Location: Joe’s Movement Emporium

This performance will be presented in person at Joe’s Movement Emporium’s Outdoor Stage. Limited and socially distant seats will be available through their website. Masks are required to attend.

Set in the year 2093, this theatre work follows Davu, a young black man, through the ruins of a futuristic African-American history museum. There, Davu encounters androids who help him uncover a past unrealized, as they reenact stories of both the heroism and the destruction of Davu’s predecessors. The Final Genocide is a story of the possibilities and dangers faced by black men in America.

This event is part of NextLOOK. In partnership with Joe’s Movement Emporium, NextLOOK supports the development of new music, plays, dance and other experiences by regionally-based performing artists. These artists are mentored by seasoned arts administrators from The Clarice and Joe’s Movement Emporium to construct innovative methods of deepening the audience’s involvement in their creative process. By removing logistical barriers of cost and space and providing a sounding board for artists creating new work, NextLOOK invests in the regional arts ecology and creates an accessible, exploratory environment that connects intriguing artists with adventurous audiences.

Auditions for Hamless at Greenbelt Arts Center, Jan 11 & 12

Auditions for Hamless at Greenbelt Arts Center, Jan 11 & 12

Greenbelt Arts Center announces:
Auditions for Hamless

Presented by the Rude Mechanicals in residence at the Greenbelt Arts Center

January 11 & 12, 2021

“Hamless”, directed by Erin Nealer, is an adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Hamlet,” edited to remove the title character entirely. While Hamlet never appears onscreen, his presence is felt in every tense moment as his family and friends struggle to keep the peace within the Danish court, avoid a war with Norway, and quell a rebellion, all while tiptoeing around young Hamlet’s increasingly unstable moods. Removing Hamlet from the script gives King Claudius and Queen Gertrude, the Danish courtiers, and the Norwegian invaders time to speak their minds about the Prince – and each other.

Auditions will be held via Zoom on Monday, January 11 and Tuesday, January 12 from 7-10pm. You will be scheduled for a 5-10 minute slot based on your form. You will be sent sides from which to choose via email when your audition is scheduled. If you have a piece prepared (under 2 minutes), you are also welcome to use that.

For more information click here.

A note on all characters – Every role is available to actors of any gender, race, ability, and age, but the original pronouns of each character are included below for context. The Rude Mechanicals practice identity-conscious casting; the director will work with actors to ensure their identities are respected and incorporated into their character work. Feel free to ask questions about this process during your audition or directly with the directing team via email.

Additionally, as this is a Zoom production, actors will not be required to memorize all their lines word-perfectly – scripts can be used as a cheat sheet during productions. However, please note that more lines equates to more rehearsal time, and actors who are in many scenes will need to anticipate spending more time in rehearsals each week than actors appearing in only one or two scenes. We will do our best to respect your time and accommodate your schedules.

Rehearsals will be held over Zoom on 1-3 weeknights per week, Monday-Thursday, based on cast schedules.

The Rude Mechanicals are a volunteer theater company. All roles are unpaid.
