Performance Opportunity: At the End of the Land

Too Close to the Sun, the creatives behind At the End of the Land, are looking for 18 young women or female-identifying performers aged 18–26 to play chorus members in their upcoming show premiering at PICA in November.

Highly aesthetic and uncanny, At the End of the Land follows an unreliable teenage narrator and her Red Monkey sidekick into the afterlife. If selected, you will participate in the five-show season, learning new methods of devising and theatre-making from the performers and creators. 

Important Information

Rehearsal Dates: one weekend of devising in September/October and several rehearsals in late November.
Performance Dates: 28 November – 2 December. 
Role: chorus member, performing for approximately five minutes at the end of each show.
Fee: $200 per participant.

To Apply

Please send a 200–300 word response about why you are interested in being part of the project, as well as a bio or CV to tooclosetothesun.theatre@gmail.com 

Applications close Monday 28 August

About the Show

Follow an unreliable teenage narrator and her Red Monkey sidekick into the afterlife as she muses over the disappearance of her fellow Victorian-era orphans and what it’s like to be dead. This David Lynchian-esque solo show from poet and performance maker Talya Rubin uses spirit photography, mediumship, and projections, as Rubin explores her brushes with the beyond in a frenzied, non-linear narrative.

Part encounter, part gothic horror, At the End of the Land is a highly aesthetic, uncanny investigation into the things we cannot explain.
