Performance Opportunity at UO!

Seeking Performers

My name is Rachel Carrico—I am new to town and looking for dancers, physically expressive actors, and movers of all kinds to perform in a new piece that I am creating this fall to perform on a shared bill with Shannon Mockli. Dear Monica (working title) re-visits the year 1998, when the Clinton/Lewinsky scandal saturated the news, in order to understand the present moment, in which sexual assault is becoming more visible in the public eye while the first woman in U.S. history—Clinton herself—vies for the presidency. By the time this piece is shown, we will have elected our next president, and no matter who it is, my hope for the performance is that it will create a space to engage with some of these issues in a thoughtful, human, and even sometimes humorous context.

 Dates and time commitment: 

  • Tentative performance date: Friday, Nov. 18 at 7 PM in the Dougherty Dance Theatre at the U of O.
  • Rehearsal schedule: Start the first week of October and meet roughly 2-3 times per week, based on your availability. No rehearsals Oct. 31-Nov. 6. Please reserve the evenings during the week of the performance for extra rehearsals, tech, etc.

If you are interested, please contact me at or at 618-420-0979.
