Audition Call - Istotsi: The Land We Live On

We are looking for performers from all backgrounds ages 18+ based in Mohkinstsis, also known as Calgary, to join the Acting Company for our upcoming production of Istotsi: The Land We Live On. We are casting fresh young voices, regardless of experience level. 

There are three phases to this project. Selected applicants will be contracted as acting company members for all three phases of this project, from June – October 2nd.

  2. Istotsi Creation Residency – July 12 – 24
  3. Istotsi Rehearsals and Performance – August 24 – October 2

For the audition we ask that you create a 2 minute piece based on your experiences in Mohkinstsis – it can be historical, present, or futuristic, based on the land and the people who call this place their home. This can be in any performing arts discipline, traditional or contemporary, that the applicant chooses, including but not limited to: monologue/storytelling, song, dance, music, poetry, etc. 

Zoom auditions take place May 13th and 14th by appointment only. If choosing to do a self tape please introduce your video by telling us who you are, and why you’d like to join our team.
