Audition (Edmonton): I, Animal: A Socialy Distant Theatre Series – Actors

 

Introducing the newest project from ReadyGo Theatre: I, Animal by Daniel MacIvor, a Socially Distant Theatre Series. This series is meant to respond to the current public health crisis and its effects on common theatrical spaces. As the series progresses, the delivery format will morph to reflect the re-opening of public spaces and the return to normal that many expect to occur: reclamation of the city space as a theatre for the purposes of continuing to create. This project is meant to give a platform to artists in our community who have lost the chance to perform due to the necessary shutdowns and shed light on the frustrations felt by artists as their venues for performance were taken from them.

We are looking for actors for two roles: MAN IN SCRUBS, and BOY IN HOODIE. These roles are currently being considered for non-gender specific casting, details below. This is an UNPAID POSITION and meant entirely to give Edmonton artists a platform to create. The next instance of the series (I, Animal V. 2) is set to take place the evenings of August 2, 3, and 4 and will be live-streamed within the city space. Actors will be expected to cut down the provided monologues into 10-12 minute chunks based on the story that they find within the piece that they want to tell. All submissions for the second iteration will be re-considered for the third instalment of the series if you are interested in being considered for both. Due to the nature of the project, details for V.3 are currently unavailable, but it is slated to go up around the end of September.

To “audition” send us a theatre resume and a write up (no greater than 300 words) about yourself as an artist. Successful applicants will be contacted to set up a video meeting with the production team before final casting is made.

Submissions can be sent to [email protected] and can be addressed to Ryan Blair.
Submission deadline is July 5th.
