Casting for DEINDE and Flux Sundays
Flux Theatre Ensemble is casting for DEINDE, a new play by August Schulenburg and directed by Heather Cohn. DEINDE runs from April 28 – May 12 as part of the BFG Collective at The Secret Theatre. Rehearsals begin around March 24 on evenings and weekends. The production is an Equity Showcase with a modest stipend. Auditions are this Saturday the 4th, from 10am to 4pm.
DEINDE synopsis: In the not-too-distant future, the pressure to cure a global pandemic spurs the creation of DEINDE, a device that allows a team of brilliant quantum biologists to think directly into a powerful computer. At first, they use this prosthetic for the mind under strict rules of engagement, but soon noble ideals and personal passions lead a few to break the rules. They discover that DEINDE’s power is far greater than anyone first imagined, and their world spins out of control, raising questions of morality, consciousness, and what it means to be human in an age of rapid technological change. Learn more about the play and roles here, and please note that some roles are pre-cast.
Flux is also auditioning for Flux Sundays, our weekly workshop process that develops over 50 new plays a year. For three hours every Sunday, actors, director and playwrights gather to lightly stage new scenes and then share them together. Flux is looking for actors who are particularly interested in developing new work, and have the availability to regularly attend. Artists of all ages and types are welcome to submit, and actors of color are strongly encouraged to apply. Learn more about Flux Sundays here.
Please submit your headshot and resume to August Schulenburg at firstname.lastname@example.org, and specify if you’re interested in auditioning for DEINDE, Flux Sundays or both. Please note your availability this coming Saturday. Playwrights who are interested in Flux Sundays should submit their plays here.
