[HvEXAS] OPEN CALL: seeking voice actors for theater/dance project


OPEN CALL for voice actors

EMPAC is seeking three voice actors to participate in the production of the theater/dance project Flat, directed by Belgian-based artist Rodrigo Pardo, which will be presented at EMPAC on Saturday, February 4, 2012 (and will tour internationally after that).

We are looking for one male voice (ideally between 30 to 50 years old) who will be a main character in the story, and two female voices (late twenties to 40s) for smaller yet vital roles. Participation will be compensated.
Minimum time commitment required:

- meeting with the director: second week of January 2012 (specific time and date TBD)

- rehearsal and recording: Thursday, January 19 and/or Friday, January 20

Both the meeting and rehearsal/recording will take place at EMPAC.

Rodrigo Pardo's dance/theater project Flat combines storytelling, video projections, and aerial performance. In the narrative, a man wakes up in his apartment feeling strange, not realizing he is upside down. The audience hears his inner monologue via headphones as he discovers his new reality and enters into his dreams; he must either learn how to live anew or try to change the world back to a familiar state. Inspired by the magical realism of J.L. Borges, Flat immerses both the performer and the audience in an intimate situation, shifting our perspective on what constitutes our reality.
We are accepting sample voice materials until Thursday, December 22, 2011. Please send your audio or video reel digitally to, or via mail to:

Paula Gaetano
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
110 8th Street
Troy, NY  12180

For more information, please contact EMPAC curatorial assistant Paula Gaetano at or 518.276.4052.
