DiverseWorks is holding auditions for actors/performers/improv enthusiasts to be part of an art exhibition and installation, Slyk Chaynjis, by UK-based artist Heather and Ivan Morison.
The exhibition is on view from November 1st to December 28th and the actors will be needed during gallery hours (Wednesday – Saturday, noon to 6 pm).
Rehearsals will be held from Monday, October 21 – Thursday, October 31.
Heather and Ivan Morison use social personae to investigate the construction of self. The Morisons engage with materials, histories, sites and processes. For DiverseWorks, the Morisons are developing an expansive narrative that includes a gallery exhibition and mobile public performances.
More information on Heather and Ivan Morison’s work can be found at: http://www.morison.info/
Slyk Chaynjis (F, 50+, some dance experience good): A woman of wealth who has gone through a personal catastrophe and reinvented herself. She will be interacting with the public and performing rehearsed stories in and out of the gallery. Slyk will have to work with a miniature donkey for two days of the exhibition.
Sancho (M, looking 16-25): A man (or boy) who has left his other life to follow Slyk. He is an odd contrast to the woman, but their differences complete a greater whole. He will also have to interact with the public and perform both in the gallery and in the neighborhood local to the gallery. Sancho will have to work with a miniature donkey for two days of the exhibition.
An honorarium will be provided to the actors. The honorarium amount depends on experience and availability.
Auditions are to begin immediately.
