Dance auditions: Empty Spaces’ ‘Phantasmagoria’

Here’s an audition notice for dancers for Empty Spaces Theatre Co.’s October show:

Phantasmagoria auditions!!

Mandell Theater, John and Rita Lowndes Shakespeare Center

The Empty Spaces Theatre Co will be presenting Phantasmagoria, a haunting nightmare of puppetry/dance/storytelling, to celebrate the Halloween Season as part of the 2010 Orlando Puppet Festival-October 15 – 31 at the Mandell Theater of the John and Rita Lowndes Shakespeare Center in Loch Haven Park.

Phantasmagoria will feature large-scale puppetry, shadow puppets, and our own Grand Guignol Punch and Judy Stage (complete with irreverently spurting blood geysers!) all interacting with live actors, as well as fantastical and haunting dance and storytelling! Join us as we journey through tales as diverse as Frankenstein, the Banshee, Metamorphosis and the penny dreadful Varney the Vampire and from the first evil of Cain and Abel to the current day monstrosities of Jeffrey Dahmer.

Auditions: We are currently looking for 5-8 female dancers to perform various styles of movement including ballroom, ballet, modern, jazz, and imaginatively athletic explorations of creative collaboration. Having a solid dance background is preferred but all movers are welcome to apply and having some sort of theatrical background is encouraged.

Auditions will be held at the Lowndes Shakespeare Center in Loch Haven Park on Saturday, Sept. 4 @ noon and Sunday, Sept. 5 @ 3 pm. Please come dressed in a way that shows the lines of your body (no baggy clothing), comfortable dance shoes (ballet, paws, jazz shoes, etc.), and a current resume with head shot.

Please feel free to R.S.V.P, send your resume and headshot, or forward any questions you may have to phantasmagoria1031@gmail.com.
