CITY OPERA AUDITIONS IN SEPTEMBER

City Opera Vancouver, a constituent member of the Community Arts Council of Vancouver, is pleased to announce auditions for its next main-stage production, THE LOST OPERAS OF MOZART / 2016.
 
These are three that Mozart (then in his early 20s) began but never finished. Two are Italian comedies, and the third a German romance. Our project is a reconstruction, telling three stories in one event -- with one cast, one orchestra, in three evenings of laughter and joy.
A producer is sitting in a darkened theatre, contemplating his next project. To his astonishment, the Gates of Limbo open and out come come ghosts, lost souls who have been waiting 200 years to be born.
 
They beg the producer for life, and for a chance to sing. They have been rehearsing for 200 years and, unfortunately, squabbling as well. The producer agrees, but on one condition...

This September, as part of the Vancouver Fringe Festival, Theatre Terrific invites you to join them at BEING Animal – a large scale, site specific show featuring a 10+ person cast, puppets, choral work, dance and live music. BEING Animal addresses why it is vital for us as human beings to collaborate and ultimately repatriate ourselves as good citizens of the natural world in order to survive as a species.  It makes us look, listen and reassess what we have deemed as ‘present’ - as ‘being’ - in this world.  What voices have we forgotten?  What fellow citizens have we ignored?  What can we do?  We are animal.

It features a large inclusive ensemble of all abilities, including actors with physical, mental and developmental challenges. The creative team includes Sabrina Evertt (Costume Coordinator), Tim Gosley (Puppet Designer; Sesame Park, Fraggle Rock, & The Muppets), and Angelo Moroni (Musician; Water & I Love Mondays) with stage management by Miranda Sandberg (Three Tall Women [Western Gold] & The Three Cornered Hat [Mascall Dance]).

Papergirl
The Roundhouse | Exhibition Hall

Cost Free

Event Details

Art should be accessible to everyone. That is the spirit behind Papergirl, the pedal-powered project that combines art, philanthropy and bikes. Papergirl is an international art movement that started as a redefinition of street art, bringing together artists of all levels, ages and backgrounds from all over the globe. Papergirl is driven by volunteers and brings out the spirit of giving and sharing for everyone involved.

All art collected will be exhibited at the Roundhouse. Papergirl volunteer cyclists will then set out across the city along a secret route to deliver all the works directly into the hands of unsuspecting members of the public. It’s the art of giving art.

Visit our website www.papergirlvancouver.com to learn more about the project, upcoming workshops and events, and how you can get involved.

THANK YOU TO ALL OF THE ARTISTS WHO CONTRIBUTED THIS YEAR!
WHAT YOU CAN SUBMIT

Medium: The artwork can be anything from drawings, digital art, photography, prints, sketches, poetry, zines, stickers, and textiles. You know all those amazing images you have sitting on your computer from your travels or those sketches you have piling up under your bed? Those are PERFECT for Papergirl so think about donating them : )

Quantity: You can submit up to 20 originals, prints, photos, copies, etc. that you like and we encourage you to send multiples of your work so it can be put into multiple art rolls. Please note that will might not be able to display all your work in the exhibition, but we will make sure it gets out into the hands of the public!

Content: We don't want to cramp your style or censor you, but remember that your work will find its way into the hands of a stranger, so keep it free of any advertisements or any racist, sexist, or otherwise overtly offensive and derogatory content.

Must be Flexible: We roll up all of the art, so it must be made of a material that can be rolled or folded. We also have to be able to carry these while on bikes, so keep that in mind when thinking of size.

It Must be Dry and Fixed: We are open to whatever medium you choose to use, but please send us work that is totally dry and fixed. This means all paint, glue, charcoal, pastels, graphite, glitter, confetti, etc. We hate to see your work get smudged from handling, or torn because it's sticking to itself or other pieces of art. Make sure any excess medium is shaken off and/or fixed on.

It Must be Yours: All art donated by YOU must be made by YOU!

Sign Your Work: We encourage the people that receive the art to contact the artist, and often they do! In fact we have even had artists get work commissioned by the person who received the work. So please be sure to put your name on the back of your work, and make sure it's legible. 

If you have a website, Instagram, or Twitter, feel free to include those as well. If you wish to remain anonymous, that's ok too.
