What is talk?

Talk = verbal animation, a rhetorical vibration exloring/exploding i) what and how artists know what they know ii) what audiences know about artists and what artists know iii) how any of us talks about the forces that form our minds and souls and iv) what we really just don't know and cant' say about each other...

Words from Erik (the director) for all you auditioners out there:
"Greetings! Welcome to Talk auditions! All pretty simple. Nothing to prepare... Read the play, pick a character. Audition with just one side (familiarize yourself with it, but you don't have to memorize) - the character you read for will be taken as representative - you'll be put into consideration for various roles. Thanks!"

Sides, incidentally, are currently available in the Becker (the theatre department's library across the hall from Lyman 211).
