Job Details


Looking for female-identified performers of all types to join in a reimagining of Alice in Wonderland for a week long residency on Governor's Island through Rising Sun Performance Company. Residency is September 24th-28th with performances in the afternoon on the 29th and 30th. Rehearsals are on Governor's Island from 10am-5pm. While I would prefer artists to commit to the entire time, I will work with folks who would need to leave a few hours early. Small stipend and free ferry admission will be provided.

About the show: What I.F. is a collaborative piece that began in November of 2017. Through text, movement, dance, music, and song, themes of difficult choices, disappointments, unrealistic expectations and overall curiosities were explored through the stories of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. With a core group of four performers and one musician, the process culminated in a workshop performance in April 2018. The main question that we want to answer is, where do you turn when the whole world is mad?

About you: Are you a female-identified performer who has many talents? Then we want you! We are looking for performers who have diverse backgrounds in acting, movement, dance, puppetry, clowning, music, mime....you name it! Ideally, you will be able to work quickly and imaginatively. Positive attitudes and a sense of play are a must!

About the process: We have an amazing opportunity to explore this piece far away from any distraction for a full week. An artist's dream! While certain aspects of the show are set, the main structure is not. We have a great opportunity to turn the show into an immersive work. This is only step two in the journey of the piece. We have our eyes on bigger festivals and beyond. We would love to find people who want to go on the full journey with us!

About the audition: September 15th from 3pm to 6pm. Come dressed to move and create.
