Repertory Dance Theatre is seeking 4-6 actors of all genders, races, and ethnicities to join their company in a full evening dance/theatre production entitled Six Songs from Ellis, based on oral histories of immigrants and refugees who passed through Ellis Island. This production will include audio from oral histories woven into actor text, entwined with dance/movement, and significant projection elements and music true to the individual’s country of origin. All ages (18+) are encouraged to audition, and significant movement skills are preferred. An original piece that involves both actors and dancers in cooperative roles, actors will be heavily incorporated into this script–based dance/theatre piece, which details the stories of over 80 oral histories from immigrants who passed through Ellis Island.
