SMALL MOUTH SOUNDS. - click + for more information

Directed by Mickey Tennenbaum

Bess Wohl’s SMALL MOUTH SOUNDS is a sweet, funny, sexy, touching play about 6 runaways from city life who embark upon a weekend silent retreat in the woods, in an attempt to address life’s biggest questions when words fail us. (Most of the play is performed without spoken dialogue.)

Characters:

JOAN is a New Age therapist and sex educator, calm on the outside and seething on the inside.

JUDY is Joan’s partner. She is a fashion editor for a top lifestyle magazine. She likes control.

ALICIA is a former child actor and beauty pageant star who makes a lot of noise, even when not speaking. She spends a lot of time stalking and texting her ex-boyfriend.

NED is the world’s unluckiest man. Don’t ask.

RODNEY is a handsome, incredibly fit yoga instructor and sexual predator. He wears a lot of man-jewelry.

JAN is pale and sweet, a Lutheran pastor from Finland. He is only vaguely familiar with the English language.

THE TEACHER – voice actor only, male or female. Strange unidentifiable accent – somewhere between affected and foreign.

*** All roles (with the exception of JAN) are open to actors of any ethnicity. ***

For the audition, please prepare a short, contemporary monologue – comic or dramatic

Description of show:

A collection of choreographers come together to respond to/grapple with today through dance. This show explores the experience of emerging from the ashes and the resilience of the human spirit.  Dance, music, and poetry intermingle to acknowledge where we’ve been and ask where we’re going.

“This is a new work, so the possibilities are open and endless!  I look forward to building this show together and learning how we marry words, poetry, music, and dance.  Each will have featured moments and moments where they interact. There is a lot to discover!  Creativity, flexibility, and a spirit of collaboration are essential!”  -Tess Flanagan, Direct

Breakdown: 

There will be a tap combination taught by John Scacchetti/Emily Phillips.  This combination will serve as the call for both John’s piece and Emily’s piece.

There will be a modern/ballet combination taught by Kayla Morgan/Rebecca Marlowe.  This combination will serve as the call for multiple choreographers’ pieces.

We will be incorporating poetry/spoken word into the show.  Four poems are provided that can be performed for this part of the audition, but we welcome any other poem or written piece that you feel is connected to the themes of our show!

We are very open to incorporating live music as well!  If you play an instrument and/or sing, we would welcome any piece that you feel is connected to the themes of our show! Instrumental, a cappella, or self-accompanied.

It is not necessary to attend both dance calls and the spoken word call.  You may audition for any and all sections as you so choose.
