Contact: Alishiya@wisefoolnm.org with any questions
Q: Do you want to see a full act or a quick demonstration of what I can do?
A: You have 5-7 minutes to give us an idea of the kind of artist you are in relation to your chosen apparatus / skill. We will be looking for artistry, technical ability, presence, quality of movement, and your ability to connect with the audience (in this case, us!). Please use your time slot in whatever way you think will best help us understand what you do.
Q: I am unable to be at the audition in Santa Fe, but I’d still like to audition! Can I send in an audition tape?
A: Yes. Please email 2-3 videos of your performances to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, February 24, and we will consider you. (Sooner is better!) Please also include a video of a brief physical improvisation on the themes laid out in the concept section above. We are happy to consider you, but please keep in mind that your presence at the audition is strongly encouraged.
Q: I would like to show you multiple skills at my audition. Will I have enough time?
A: Please let us know what you would like to show us and whether you are able to audition with multiple skills in a row, and we will allow extra time for you. Ex: I have prepared a juggling act and a trapeze act and can audition with them both in the same time slot.
Q: I am auditioning as part of a duo/trio/group. Is that ok?
A: Yes, please just let us know. You will not be allowed extra time for group acts unless you will be showing us multiple skills. (see previous Q&A above)
Q: I am a local artist but I’m unable to be at the audition. Could I come in another time?
A: We may be able to work with you. Please contact us!
Q: It is difficult to set up the equipment I need to show you my act. How can I audition?
A: Please send us a video of an act using your apparatus. You will still be given an audition slot so you can come in and we can meet you.
