Julien Prévieux, What Shall We Do Next? (Sequence #2) (video still), 2014. HD Video.
Blackwood Gallery at the University of Toronto Mississauga is looking for 3 dancers or movers to participate in an upcoming performance by award-winning, Paris-based artist Julien Prévieux. We are looking for a group of movers to work directly with the artist and Blackwood Gallery for this production, which will premiere January 18 ­­–19, 2017. Rehearsals are scheduled approximately 10 days before the performance dates.

Prévieux’s project, What Shall We Do Next?, uses movement to explore a series of paradoxes in our over-technologized and copyrighted world. What Shall We Do Next? asks: why do we move the way we do? Who owns and directs our gestures? How will the movements we use to interact with technology steer the way we move in the future? Reflecting on technology and its impact on human behaviour, the artist appropriates gestures and abstracts them from their utilitarian function. The result is a performance that questions technology’s use-function by exploring the poetic potential of movement.

To express your interest in auditioning for the project, please submit the following by AUGUST 26, 2016 to
- An expression of interest*
- Headshot
- Full-body shot
- 2-3 minute demo reel
- CV

Successful applicants will be contacted with audition dates, times, & requirements. Auditions will take place September 19 & 20, 2016.

*Please familiarize yourself with the artist’s work:

Seeking a cast that accurately reflects Alaska
Auditions in September

[LEONA] 16-24 years old; female; any ethnicity. Leona is a serious and confrontational girl. She is defiant and self-righteous on the surface, but terrified at her broken core. Her hesitation and fear costs the life of her sister, Willow. Water bondage escapism is part of her act.

[WILLOW] 14-21 years old; female; any ethnicity. Willow is wild and free, happy and confident. Her love of life is contagious. Every corner is brighter with her presence. She is the light.

[SILVERMAN] 22-30; male; any ethnicity. Silverman is a performer that is eager to expand his show and please the ringleader, Mister. He is talented, handsome, over-confident. His bravado shields his tender need for approval. Juggling, dancing, and physical comedy are part of his act.

[MISTER] 35-65; male; any ethnicity. Mister is the ring-leader of the performance troupe – both literally and psychologically. His presence dominates the stage, evoking mystery, mysticism, and menace.

[MADEL] 35-65; female; any ethnicity. Madel is soft, protective, and matronly. She is the caretaker of the performers, though she no longer performs herself. If Mister is the Bear, then she is the Den Mother.

Submit your story to the 4th annual High Wire Festival

-Submission Deadline July 29th, 2016-


The 4th annual WCT High-Wire Festival is looking to feature your story!

Western Canada Theatre is looking to the residents of Kamloops to share their personal stories and experiences in the city. The stories collected will be utilized as the inspiration to create the newest installment of the High-Wire Festival – SECRET CITY.

SECRET CITY is a unique, personal, audio adventure, created by local artists, that features the true, untold stories of the citizens of Kamloops – like you – that reveal a secret side of our city you didn’t know.

The only stipulation is that stories must be true, they must be yours to share, and they must be connected to a specific, physical location within Kamloops. Do you have a secret you’ve never told, a heartfelt memory, a moment of heartbreak, an instance of valour, or a story of love? Are you reminded of it every time you pass that park bench, or store front, or graffiti tag, or stop sign? Then we ask you to please share it with the artists behind SECRET CITY! Let your memory of the starlit summer night you strolled through Riverside Park and paused under the giant oak to share the kiss that told you this was forever be turned into a work of art!
