When: Saturday October 28th from 10am to 3pm.
Where: Dongsi Longfu Theatre, Dongcheng District, Beijing
Why: The performing troupe.
We are aiming at training a group of about 16 actors to do interactive live shows at select venues. The performance is somewhat scripted, as the actors will follow a certain unfolding of events, but actors will take most of their cues from the audience present, since the show is interactive. The shows will mostly be in the format of a murder mystery. Due to the nature of the show, we will be selecting actors who can not only improv and act, but can also be PRESENT….that is, be in the moment.
There is no monologue needed for the audition. This is strictly based on your ability to listen and respond in the moment, and work with both scripted (guided) and unscripted (improv) material.
How to prepare for the audition
You MUST bring your own audition form, which must be created according to the following format
Front page- full page frontal face photograph. (Take your best selfie, blow it up and print it out).
On the back of that photograph add your details: 1) Name. 2) Phone number. 3) WeChat contact. 4) email address.
Make sure everything is easily readable. If we cannot understand it, we cannot contact you!!
What happens after the audition
We are aiming to make our first performance during the week of December 18th – 24th, 2017.
If you are selected for the troupe, rehearsals will begin Saturday, November 4th, 2017. You will be provided a script for your role, and will be expected to know your lines, cues, and be able to handle any obstacles that go contrary to the script.
The details of membership will be explained at your orientation, immediately after the audition. Your participation is entirely optional, and membership is free for the performance troupe, however, in exchange for your training period, you will have to commit to the schedule you have submitted to us, at the beginning of every month.
It is more than likely that our shows will be arranged on weekends, and sometimes on weeknights. If you cannot commit to being available (one month’s advance notice will be provided), then it is probably best not to audition for this troupe.
Rehearsals will be held for 4 consecutive weeks, on Saturdays from 2pm – 5pm, beginning November 4th, 2017. Note that before every show, there will be a 30 minute run-through.
