Opportunity: Assistant Director for Bottle Alley Theatre, Austin - SELF PORTRAITS, January - April, 2023

(via BATC)

Bottle Alley Theatre Company in Austin is seeking an assistant director for our upcoming production of Self Portraits 3. This is a paid position. 

Self Portraits 3 is the third live installment of our Self Portraits performances, Bottle Alley's most popular shows and our most direct connection to our DIY and punk roots. Self Portraits is our take on a popular late-night Chicago show format, in which the ensemble writes and performs thirty original pieces in a random order each night. Some of the pieces are funny. Some are sad. Some are non-verbal. But they are all bonded together through themes of honesty and brevity. The result scan best be described as barely controlled chaos. An unhinged amount of raw expression. We like to say that this is a good show for people with something to get off of their chest. And with all that is going on in the world currently, and over the past two years, there is no better time than now to do this show.
