Summer 2021 Auditions – Dacha
About the project and the company
This summer, Dacha will be producing two outdoor touring summer shows. Shows will be in-person and we will be operating by the latest WA Covid-19 safety guidelines for theaters.
The shows will be devised by the ensembles, working titles and blurbs are below:
Dears In Headlights: Dacha’s first ever drive-in play combines clowning and physical theatre for a brand new take on the classic summer pastime. Accompanied by an FM radio soundtrack, this fully devised show is dreamt up in the image of Dacha’s past summer spectacles like An Awfully Big Adventure and Metamorphoses. This sometimes silly, sometimes touching drive-in romp asks you to keep your arms, legs, and laughter inside the vehicle at all times. (Viewing options will be provided for audience members attending without a car!)
Star Play: A galaxy-sized epic adventure shrunk to be a sweetly witty bedtime story that connects the dots on all your favorite constellations (and a few you haven’t heard of)! This devised play with music careens after Pleione, the seventh brightest Pleiades sister, as she attempts to save the giant Betelgeuse from going supernova, and gains a new understanding of what change really means along the way.
Sparkling for audience members aged 1-100 light years, Star Play is visible from parks all over Seattle and the surrounding area.
