'BLACK CONFERENCE' – NOTICE EXPIRES FEB. 17 - Falconworks Theater Company is seeking talent for Black Conference, an inter-active experience conceived by Falconworks Theater Company, and inspired by the book “Collective Courage” by Dr. Jessica Gordon Nembhar. The show is set in the late-Depression era world of 1939. New Deal legislation to mitigate the impacts of a crippled economy has failed and often explicitly excluded black Americans. Alternative measures are desperately needed. Throughout the course of the show, audience members, along with actors as “conference attendees”, strategize with civil rights icons Ella Baker, Gwendolyn Brooks, W.E.B. DuBois, Zora Neal Hurston, Martin Luther King Sr., A. Philip Randolph, Thurgood Marshall, Bayard Rustin, Hazel Scott and other powerful advocates of cooperative economics for “the Advancement of Colored People." See additional materials for a more detailed description and more information about the production. Cooperative training will be held Apr. 2-6 (12noon-3pm); rehearsals run Apr. 7-May 13 (Saturdays and Sundays, flex schedule between 10am-9pm), plus additional weekday evening rehearsals (4pm-9pm) will begin May 14; tech rehearsals run May 21-23 (4pm-11pm); Brooklyn NY performances will run May 24-29; Pittsburgh PA performance will occur on a date TBD between June 7-10. The bulk of production activities will be held in Red Hook, Brooklyn NY. Pays a $250 stipend for company members. Company members will receive technical support for mounting future productions from Falconworks Theater Company. Theater company states: "Adding an additional layer of reality to the project, Falconworks Theater Company will form a functioning cooperative for Black Conference. Collaborators will go through a training period in cooperative economics—Falconworks Artistic Director, Reg Flowers, has several years of experience as a cooperative developer—and become the collective owners of the final production. Falconworks Theater Company has outlined some parameters for the production, including presenting the work in Brooklyn and at the 23rd Annual Pedagogy and Theater of the Oppressed Conference in Pennsylvania, both in spring of 2018. Company members will share responsibility for marketing and raising a portion of the financing." Seeking—“John R. Johnson” (Supporting): Male, 60. Actor must play piano and sing. A singer, composer, and musical theater performer. He has a joy for life, despite grief over the death of his brother James Weldon, who was Executive Secretary of the NAACP. His song “Lift Every Voice and Sing” is considered the Black National Anthem. Looks for the “silver lining;" “Bayard Rustin” (Lead): Male, 25. A New York City nightclub singer and civil rights activist. "A young brown-skinned man, sleek and athletic." Openly gay. Seeking talent from Brooklyn NY. Theater company states: "The audition process for this show will be unique in that we are both looking for a talented group of actors and those who might serve in a cooperative touring company that, if established, would be collectively managed by the actors and production staff. Actors must demonstrate not only talent and ability to portray a character, but also demonstrate a desire to work in a collective, an aptitude for leadership and management, and a willingness to commit to the process. Actors will portray—sometimes without the benefit of scripted lines—the brightest political and literary thinkers in American history. Actors will be intimate with the biographies of these well-known historic figures and be able to answer deeply probing questions. Company members will also be able to accurately discuss the theory of cooperative economics and other political theories of the period. Before beginning the audition/interview process we ask interested parties to select the two characters for whom they are auditioning. Conduct basic research on both characters and be prepared to discuss why they are appropriate for the roles. Also, candidates must understand cooperative economy basics (we highly recommend you read 'Collective Courage' by Jessica Gordon Nembhard). You might also visit the web site for the U.S. Federation of Worker Cooperatives (https://usworker.coop/what-is-a-worker-cooperative/). Read the complete Black Conference Audition Process: Phase 1: Audition Actors should prepare two contrasting monologues from plays set in the 1920 - 1940s, preferably from the African American catalog of plays. Please prepare 16 bars from a song and be prepared to sing a Capella. Each candidate will be given 5 minutes; Phase 2: Call Backs (Call backs may be held on the same day as your audition). Actors will submit to an in-character "interrogation" by a group on topics relevant to the play (cooperative economics and civil rights). They will also be questioned about their "personal lives"—meaning the personal life of the character. This exercise will be used to gauge both the actor’s facility to research an historic character and show improvisational skills. Each candidate will be given 5 minutes; Phase 3: Interviews (Interviews may be held on the same day as your audition). Candidates will be interviewed to determine their interest in being part of a cooperative touring company. Be able to discuss your plan for managing the time commitment and what, if any, additional leadership and/or management skills you would bring to a business as a co-owner. This interview will take approximately 10 minutes. Disclaimer: Falconworks Theater Company has committed its organizational resources to the production and mounting of the play Black Conference, the Brooklyn run from May 24 through May 28, 2018 and the presentation at the Pedagogy and Theater of the Oppressed Conference at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, on a date to be determined between June 7 and June 10, 2018. Falconworks Theater Company will be training the touring company on cooperative economics and will help develop the company as a cooperative venture run by its participants, if desired. Subsequent cooperative engagements would be subject to the decision of the cooperative. It will be the responsibility of all participants to inform themselves of the potential risks involved in starting a cooperative venture.
