Performers with intermediate experience that enjoy collaborative work, participatory games and plots, and are interested in topics such as social structures of inclusion/exclusion. Much of the performance will consist of close verbal and physical interaction with the public as well as participation in choreography, reading and brainstorming sessions. If you don’t have much experience with performance but are still interested, don’t hesitate to apply, as there are multiple roles with diverse levels of interaction.


An introduction and important scene of the performance will take place on October 13th, 2017. Rehearsals will be about four to five days for more extensive roles and about four to six hours for other roles. The dates of the rehearsals will take place approximately two weeks before October 13th. For the rest of Saturdays, rehearsals will happen during the prior weeks.
