“We’ve reached 4 years of 1MPF in Cincinnati, at a cultural and political moment in our nation that is full of strife, uncertainty, and a feeling that we are more divided than ever,” says Dominic D’Andrea, Producing Artistic Director of 1MPF. “Unsurprisingly, it’s also a moment when we’ve seen a huge uptick of participation of artists and community members in Cincinnati for 1MPF, looking for a space to express themselves and commune with others. Making theatre and holding space for the community is an act of love and a political act in and of itself—more now that ever before.”

“Know Theatre loves hosting this Festival; we relish any opportunity to be a catalyst for new works, and we especially love how many local artists get to come and play when we play with the One-Minute Play Festival,” says Know Theatre Associate Artistic Director Tamara Winters. “Each year we have worked with 1MPF, our local artistic community has come out swinging, creating some truly unforgettable moments and surprising artistry – it’s one of the highlights of the summer theatre season, and we’re delighted to bring it to Cincinnati again this year!”

Casting Call for 3rd Annual Cincinnati One-Minute Play Festival

KTC_One Minute Play Festival logoKaren O’Brien, a professional director, is looking for talent to perform in the Festival at the Know Theatre.  The One-­Minute Play Festival (#1MPF) is a grassroots community-engaged theatre festival. #1MPF is social barometer practice, which investigates local zeitgeist and narratives through dialogue, consensus building, and a performance of minute-long moments generated by each community. For more information visit: www.oneminuteplayfestival.com.

There are 6 – 10 new one-minute plays with flexible casting requirements that are diverse in race, age, gender and all frames of representation. There will be about 10-20 hours of rehearsal time in June and early July (times and dates TBD). Rehearsal time depends how many characters you are cast to portray. Alas, there is no pay for these performances.

Given that a roster of actors are needed by June 3rd, the director may make casting decisions based upon actors’ resume, headshot and list of conflicts for evening and weekend rehearsals between June 5th and July 9th rather than have actors audition.

Performances:

  • Saturday July 8th at 9a-8pm for Tech and Performance at 8P (7pm call)
  • Sunday, July 9th at 3pm (2pm call)
  • Sunday, July 9th at 8pm (7pm call)
