The Water Station Auditions

The Water Station (Mizu no eki) by Japanese playwright Ota Shogo is a slow-movement, wordless play. Walking through a barren landscape 18 travelers stop by a dripping water faucet at different times, interacts with water and its surrounding, and continues on their separate ways, while a man living in a pile of objects witnesses their actions from above. Abounding in images of fragmentation of human civilization.

The Water Station will be performed as a 70-minute piece without intermission. 

Auditions will be held in FAC 204. For the audition, please prepare a 90 second movement piece that demonstrates your range as a mover. For callbacks, you will be asked to participate in a Suzuki workshop in the Rand Theater. You should audition if you are an actor,  dancer, mover, or are interested in learning about physical theater, Suzuki, or Viewpoints. 

Physical choreography for the show is provided by Ota Shogo. The ensemble will be engaging with the text to marry working formally and creating the psychological score of the piece. To enhance the physical endurance and to understand the psychologial score methodology, Suzuki training will be a mandatory part of our daily process. Actors will be expected to join us for at least one hour every night to work on yoga, meditation, and viewpoint training in addition to further scheduling. 

Rehearsal Dates will be Monday through Friday, 6:00-10:00, the weeks of November 18th-22nd, December 2nd-6th, and January 21st through March 7th. There will be no winter intensives overlapping with any Breaks. 

PERFORMANCE DATES: Feb. 27, Feb. 28, Feb. 29, March 4th, 5th, 6th, & 7th.
