Auditions: Ensemble: Dancing in Community

6:00 pm - 8:00 pm Webster Hall, Studio 1 (Room 117)

Ensemble: Dancing in Community is an intermediate/advanced composition course where students will collaborate to produce a full weekend showcase of their personal choreographic works. In addition to their own work, students will learn repertory from Visiting Assistant Professor Danté Brown, be immersed in a multitude of master classes from professional artists and learn the administrative/business component of being an independent artist. Students who audition must have a strong background in composition and a technique of their choosing.

Auditions will take place on September 5 and 10. Students are encouraged to attend BOTH audition dates.

Auditions: "God's Issue"

Written and directed by David Green '19E, God’s Issue re-imagines the biblical stories of Adam and Eve, Jesus and others to explore the relationship between God and humankind. Funny, irreverent and deeply serious, God’s Issue is intended for a diverse cast, so religious and non-religious folk of all races and gender identities are encouraged to audition. First-year and Five-College students are especially welcome! The show includes songs, but singing ability is not needed for most roles. The 10-12 actors in God’s Issue will play multiple parts, so auditions will involve reading a variety of roles. There is no need to prepare! Come read some scenes!

Students may attend auditions on either Tuesday or Wednesday.
