About the project and the company
Seeking actors, dancers, movers and artists of all backgrounds and disciplines!
Dacha Theatre is auditioning for our upcoming world-premiere production of Dust, by Danielle Mohlman:
Wrestling with the reality that everyone he’s ever known was just killed in a shooting at his school, Boy spends his last minutes spinning a story that looks not unlike J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan. These young women, these mermaids, compete to be heard as their story unfolds. They are the swim team – powerful and sometimes monstrous.
Part dance, part theatre, Dust plays like a music score that’s been infiltrated by poetry, giving voice to the unspeakable.
Rehearsal Period: March 17th – May 7th, 2020
Show Run: May 8th – May 24th, 2020
