Dance theater – auditions for dancers and puppeteers
Dancers, actors and/or puppeteers with good movement skills are needed for a revival of GOLEM, a dance-marionette theatre play directed by Vít Horejs, choreographed by Naomi Goldberg Haas, with music by Frank London. The performance will run for three weeks at La MaMa E.T.C. November 3-20 (Thursdays-Sundays)
FOR FIFTY YEARS, a troupe of antique marionettes were confined to a dusty closet at Jan Hus Church in the heart of New York City’s Czechoslovak neighborhood.
In 1990, they came back to life, when director Vít Horejs brought these century-old puppets back to the stage.
Since then, the CAMT has played to great acclaim for audiences of all ages on tours to Europe, Asia, and 32 states.
One-puppeteer to 18 performers
We are casting:
Golem-a large or tall dancer who will not be a puppeteer (a part originally created by dancer, Larry Goldhuber)
plus 7 dancers who will also manipulate marionettes. Puppetry experience is a plus, but not necessary, as we will train in rehearsals.
Auditions will be held in Manhattan two days:
Sunday, May 22 3-6 pm
Wednesday, May 25 7-9 pm
