Unstable Connection is the working title for a devised piece of virtual theater we are going to create in Spring 2021. This project seeks to use the theatrical medium which our present moment necessitates, Zoom, to tell the stories of our time. It is clear to many of us that we are living in a unique moment - isolation, fear and claustrophobia intersecting daily with intermittent moments of hope, opportunity, and exploration. What does it mean to come together in a time when we all have to keep physically apart? Is it possible? And, looking ahead to the future, what unique opportunities could the breakdown of our ‘normal’ way of doing things possibly bring about?
This piece will be devised collaboratively by an ensemble composed of a directorial team, a dramaturgical team, and, of course, the cast. The current team members anticipate going into the rehearsal process with some potential ideas for characters and stories that can be explored, but without a full script in place. We want our cast members to feel empowered to tell the story they want to tell, provided that it relates to the general theme of the piece: whether this be a story pre-existing in literature, a story inspired by historical events, or even a story from the life of someone they know - or their own.
We will be casting in the January 2021 casting cycle; first-round auditions will be held live over Zoom, with signup slots running from January 16-18. We encourage everyone to audition, regardless of enrollment status or theatre experience!
