Open Auditions: Body Monologues 2016

Are you a poet? A spoken word artist? A singer?

A dancer? An actor? Or just someone who has something you want to say?

Auditions now open for The Body Monologues!

Wednesday, April 6
& Wednesday, April 27
PSAC Building (233 Gilmour Street)
from 6pm to 9pm

We are looking for people who want to tell their own unique story about what it is like to live in their bodies in our body-obsessed culture. All types of performances are desired: spoken word, monologues, rants, songs, dances, short skits and more!

Performances will be 3-5 minutes in length.

The Body Monologues provides a platform for women (cis and trans)/non-binary to share their diverse experiences and stories focused on body image, embodiment, and acceptance in the face of societal and media messages that tell us our worth is tied to our ability to fit the impossible ideals of beauty, ability, race, gender, age, and more.

The show will take place on June 4.

If you don’t have any writing experience, don’t worry! Once performers are chosen, they will be guided through a process of writing and performing their own original monologue. If you would like to perform in our show, send an email to to get more information and to schedule an audition slot!

The money from the tickets sold and any other fundraising activities we hold during the event will go to the Sexual Assault Support Centre of Ottawa.
