Jan. 29 - Jan. 30 (2018)
Self Portraits is an exercise in controlled chaos, honesty, and creative self-expression influenced by the "30 Plays in 60 Minutes" format. The ensemble will create thirty pieces of theatre that will be performed in a random order each night - these pieces will range from comedic to tragic to exploratory to movement-based - however, they will all be linked by honesty.
Bottle Alley Theatre Company shall be holding auditions for a cast of eight to ten individuals for our production of Self Portraits. This production will mark the first show of our fifth season, which is entitled Jump Off A Building.
Have something that you want to get off of your chest? Then this is the show for you.
We are seeking people of any performance background: Actors, comedians, improvisers, dancers, musicians, people with no performing background, anyone and everyone. As long as you can be honest and express how you feel and are open to trying new things, then we want to work with you.
Performances dates shall take place either in April or May. We operate on a laid-back rehearsal schedule of Monday and Tuesday evenings with Wednesday as a "flex" day (meaning sometimes we will rehearse and sometimes we won't)
Here is a little bit about us:
Bottle Alley Theatre Company is a DIY punk theatre company specializing in found space theatre. We have been staging strictly original work in all manner of odd places since 2012. Our work aspires to be raw, visceral, immersive, thought-provoking and, above all, honest.
Here are some links from our three previous show in this season to get an idea of our aesthetic:
We firmly believe that all artists should be paid to do the thing that they love and therefore our performers are paid, and will always be paid, a small stipend upon the conclusion of the run. It usually winds up not being very much, but the ticket sales are divided equally amongst the performers.
