About this production

The show ‘Transperceneige’ is a new narrative longform set in the dystopian world created by the comic book author Jacques Lob, and since then explored through a movie and series both called ‘Snowpiercer’.

The themes explored will be a dark and sometimes violent post-apocaliptic world, in a class-based society. It will focus on exploring staging, and a theatrical approach to acting the stories.

We are looking for a diverse cast of improvisers, as well as one or two musicians that will be fully part of the cast.

For the stage improvisers
If you are excited about the theme and unsure if you would fit, please apply anyways as we are looking for a variety of players. If you are an experienced scripted actor and wishes to participate to an improvised theatre production, please apply as well.

For the musicians
If you are already an improv musician, feel free to apply. If you are an experienced musician without prior experience with improv, your application is also more than welcome, as we want to expend our community and train musicians in the style of Flock Theatre.

 

About Flock Theatre Productions

Flock Theatre productions are shows where Laura & Gael cast players for a weekend of shows in a particular genre. The cast will rehearse weekly for approx. 3 months on Wednesday mornings from 10:00 to 12:00, led by the director (Gael).

The Flock Theatre style of shows is theatrical. We love making theatrical improv that makes audiences feel something. We commit to the work and find joy in geeking about this art form.

As this is not a course but a production, there is no course fee involved. Players are expected to be there for all rehearsals and shows (in the form on the website you can let us know if you already know you cannot make it 1 or max. 2 rehearsals).

You can sign up for either of these audition dates*:

  • Wednesday 14th of December 10:00-12:00
    or
  • Wednesday 14th of December 17:00-18:30

Location: Huis van de Wijk De Meeuw, Motorwal 300 in Amsterdam.

What will happen in the audition

In this audition, improvisers/actors/musicians with experience are invited to join the exercises and scene setups that the director (Gael) will offer. No need to prepare, just show up (on time :)).

Our auditions are intended to be a pleasant experience, where you actually learn something and have a good time.

A few days after the auditions the performers who got selected will get an invitation. Once accepted, the other improvisers from the audition will be informed as well.

The audition and the rehearsals take place in Huis van de Wijk De Meeuw, which is a wheelchair-accessible space. ♿ If you have any other accessibility needs, don’t hesitate to let us know.

 

Does it cost anything?

Taking part in the audition is free of charge.

 

Who can audition?

Anyone with some experience in improvising or acting, as well as any experienced musicians. We love meeting new faces, unexpected talents, and a diversity of players. 👩🏾‍🦱👩‍🦽🧕🏽🌈👳🏻‍♂️🦾🦻🧠🤶
(Yes, we have cast players that we met at the audition for the first time.)

Once cast, performers are asked to do research, homework and/or promotion of the show. This will take max. 0,5-1 hour a week, and is usually considered fun to do. If you take part in the audition, you agree that -when cast- you will make time for this.

 

What about the rehearsals?

Wednesday mornings 10:00-12:00, between the 11th of Jan and the 5th of Apr. There will be no rehearsals on the 25th of January and the 1st of March.

Please note that this production will be rehearsing weekly during day-time, on Wednesday mornings, and not in the evenings as the former productions did.

There are 10 rehearsals and an aftermath session. If you cannot make it to 1 or max. 2, please let us know in the form.
Lastly, this may seem obvious but you need to be available for both show dates 26th and 29th of March. 😉
