Seeking: Black Performers Teens-30s
For all of my acting folks in the house, I have an amazing opportunity for you. One of my favorite directors — Mark H. (Columbia University Directing MFA) — is working on a show giving life to the work of 1960’s Black Art Movement genius Henry Dumas. And guess what? He needs you! Especially if you are a male actor. Mark seeks versatile and committed African American performers for this ensemble storytelling production with music and movement. Details are below.
A word from the Director Mark H. :
“A few years ago, I was introduced to the writings of Henry Dumas, a relatively unknown genius of the Black Arts Movement in the 1960’s. Dumas was primarily a short fiction and poetry writer, his work spanning multiple genres and styles. I have been itching to bring some of his work to the stage, and I have decided to use this opportunity to do just that. I am not looking to rewrite his stories into dramatic form, but rather stage his works as is, with a mix of the narrative voice AND dialogue. This will be straight-up ensemble storytelling, with music, movement, and anything else we can use to bring these amazingly rich stories to life.”
