Inviting Desire 2012 Auditions

That's right, all you lovers of love, seekers of sex, delighters in desire!

Dance Naked Productions is thrilled to announce there is a new Inviting Desire in the works. (for those unfamiliar with Dance Naked Productions or Inviting Desire, please go to our website at for mission statement and past show history).

We are looking to cast a new ensemble to help create the next show. Information is as follows. Questions can be directed at Eleanor O'Brien (producer/co-creator) or Allison Tigard (director).

Auditions are Saturday Oct. 8th from 10:30am-12:30,
Monday October 10th from 7-10pm.
Callbacks Tuesday October 11th from 7-10.

Inviting Desire 2012

You are invited to prepare an audition piece for Dance Naked Productions upcoming show, Inviting Desire: 2012, as well as an upcoming sketch for Coho Productions Fundraiser.

Inviting Desire is an devised ensemble production (which is a fancy way of saying the cast writes the script). The sketch will also be devised.

During the course of the rehearsal period, we will discuss, ask questions, send out surveys, improvise, write scenes and monologues, play games, brainstorm- whatever it takes to stimulate our creativity. The topic is sex. The desire is enlightenment. Better sex, more pleasure, increased openness, greater understanding - that’s the goal.

We are looking for women (yeah, I know. Sorry guys. Maybe next time) - all kinds of women - virginal and matriarchal, all shapes and sizes, colors and preferences. We are interested in your ability to tell a story, to share your fantasies (even if they never make it to the stage). Dance Naked is about vulnerability and joy. Do you know how to have a good time? Are you willing to make some sacrifices for the sake of the show (rehearsals in winter! Masturbating for material!) Are you willing to work with the idea that pleasure and sexuality are gifts from the universe and meant to be shared and enjoyed?

We will be devising and rehearsing starting almost immediately.

Audition requirements:
A sense of enjoyment
collaborative spirit
WIllingness to commit and work hard

We are looking for women who enjoy talking about, writing about and ultimately, performing a show about sex. Generally, this creates it’s own self-selection process.
That is not to say you need to be into wild, kinky, unusual sex practices to participate- a vanilla palate is a-ok, but an open mind is required.

Some theatrical experience and training is preferred, but not totally necessary. Please bring a recent headshot and resume (or your closest approximation). (If you have neither, a photo and a letter of interest will suffice).

For the audition, please prepared a three minute piece. This can be something you have written, or found in a book or play, but it must be erotic in nature. Preferably, it is something that turns you on. From the first person perspective generally works best- fantasies are great, memories told in present tense can work too.

If you have the piece memorized, fantastic. If that makes you too nervous, you can hold book, but please be very familiar with your material.

Suggestions for material can be found in Nancy Friday’s books “My Secret Garden,” “Women on Top” or any number of The Best American Erotica series.

The TIME commitment for the Coho Fundraiser Sketch is as follows
Saturday Oct. 15th 10am-12:30
Tues Oct. 18th 7pm-10
Thurs Oct. 20th 7pm-10
Sat Oct. 22 10am-12:30
Sun Oct. 23 6pm-10 (REQUIRED).

Performance: 8 minute piece performed the evening of October 24th. (MUST BE AVAILABLE).
Compensation: None (we are donating our services to help raise money for Coho theater).

Please plan to miss no more than one of these rehearsals.

Inviting Desire 2012

This is a full length show, not a sketch, and will be written from scratch by the ensemble.

TIME COMMITMENT: Rehearsals will be 2-4X a week from October 15th through December, and then 5X a week in January (exact dates to be determined by cast preference and availability).

**Ensemble will be responsible for outside reading and writing as well as rehearsal time.**

The show will run from Feb.9-26, with shows Thurs-Sun, as well as additionaly shows Feb 13th and 14th.

Comensation: $500 + a percentage of Actor Benefit door sales.

Please be willing to miss no more than two rehearsals in this time period (unless other agreements have been made with producers and director).

Looking forward to meeting you!

Eleanor O'Brien
