CALL FOR FEMALE First Nations SINGER/ACTOR
CARAVAN STAGE COMPANY Tall Ship Theatre
for an experimental opera VIRTUAL ROGUES
VIRTUAL ROGUES is a new work premiering and touring around British Columbia in 2020. It is a story of love & loss in a prophetic forthcoming future “sci-fi” world of 2052…a reality without any concern for ethical or species governance. *** The Caravan Stage Company, (www.caravanstage.org) is a professional non-profit theatre company that travels and performs with a diverse cast on its own 90 ft Sailing/Theatre Ship. We create original experimental theatre/opera encompassing the themes of human and civil rights, social and environmental justice. The cast and crew live, work, and sail on the Caravan’s theatre ship, the Amara Zee. The shows are staged on the ship with original music, singing, aerial artistry, large scenic elements manipulated by the performers, video and animation projections, and intensive lighting and sound effects. *** In 2020, the show will rehearse in Richmond, British Columbia, with a dedicated crew of Canadian, US & EU artists and designers. After opening the show in Richmond, the Caravan will tour Vancouver, North Vancouver, Victoria and Sooke. We provide room and board during production and touring plus a weekly salary and all travel expenses. *** This is an intense, exhilarating, creative & traveling adventure! See the Lower Mainland and the Salish Sea by ship! *** The artists involved in productions, as both cast and technical crew, come from diverse backgrounds (Indigenous, Black and African descent, people of colour, LGBTQ, minority language communities) and represent a cross-section of abilities, genders, economic and social groups.
