Seeking Dancers & Actors for Immersive Project on Governors Island
The Woolgatherers Theater Group
The Woolgatherers Theater Group seeks dancers and actors with a strong movement background for Genesis 22, an immersive and site-specific re-telling of the Biblical story of Abraham and Isaac. Seven different versions of the story, each devised by a different director working with 2-4 actors, interweave to tell this controversial tale of faith and sacrifice.
Comfort with partnering and improvisation is a must. Experience with immersive, interactive, and or/devised performance is preferred. People of color, queer and trans people, and women all strongly encouraged to apply. Please include headshot and cover letter specifying availability for audition dates and times with submission.
