Audition Dates for Entity’s 2022 Spring Production

We are happy to announce the audition dates for Entity’s 2022 Spring Production of

‘Constellations’ by Nick Payne

Produced by Katrin Fegert
Directed by Makrand Mujumdar (aka Mak)

About the Play

A constellation is a group of stars that appears to form a pattern or picture. There are 88 official constellations and millions more yet to be discovered. Our life is also nothing but a constellation of various moments and we only know the one that we live and experience. Imagine the same moment in a different constellation other than the one that you are in, sounds complicated? Our 2022 spring production of ‘Constellations’ brings this imagination of wonderful worlds of possibilities into reality. Ever wondered if you had said No instead of Yes, what would have happened? Would your life be the same? Unfortunately, this we will never find out, but the two characters in ‘Constellations’ get to live their life in multiple universes, crossing the boundary of time and space. And experience multiple lives as they progress in their life.

This spellbinding, romantic journey begins with a simple encounter between the two characters. But what happens next defies the boundaries of the world we think we know—delving into the infinite possibilities of their relationship and raising questions about the difference between choice and destiny.

Characters

The play has 2 characters and NOT 2 actors. Even though the original play is centered around a conventional couple (man and woman), we plan to take a bit of a different approach. Hence we have not defined the gender of the characters. The 2 characters will be played by more than 2 actors.

Character 1/Roland- A Bee Keeper (age 25 to 55)
Character 2/Mariane- A Cosmologist (age 25 to 55)

Covid Rules

As you are aware, the covid situation is getting worse day-by-day. We would like to ensure a safe environment for the workshop and hence we will be following the 2G Plus rule. It means, you need to be fully vaccinated (min 2 weeks before the workshop date) or provide a valid documentation of successful recovery from covid-19 infection. And you need to provide an official rapid test confirmation on the day of the workshop 

Date and Time

Some of you will be invited for a call-back session. Please mark your calendars and make sure you can attend it.

Requirements

Please take the following requirements into account when auditioning:

1.    The play asks a lot from the actors. Both the roles are very challenging, and we need actors who can commit 100% throughout the rehearsal process and during the performances, we understand we all have our personal and professional commitments, hence it’s important that you are aware of the expectations from our side.

2.    You must commit to all performances, and tech rehearsals. If you cannot attend any of these dates, sadly, we will not cast you in the play. Nevertheless, please consider getting involved in the production team and help us make the play a success.

3.    All the characters in the play are on stage throughout the play. So, you need to be physically fit to maintain the energy level during rehearsals and the performances.

4.    There might be a small dancing and singing sequence. Don’t worry, this will be extremely simple. You don’t need to sing or dance during the audition.

Rehearsals

Rehearsals will take place in EineWeltHaus and MUCCA between January and May 2022. Please block the doodle dates in your calendars. More information will follow after the auditions.
