SUBMISSION DEADLINE THURSDAY 11/29!
Audition for “The Beauty Within” Valentine’s Dinner Circus
The theme for this show will be based around all things beautiful to celebrate the holiday of love. This audition will be for a spot in our show as elite talent. We will have weekly rehearsals to develop your piece and get notes from the directors so we can create a cohesive concept as things move along. A performer fee will be paid to anyone who is cast. Show’s will be Saturday and Sunday 2/15-2/16
What do you think is most beautiful and inspiring in this world? We created “The Darkness Within” with the prompt what is your fear? This is meant to be just as raw and genuine but from the opposite end of the spectrum. For example looking at a flower I could create a concept around the color of a flower, the feel and texture of a petal, what flowers mean as a gift, what the life a flower looks like, how a flower interacts with rain, and so on. Even one word can lead to many different concepts so try to be as specific as possible. We would like this to be about the beauty within yourself and something you truly connect with such as an exploration of feelings, overcoming loss, disease, broken relationships, finding love, survival etc. n these dark times, where do you find your light? What joy do you see within yourself? THAT is the essence of our show. Think about a beginning, middle, and end to your piece. We want to see a story taking place with each one of you whether abstract or literal! We want to include acts in our show that take the audience on a journey and help them to connect with what each of you has presented as your beautiful concept :) Please marinate on this as we will be chatting with each of you about your concept at your audition.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO HAVE A FULL PIECE COMPLETED. For the audition please present a short sample of your concept, or audition with any other previous piece you’ve done to see demonstrate your skill level. Overall concept with costume ideas music ideas will be discussed we will develop the rest over the rehearsals to come.
