Call for Actors: Mind’s Eye – Stories from the heart of Eeyou Istchee

Mind’s Eye Stories from the heart of Eeyou Istchee

Audition Dates:  OPEN

Description:

A Theatrical Production that will travel throughout Eeyou Istchee performing twice in each community; a performance for the community and one for each school. The Play is based on decades of research by Emily Masty with elders in Whapmagoostui and tells stories of Pikuutskuaau in a humorous and instructional way.  We look forward to providing opportunities for Eeyouch who wish to learn about the dramatic arts to take part in this production as actors or stage technicians.  ACCI is proud to offer opportunities to explore new career paths, and to honour our Elders knowledge in a new and exciting way.

ACCI is looking for talented Cree Actors (3 male / 3 female) to fill various roles in the Theatrical Production.  We are looking for actors between the ages 18 & 40.  Must have a strong sense of humour, be out-going, and posses the ability to act.   A four (4) week training will be provided in Ouje-Bougoumou  prior the start of the Theatrical Production.

These are paid positions, as well, transportation, lodging and meals will be provided.

To apply, please, send us a video via youtube or DVD to ACCI, describing why you want to be in this production.
