Participate in Clifford Owens' Performance at the BMA
The renowned artist Clifford Owens is now accepting audition videos from teens (ages 16-19) of African descent and all genders who were born in Baltimore and currently live in the City.
Owens, who was born and raised in Baltimore, will select two candidates to perform a text-based performance art score with him for approximately 20 minutes at the BMA on December 12. A required rehearsal will be held on December 11. The performance involves interpreting a "score," or loose set of instructions, together with Owens and a fellow performer through improvised movement and vocalizations in the Museum.
The artist is looking for individuals who bring intensity, seriousness, and willingness to explore a performance tradition that may be unfamiliar. Successful candidates will have experience memorizing dialogue and feel confident as a vocalist in a public setting. Vocalists and performers from all genres, including spoken word, hip hop, and rap, are encouraged to apply. No acting or theatrical experience necessary.
Participants will receive a $350 honorarium.
- Using the form below, submit a video of yourself—under 5 minutes—singing a capella or bars, reciting poetry or prose, performing an art score, etc.
- Submissions must be received by Friday, November 22, 2019.
- .MOV and .MP4 formats are preferred.
