Open Call Auditions May 17-19, 2018
Rorschach will lead a collaboration with five other theatre companies from across the city to create a limited run event featuring 6 new 10-minute plays. The project focuses on networking and opportunity by pairing theatre leadership with artists new to their companies. Additionally, the project embraces the metaphor of the inkblot test by having all six plays inspired by just two prompts. How will each company’s aesthetic influence the storytelling? Play-creation teams, each mentored by an artistic leader of a different theatre company, will be assembled via an open call for actors, playwrights and directors.
This reenvisioning of our Klecksography program was based on the results of a DC theatre survey undertaken by Rorschach in the fall of 2017. More than 40 local artistic directors and producers responded in addition to dozens of freelance artists. Based on those results, we’ve invited other companies into our process and rebuilt the program to focus on networking and connection. By providing producers with a high-impact, low-investment way to vet new artists, we aim to close the gap many artists experience in trying to connect with new companies.
