Control Group Open Audition
Control Group Productions, resident company at Denver’s Work|Space at the Laundry, is looking for performer-collaborators to join us for several upcoming works, including our current project, which runs 4/20-28, and our 2012-13 season starting in September.
Control Group makes intermedia performance, allowing the purpose and process to guide the form of the product. With movement as our common basis, we create works that reach into our full toolbox as performers, engaging voice, character, objects, environment, etc. to fully mine the potentials of the live stage as a situation and a medium.

a bit about the projects:
Both the current project and the fall project(s) are part of an exploration revolving around Romanticism, with echoes into fairytales and the 60s…
…the relationship between the self and our surroundings in a world that exceeds our understandability…
…the supernatural, the unknowable, the forest-chaos / and the idea that we, or some, are special within this…
…The solitary artist genius, the supernatural being, the Other…
…The search for secret vistas and altered states, the journey and the being-in-the-moment, the emergence of the unexpected from within the self…
Fun fun stuff.
