The 99 project invites you to come on stage and act in an innovative play with 99 fellow actors. There is not prerequisite to join. Beginner or experienced actors are welcome.

What will be your role?

Inspired by the real life stories of people from Shanghai collected by interviewers and transformed into theater lines by writers, the roles are short and last between 30 seconds and 1 minute.

Lines will be spoken in your preferred language between French, Chinese or English. Subtitles will help a mixed audience to follow along.

You will belong to a group (random allocation) and the casting of the roles will take place within the groups in a collaborative manner.

What will you learn?

Acting is not easy. 10 rehearsals are planned to guide you on your way to self-expression. They are facilitated by an Actor director to accompany your progress along the journey.

  • Gain confidence on stage and acquire an acute awareness of your body and gestures and learn how to project your voice loud and clear. (general training : 3 rehearsals)
  • Use your emotions and personal resources to build up and embody a character to believe in (build up a character: 3 rehearsals)
  • Act within a group, become precise and alert in your movements on stage and interactions with the others (acting: 3 rehearsals)

Why is your commitment important?

For beginners 6 rehearsals (2 of each kind) is a minimum to feel comfortable. Your commitment is very important to ensure the quality of the play and the dynamics of your group to make this collaborative journey an enjoyable and unforgettable experience.

 

For the moment, here is the rehearsal planning, subject to change

The detailed organization of the different groups and the location of the rehearsals will be defined in December and communicated early January. Here is the general schedule.
