Overview

Pay Rate: $550 stipend
Audition Date and Time: Callbacks will be held on Saturday December 10, 2022 from 12p to 3p at The Wilson Space (1411 W Wilson).

PrideArts is accepting video submissions for their upcoming production of one in two by Donja R. Love and directed by Jordan Ratliff.

Three Black queer men sit in an ethereal waiting room.  One is about to be chosen to live the unforgiving story of a man diagnosed with HIV, struggling to be defined by more than his status.  Unable to decide for themselves, the three men decide to let the audience choose who will play which role.  Ten years after his own diagnosis, Donja R. Love has written a fearless account of the reality for too many Americans.  A deeply personal call to action, one in two shines a light on the people behind a statistic and the strength of the community they make up.

Please prepare two contrasting 1 minute contemporary monologues.  On your tape, please state your name, pronouns and the pieces you will be performing.  Complete the audition submission form at https://forms.gle/9b1gkw2ZD2VLaGGH9.  All tapes must be received by 9pm CST December 9, 2022.  Callback notices will be sent out the same evening.  If you are invited to callbacks, we will be experimenting with contentless scenes.  Wear movement clothes and be ready to think on the spot and collaborate with your scene partners.
