Auditions: Feb 2-3, 2013. Please email ktshorb[at]hotmail[dot]com for time and location. The Generic Ensemble Company (GenEnCo) seeks performer-collaborators interested in experimental approaches to the work of Bertolt Brecht. Investigating racial representation, the 1970s, and various modes of story-telling, we will devise and ensemble-based theatre piece for an in-progress showing in May 2013, which will eventually lead to a full-length production in 2013-14. We are looking for people who are: open to collaborative process; interested in progressive, critical, and politically-engaged conversations and actions; engaged in body-centered work; and members of communities that are historically marginalized or disenfranchised. People of color and gender queers are especially encouraged to audition. Experience in physical theatre, movement, mime, and ensemble-based work is a plus, but not necessary. GenEnCo is an Austin-based theatre troupe that makes the invisible visible through bold, socially relevant, body-centered theatre.
