Harlequin Hipsters Might Be Looking For You!

It's the Harlequin Hipsters!

Our good friends the Harlequin Hipsters are holding auditions for an upcoming production. Passion, or Death! is “a work of Varieté Dance Theater that challenges humanity to fend off – literally – terminal tedium and doldrums by manifesting their potential and becoming who and what they have always dreamed. The inevitable consequence of not doing this: succumb to a fatal disease of unknown origin that targets the dispassionate.”

And they are looking for some electric folks to help them bring this vision to life.

Dancers who are passionate, like awesome, eclectic hip-hop and alternative music, and are into the circus arts, this is your gig! Auditions will be held on Sunday March 13th from 1pm-3pm with a dance call for interested artists from 3pm-5pm at Theater Puget Sound. Rehearsals begin April 16th once weekly and then move to three times weekly in May. Show runs two nights: June 24 & 25th at Hale’s Palladium in Fremont. Possibility of subsequent NW tour.

WE ARE SEEKING:

  • Female Variety/Vaudeville performers with polished aerial, contortion or other beauty acts to fill one of the principal roles.
  • 2 dancers (1 male, 1 female) who act, sing or possess other-worldly talents to fill ensemble member roles for group numbers and possible additional Variety acts in the show.
  • Much of the production will involve generating material as an ensemble; experience working in an ensemble format is a plus. Individuals with partner dance experience strongly encouraged to audition.

If you are an aerialist interested in auditioning please contact Whitney. Appointments will be scheduled for Saturday, March 12th from 2pm-4pm at Versatile Arts in Greenwood.

Auditions will consist of a 1-3 minute performance act of your choice; monologue, song, dance, clowning, juggling act, a bit with a dog, surprise us!
