Artist Seeks typists for performance at DNC:
Sheryl Oring’s “I Wish to Say” typing pool will perform at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art as part of CaolinaFest, the public celebration of the first day of the 2012 Democratic National Convention. The Greensboro-based artist is looking for volunteer typists who can accurately take dictation on manual typewriters…Typists should either be experienced at secretarial work or actors who can take on the role of intense listener.
The performance will take place on Monday, Sept. 3 from 1 to 4 pm.
To be considered for a role in the project, please watch this video of related work: http://youtu.be/aKBbGlYE4AI
Then write a brief email explaining your interests, qualifications and availability to: firstname.lastname@example.org . Phone interviews will be scheduled in late August.
Typists will dress in vintage dresses or suits (cardigans suitable for men); we will provide most clothing, but please note availability of period attire in your application. We will also provide hair styling and limited makeup, as well as photo documentation of the performances.
Typists will need to be available for a two-hour preliminary meeting prior to the show (tentatively scheduled for Thursday, August 30) and for prep and performance on September 3rd beginning at 10:00 AM.
