We will be auditioning acts for this production, scheduled to open late January, and we encourage potential dancers to submit a concept for audition as follows:
- Your act must be suitable for a Victorian or steampunk circus, and should focus on magical, illusion and/or exotic. We will consider dance acts, but we also want illusionists, acrobats, contortionists, animal tamers, trapeze artists and similar
- Your act must be set and costumed entirely in black, white, and grey. You can use any flesh, black, white, or grey skin, and any hair colour. Props including animals should be within the colour palette. Avatars, costumes, props and equipment must be of very high quality and realism.
- You must be willing to work with the production team to ensure your act is of very high quality, including preferably allowing the staging team to rez your sets and equipment to ensure a tight and fast flowing production.
IMPORTANT: Please do not purchase or build equipment for this production until your audition has been approved.
Additionally, please note that we are not seeking to recreate The Night Circus, and will not be filling roles from the book. This production is an homage that imagines if that circus existed and how it would play, but you do not need to have read the book to participate.
You can present your concept by notecard to Chryblnd Scribe inworld or Word document attached to email - firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include links to music and costumes and a short description of what your act would be and what (if any) experience you have had with dance entertainment in the virtual world of Second Life.
Please submit your concept by December 13th, 2013,and be ready to audition on or around December 28th.
These auditions are open to any Second Life Resident as invited by our selection panel, and their decision will be final.
We are very keen to encourage auditions from across the grid. Please contact chryblnd Scribe by email - email@example.com - or inworld IM if you have any queries, our plan is to help as much as possible so that we get the very best acts for this production.
We have an FAQ notecard, some costume ideas and more information available inworld on request. Please do not send offline IMs, use notecards or email to avoid your message being lost.
