An Examination of Violent Encounters
A Senior Thesis Project by Sean Chin ’09
This project will involve 6-8 actors performing fight scenes from the theater. There will be a range of plays and styles of performance as well as a variety of weapon disciplines. Each actor will have the opportunity to work with multiple weapons while playing both heroic and villainous roles in a scene-study-type environment.
The performances will be March 26-8 in the ’92 Theater. Credit will be available for actors through the Theater Department. Actors will be required to spend some of Spring Break on campus in rehearsal.
Auditions will be held this coming Friday from 3-6 and Saturday from 12-4. A sign-up sheet for specific times is located on the Theater Dept notice board in the CFA. Please prepare a 1-2 minute classical monologue and a 1 minute physical demonstration of combat or violence. Floor mats will be available. Wear comfortable clothes and appropriate footwear. In addition, be prepared to learn a small phrase of choreography.
