Blessed Unrest is holding general auditions in September for our 2012-2013 Season. We are looking for highly-trained performers with unusual backgrounds who are interested in being part of a company, and who bring experience, intelligence, and skill into the rehearsal room.
From Blessed Unrest:
We welcome actors, dancers, opera singers, circus performers, and people with bizarre and interesting skills. Diversity is very important to us and we are seeking artists of all colors, shapes and sizes, people with disabilities, and those for whom English is not their first language.
Auditions will be September 10, 12, and 13. To apply, please email us a photo, resume, and answers to the following questions at firstname.lastname@example.org:
1) Why you are interested in working with our company?
2) What Blessed Unrest productions have you seen?
3) Have you auditioned for us before, and if so for what show?
If you are selected for an audition, we will contact you within the next two weeks to schedule an appointment.
Our 2012-2013 Season includes:
– “The Sworn Virgin”, our second international collaboration with Teatri Oda, performing in Kosova and on tour in the Balkans this November/December.
– Two full productions in New York in the winter/spring 2013.
– Developmental workshops and ensemble training sessions throughout the fall and spring.
About Blessed Unrest:
Blessed Unrest uses the safe structure of training, rehearsal and performance to create an environment where dangerous things can happen. We are a non-profit, experimental theatre company based in Manhattan and have been generating original work since 1999. Blessed Unrest pursues international collaborations, performing here and overseas, including an ongoing relationship with Teatri Oda of Kosova.
Blessed Unrest is committed to producing dynamic, disciplined, and exuberant new works for the stage in New York City and abroad, building original pieces, and reconstructing established texts with its diverse ensemble of artists.
The resident company at the Interart Theatre on West 52nd Street, Blessed Unrest has performed at PS122, the Public Theater, NYU’s Lowe Theater, Columbia University, and Manhattan School of Music, in San Francisco and on tour in Albania, Macedonia and Kosova. In 2008 we received the New York Innovative Theatre Award for Outstanding Production of a Play, and Artistic Director Jessica Burr received the 2011 Lucille Lortel Award from the League of Professional Theatre Women.
Thank you for your interest in Blessed Unrest! We look forward to hearing from you.
