The first series of workshops will be seeking a core group of dedicated performers and creators while developing trust between its members through scene-study work both in English and German (knowledge of German is not essential). DÄMMERUNG will then extend its focus into producing a “play," and then using device and artists’ input, we will deconstruct the play's content and meaning from the inside-out and the outside-in, by integrating the “audience” into the production. Contact: For more information, please visit http://www.meetup.com/Dammerung/events/191363372/ and RSVP online to obtain an audition time. Auditions will last 5-15 minutes per person.
