About Auditions:

Auditions will be in the form of a workshop. Come prepared to move, play, think, and create! Wear movement clothes, and bring your open mind! If you have a headshot or recent photo and a resume, please bring that too.

We Are the 99% will be ensemble-created under the direction of Anam Cara's Artistic Director Erinn Huntley.

About the Show:

Anam Cara Theatre Company will present We Are the 99%, a devised performance exploring themes related to the Occupy Wall Street movement. Like the Occupy movement itself, We Are the 99% will resist easy definition, and refuse to directly answer the question, “What are you about?” Instead, this performance will use language and movement to break down our categories of understanding the world we live in and perhaps suggest that another world is possible.

Based on a script, by Kimberly Hartman, consisting of text and images related to the Occupy movement, director Erinn Huntley will guide ensemble members through a collaborative process of creation that will result in a thought-provoking performance in hopes to spark conversation and action in our community and abroad.

Show Dates:

March 9, 10, 11, 16, 17, 18, 30*, 31*

*denotes possible performances TBD later.
