OPEN AUDITIONS for 2017 Summer Season
The Annual Open Auditions for Kalya Scintilla’s Live Shows for 2017 have officially begun. Beginning Sept. 22nd 2016 and ending Oct.15th 2016, all performers of every medium and genre are welcomed in an annual open cyber audition. What does this mean? It means if you have ever wanted to be on stage during a Kalya Scintilla set this is your chance to work with both Kalya Scintilla and Eve Olution to be a part of next year’s full live stage show production.
Director and Storyteller , Eve Olution, welcomes performers once a year from around the globe to co create intentional pieces of performance art to breathe life to the already richly textured live journeys of Kalya Scintilla’s music. With the music and performance connected as one expression of human consciousness, both art forms are enhanced as the audience becomes entranced with the raw, authentic, transmissions of all involved.
For the past four years these two have taken countless audiences around the globe on a journey and credit much of the potency to be in the fact that they both treat the stage as an altar. There are no moments of random last minute improvisation, each performance has a story , a character and a purpose to express the intricacies of the music with precision and mastery. It is with great excitement that every year the closed performances of these sets become open for those performers willing to offer their artistry to this project.
Heed warning! Only the seriously committed need apply as this process will require devotion to art, rehearsals on remote islands, and ridiculous amounts of humor so as not to take ourselves too seriously inside this wild and zany troupe of players. Evokation Sacred Art is the name of this theatre collective with many styles of performance beyond dance, cirque, or fire which normally decors our festival stages. This troupe will be opting to highlight spoken word, ritual theatre, inspired butoh styles, and other forms of story telling to give dimension and textures outside what our audiences may be used to. After all isn’t that one of the wonderful reasons we love art? Because it pushes us out of our comfort zone and if we are lucky, for a moment, takes us into touching the unknown?
