Student Auditions

Auditions for the Theatre and Dance department’s fall dance concert, Two Truths and a Lie, are on Thursday, Sept. 14, 2023. The concert is directed by guest artist Alexandra Beller, and you can learn more about her work here: alexandrabeller.com.


The audition will be led by Professor of Dance, Renee Archibald—in collaboration with Alexandra—to cast three separate pieces, which will rehearse intensively (every day for 1–2 weeks) for short periods over the Fall semester. Additional bi-weekly rehearsals will be scheduled in between intensives. The work is political, collaborative, physical and theatrical, and will be built as an ensemble, where individuality, authenticity, consent, fun and risk are prioritized and valued. Students will be asked to both build upon and release old ways of moving and engage in both creating and learning movement and text. The final works are committed to creating vivid, evocative, and sometimes confrontational work that moves the needle of social justice, personal embodiment and collective freedom. And you’ll have a ton of fun in the process!


Thursday, September 14, 7–8:30 p.m.


The Dance Studio (located on Boyer Ave)
