show off a skill that allows you to access play. This could be any of the following, but not limited to: singing, clowning, baking, dance (3 minutes max.)
Equity and non-Equity members are invited to apply. Payment will be in the form of an honorarium. Successful applicants will be contacted for a Zoom audition and interview set for Fri., Jan. 22nd.
