Be a part of Performance Space 122’s 30th Anniversary Season by auditioning for roles in Dominic Huber’s Hotel Savoy and Ishmael Houston-Jones’s THEM. Hotel Savoy, a world premiere that was highlighted in the recent New York Times feature ‘Theatre for Audiences of One’, will be performed at the Goethe-Institut on Thursdays from September 30th through October 31st. THEM, which premiered in 1986, will be remounted from October 21st through October 30th at PS 122. The casting call information is below.
Dominic Huber’s Hotel Savoy – Casting Call for non-actors:
Looking for 5 individuals to guide patrons through 1014 5th Avenue, a six-floor mansion located directly across from the Metropolitan Museum. This project is an exploration of space and memory; it is a slice of the diversity of New York; it is a series of real conversations in a frame of experience. We are searching for individuals who consider themselves near or exactly how the characters are described. Some theatrical experience and an appreciation of the arts is a plus, but we are not seeking professional actors.
The ‘characters’ are as follows:
The Bartender Female. Age 40s-60s.
Elevator Operator Male. Age 40-60s.
The Girl Female. Age 15-19.
The Clerk Male. Age 25-45.
The Haircutter Male. Age 30-50.

Auditions for THEM, conceived and directed by Ishmael Houston-Jones
Are you a boy, do you like to dance, are you fearless, do you want to perform at both the New Museum and Performance Space 122 in the same month? How do you feel about dancing with a dead goat? Be a part of this historic reconstruction, 25 years later.
For this revival of THEM we are looking for 6 MALE PERFORMERS who are strong DANCE IMPROVISERS and who are not afraid of on-stage INTIMACY and VIOLENCE.
Following an intense 4-week rehearsal/development period at the New Museum, THEM will run at PS 122 October 21 – October 30.
The audition will be held at the New Museum on Saturday, September 11th from 11 AM to 2 PM with call-backs the same day from 4 to 6 PM.
