Dancing on a Dare – Part 1

Advertisements

I auditioned for Motus’ IN on a dare. I am a half a century old, was in a tremendously dark period of my life, and due to many explosive life changes – made the decision to take the dare and audition. I made it through the audition by the grey hair of my chinny chin chin, certain I needed to rescind my audition after it was over. A few days later I logged on to my email account to take myself off the consideration list, but I had already been cast!

I was shocked and overwhelmed, thinking this surely was a mistake. Eventually I accepted the casting. I began to take classes with the company, then the rehearsal process started. When I learned the pieces I was to be in, I nearly peed my pants; a dysfunctional mother who has marred a daughter and a woman who loses her mind to untreated bipolar disorder. These themes so closely mirrored my real life, I felt it was a sign I was in the right place. I felt that a higher power was at work on my broken soul.
