A call from our friend, Roseann Lake (Contact her at WeChat: meiguibj).

Calling all actors, male and female, seasoned or completely new to theater!

召集所有演员, 男的女的, 对戏剧有经验没经验的都欢迎!

At the end of July 2014, we'll be staging China's first-ever rendition of the "Leftover Monologues." Structured similarly to the "Vagina Monologues," (don't worry if you've never heard of or seen that play), ours is a play uniting a dozen or so brazen Chinese (and foreign) voices in a stirring evening of entertainment and insight into the complexities of love, sex, marriage and relationships in China - with an emphasis on the unrealistic societal pressures/expectations that accompany all of the above.

20147月底,我们将会奉上中国”剩下的独白”的首次演出。它和”阴道独白”的结构类似,(别担心你从来没有听过或看过那个表演)。我们这次演出致力于在一个激动人心的晚上联合约12个胆子够大的中国(或外国)人的声音、来深刻理解在中国社会爱情、性、婚姻、亲密关系与不现实的社会压力、期望之间的复杂关系。

How we plan to pull this off:

A stunning theatrical venue in central Beijing has already very graciously agreed to host us, and we've been drumming up suspense with our local and foreign media partners. We have a solid sketch of how we'd like the narrative of our play to evolve, and now we've finally gotten to the most critical part - actively recruiting the talent we need to infuse this play with feeling and searing zeitgeist!

关于演出:

该剧将在北京中心一家极好的舞台剧场上演,本土与外媒也将与我们合作。关于故事开展我们已有明确具体的概念,目前正是准备剧目所需最最重要的那个部分――我们正积极的招募我们需要的人才,为这场演出注入我们希望传达的感觉和灼热的时代精神。

How it works:

In conjunction with our director, you choose a topic or story that you'd like to deliver a 7-12 minute monologue about. That's right - you, the stage, a spotlight, and a captive audience. (Think of this like a TED talk, but with more dramatic lighting and a razzling rooftop BBQ after party). The topic or story you choose to tell should be loosely centered around love, sex, relationships, marriage, and societal pressure/expectations with regards to those, though we are very open to hearing your ideas. A topic or story that makes your blood boil, or your heart soar - we're open to it all.

试镜:

和我们的导演协调,你选择一个主题或者故事来表现一个7-12分钟的独白。没错--你,舞台,聚光灯和被吸引的观众。(把这个想象成一个TED talk,但多了更戏剧化的灯光和包括屋顶BBQ的余兴派对)。虽然我们很愿意听你自己的想法,但你选择的主题或故事需要围绕爱,性,关系,婚姻,社会压力/期待。一个让你热血沸腾或让你心灵振动的主题或故事--我们都很欢迎。

After you've told us about your topic and we've worked together to weave it into the larger scope of our play, you take all the creative liberties you'd like to prepare your "monologue.” Rehearsals will primarily take place independently, though as production time nears, we'll practice together to iron out any remaining creases. (We know talented people are all very busy, so we promise not to take up much of your time). Then, come the end of July, we'll piece all of the stories together for...showtime!

在你告诉我们你的主题之后并且我们一起尽力把它融入我们的演出之后,你可以用你所有的创意来准备你的独白。排演都主要是分开的,虽然随着演出时间将近,我们会一起练习剩余的部分。(我们知道有才能的人都很忙,所以我们保证不会占用您太多的时间)。所以,7月底来吧,我们会为了正式演出把所有故事都凑在一起。

*Please note: if you like the idea of contributing a topic or story but are a bit stage shy, do not despair! Prefer to perform incognito? We have an abundant supply of over-sized hats and stage makeup. We are also happy to accept a monologue that you suggest or prepare, then assign an actor to perform it for you. True stories or those loosely based on reality are all fair game.*

*特别提示:如果你有好想法、话题或故事想要与我们分享但怕会在舞台上怯场,也不要担心!更想使用化名表演?我们有的是大号的帽子和专属舞台的妆扮给你打造理想的舞台形象。我们也愿意接受你提议或准备好的独白,指定演员将其表演出来。真实故事和基于现实的创作我们都欢迎。
