This semester, we will be devising a piece of theater that explores what fear is. The production will be an exploration of the concept, emotion, and phenomenon of FEAR– and how it varies in different ages, genders, sexualities, classes, etc. We will be telling stories and making theories.
We will be using documentary theatre techniques (most specifically, a variation of Moment work) to create a performance based on inspired ideas that come from interviews, books, songs, and journal entries. The design team will be actively involved in the creation/rehearsals, and the process will be deeply collaborative.
We are looking for a team of creators! Actors, dancers, thinkers, writers, painters, players, movers, inventors, curious humans… Experience is not necessary! Nor is it necessary for you to consider yourself a typical performer! We want a diverse ensemble filled with people who are passionate about exploring and using their bodies and minds as mediums.
Performances will take place in the ’92, on December 10th, 11th, and 12th.
Auditions will be held in the Jones Room on Sat (9/12) 1:50pm-4:10pm and Sun (9/13) 1:50pm-4pm. No preparation needed! Please try to sign up in advance here. Drop-ins will also be welcome (just may be asked to wait a bit)!
Please don’t hesitate to hit up Natalie May at nmay(at)wesleyan(dot)edu with any questions. We hope you come out!!
