Make Performance Art with Us!

Sitelines, Action II: JOIN US

We Want YOU--our audience, our extended ensemble, our supporters
As each "Sitelines" action must be in partnership, for this next action, we invite: anyone who has been or currently is affiliated with GenEnCo; anyone who wants to be affiliated with GenEnCo; anyone who supports or believes in our mission of "making the invisible visible through bold, socially relevant theatre" that centers marginalized bodies (particular queers, people of color, gender queers, immigrants and children of immigrants).

“Sitelines” is a series of short, site-specific, free and public performances devised and developed as an ensemble, which includes suggestions submitted by ensemble members and the public. Each Sitelines action will be roughly 15-30 minutes long, with 2-3 week/10-15 hour incubation/rehearsal period for each action. The core ensemble for each piece will be the Generic Ensemble Company, alongside guest performers/partners. We go to the audience, rather than waiting for the audience to come to us. The public is notified of the site and theme less than 48 hours in advance.
Requirements for participation in Sitelines, Action II:
  • You believe in our mission
  • You wish to perform in front of potentially countless strangers or actively support others doing so
  • You attend the three rehearsals
  • You like to share your ideas. You are open to listening to others. In short, you can "hold on tightly and let go lightly" and/or "move up, move back"
  • You exercise respect and enthusiasm
Rehearsal Times: 
Saturday, September 7, 1pm-5pm: Bennu Coffee Shop
Sunday, September 15, 3pm-7pm: Place TBA
Sunday, September 22, 3pm-7pm: Place TBA
Performance date, time, and place will be determined at the first rehearsal and announced to the public 48 hours in advanceThis performance and the work of the Generic Ensemble Company is funded and supported in part by the City of Austin through the Cultural Arts Division.
