Part of New York-based interdisciplinary artist Jeanine Oleson’s fall residency at the Hammer, Open Auditions is a chance to look at the process of working with performers from the first moment of contact between a collaborative team and process of casting itself. A small group of pre-selected performers will be present to audition as well as responding to prompts and questions as a means of making a meta-theater of this process.
Featuring Thaine H. Allison, Jr., Olivia Cristina Delgado, Kiara Gamboa, Sharon Chohi Kim, Angelina Prendergast, Austen Rey, Sana Sepehri, Riley Shanahan, and Patricia A. Smith.
