Thank you for your interest in wanting to join Evokation Sacred Art for 2018 season.
It’s very important to understand what Evokation is and exactly what you are auditioning for. Please take time to explore our site and take a look at our past productions via youtube and our gallery page. What we explore is based inside Ritual Theatre and is focused on a transpersonal experience for every performer from which they create their art. This means that every performer goes on a very personal journey and is required to train in a specific way before they step on stage. It is this process that gives the art a palpable quality for our audiences that moves this ritual focused art out of entertainment and into an opportunity of transcendence for all.
This is an invitation to all skill levels , whether you are one who dreams of being on stage or consider to have mastery in the art of performance , this year we are wanting to collaborate with your willingness to learn, to grow, and to open yourself to allowing the art of ritual and the art of theatre to be a pathway in which you gain access to your embodied authentic self.
Auditions are a way of initiating yourself, whether you are a beginner or master, auditions allow you to face your fears of judgment, your inner limiting beliefs, and your sense of self. This is something performers are very familiar with if they truly allow themselves to feel vulnerable when being watched by others in a performance setting. It is this kind of experience where we can either crumble to our knees, hide the truth of those fears with an elaborate mask, or allow ourself to bare our soul and be witnessed in everything we are. It takes guts to do this, and it is this practice of facing our deepest fears that makes performance a portal of transformation. This is why we hold auditions for everyone, let us say that again: Everyone no matter what skillset must Audition. This is an invitation to step outside your comfort zone, have an experience with yourself, and share that experience with us as a gesture of possibility into future collaboration.
After submitting your audition you will be contacted to either a message letting you know you have been selected or not. If you are not selected you will be given an opportunity to have access to a special online course to begin learning the basics of what we teach in the privacy of your own home and consider auditioning for the following year.
If selected, you will be contacted to set up an interview for a one on one to feel into whether this would be the right next step for your personal journey. If it is you would be given all the details of what would be required of you and setup your 2018 year to incorporate your online & personal training with initiation into this work and collective group of artists.
**NOTE: If you have auditioned for us in the past two years you are eligible for the special online course as well, just email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what year you auditioned and that you would like to be placed on the list for the online course.
We would like to make clear this years offerings are focused in cultivation, continual learning, and being immersed into the very real life changing effects of traditional ritual theatre rooted in the theatre arts. Theatre is the art of story and telling a story through any medium be it acting, dance, spoken word, or any other form is an intrinsic part of what is being asked of for anyone wanting to join this troupe. It is the art of story and devotion to this style of exploration that sets this group a part from most other performance genres inside festival culture.
Training course fees are a part of this years offerings for all those interested in being a part of our collective. The fees cover the costs of facilitation and administration of Evokation Sacred Art. These fees are intentionally at an exceptionally lower cost in comparison to its value to make it reasonable for all income brackets.
One scholarship position is offered, if selected during the interview you can submit a request for scholarship if the training fees are not in your means. Please do not let the fees deter you from submitting as it is our intention to give everyone equal opportunity to make this happen if it is their souls calling.
This is an international Cyber Audition. Both men and women are welcome to audition.
