GETTING TO KNOW YOU

will be the first full length performance by CURRENT BIOGRAPHY

Using our relationship to exploit the inherently meta nature of a performance duo, GETTING TO KNOW YOU will be both a commentary on the radical nature of platonic male-female friendships as well as an exploration of building our own relationship as friends and collaborators. We will juxtapose our friendship against iconic friendships found in literature, pop-culture, and throughout history. Even if it takes some digging to find cross-sex friendships that spout something other than When Harry Met Sally maxims.

NEW PROJECT NEEDS NEW PERFORMERS! (six women)

ISO six female performers for an ensemble created piece about women entering the workforce in WWII. And about Destiny’s Child’s Independent Women. And about the intersection of those two things.  
 
This (currently) untitled piece will be directed by Ashley Hollingshead.  Ashley is a Portland based director, designer, and collaborator.  Her most recent projects have included TOMORROW! (Action/Adventure), SOMETHING EPIC/EVERYDAY (Working Theatre Collective & Action/Adventure), and The Peter Pan Project (the Working Theatre Collective).  
 
Some devising experience is helpful, but not necessary.  A willingness to collaborate, play around, and to try new things are what I’m looking for.  This piece will undoubtedly incorporate a variety of performance styles and techniques.  
 
This piece will be performed in March of 2014.  Rehearsals will begin in fall/winter of 2013.  There will be a stipend. 
 
A group workshop style audition will be taking place in the evening of Monday, August 5th.  
 
If you’re interested in auditioning (or for more information), please send me an email (ashleyhollingshead@gmail.com) with your resume and why this project appeals to you.
