Expanse 2022 – Generations

This year, Expanse is celebrating generations and our relationships with those who have come before us and those who may follow in the paths tread before!

We are welcoming folks to share in this artistic journey!


Auditions: Lobbyist Performing Ensemble  – Emerging Performers Comfortable Exploring Site Specific, Highly Physical and Multidisciplinary work.  

This year the Lobbyist performing ensemble will be working with Sophie Healey and Expanse Outreach Coordinator Amber Borotsik to create and perform site specific pieces as a part of the Expanse Festival. 

We are seeking 4 performers to join us for Expanse 2022. This is an opportunity to join an ensemble exploring new creation practices and performing in non-traditional spaces like the Westbury Theatre Lobby (and sometimes we go outside!).  

Auditions Dates/Times:                                                                   

Friday, Jan 28th: 4pm to 8pm

Sat, Jan 29th: 11am to 3pm 

Individual Auditions will be 20 minutes in length and held online via Zoom.

Performers will be asked to:  

1) Tell us a story: It can be about anything—a dream you had, a funny experience you had at the grocery store, the first time you met your best friend… and it can be told any way you like!  We want to see what you love performing—whether that’s singing an original song, dancing, playing an instrument, a stand up comedy set, an original monologue, or any combination of the above. Give us an idea of what interests you!

2) Explore a physical improvisation:  This will be introduced in the audition and will be designed to work in small spaces. No need to prepare anything.   Just come ready to move and play. 

3) Chat with us. We’ll have a casual chat about the project and answer any questions you may have. Consider this chat as a way to get to know us as collaborators, just as we are getting to know you.
