Praxis – Call for performers.
PRAXIS (Delia Bajo and Brainard Carey) are looking for performers for their new piece, Forget Me Not. The piece goes up at P.S. 122 from the 7th through the 15th of September, with a few rehearsals before opening night. See inside for more details!
We are looking for actors, men and women between the ages of 20-35. You will not have to rehearse or remember lines, but will play a pivotal role in a major performance piece by live art duo PRAXIS which has been chosen to open the new season at PS122 . The directors of this performance have a history as fine artists and have performed their installations in many important galleries including PS 1 MOMA, and were a part of the Whitney Biennial 2002. This performance is participatory, with the audience playing a major part. Your roles will be to navigate the audience through the installation, as well as appear in the performance itself. You will need to be a little spontaneous and feel good about interacting with the audience.
DATES: You will need to be available from and inclusive of 2-6th September for an orientation and two rehearsals, then performances from 7-15 September
The performances are every evening at 7pm and we will need
you there from 6:30 until 9 or 9:30.
For taking part in this production you will receive the honorarium of membership from PS122 which entitles you to discounts and other privileges at New York’s best known experimental venue. You will be listed in the program and will be considered a major part of the production. If you are interested and available for the dates mentioned, please send via email a brief resume, a photo of yourself and why you think this sound like the right thing for you in a paragraph or so. There will be an informal interview process before a final selection of 8 performers is made.
This is an equal opportunity job, all ethnic
backgrounds are considered, we are most interested in people who are excited, ambitious and want to take part in a production that is out-of-the-box and will most likely gain much press.
