Job Details


We are Motivate Impact, a new theater company dedicated to dissecting complex issues through art as a means of enacting social change. We are seeking comedians, spoken-word artists, actors, playwrights, visual artists, dancers, and more for a new model of performance we are testing out.

Our first show will look at the unintended consequences of #MeToo. Since the start of the movement, men in positions of power have become reticent to hire ANY women, in fact 16-19% of men have said they avoid doing so for fear of legal trouble and (possibly more worryingly) 55% of men refuse to take 1-on-1 meetings with female co-workers for the same reasons. Our goal is to find performers (of ALL genders) who are passionate about bringing understanding, awareness and empathy to WHY this is happening to the stage.

For writers, playwrights and spoken word poets and comedians:

We’re seeking short (5-10 minute) acts that reveal some insight into this and create empathy in an audience for the viewpoint being expressed. If interested, please submit a video of you performing, as well as a brief statement of why you’re interested in working with us and connected to this issue, to We will contact the acts we are interested in collaborating with further about next steps and further details.
