See You See, the third original performance event in our Dolce Revolution Project series had two sold-out performances and generated active audience discussion. This was a walk-through performance that played with notions of voyeurism, exhibitionism and privacy as we grapple with a sense of self and place in an ever-watchful society…  


We are incredibly grateful for the ability to share this work, and the incredible response we received.

See You See Premiered Wednesday, December 10th and Friday, December 12th, 2014 @ 7pm at The Arts Club of Washington

Program Description:
"What is the true process of self-actualization? Do we have to repeat mistakes in order to finally stop making them? How can we have the best relationship with another if we do not yet have a sense of our best self?

Hosted by Morpheus (enigmatic wedding planner and Greek god of the dreamworld) and using the historic Arts Club of Washington as a setting, DREAM WEDDING is a walk-through, immersive theatrical experience that uses character-archetypes from Jungian psychology as well as Eastern mythological symbolism to take the audience (wedding guests) on a journey through a bride's dreamscape...and perhaps our collective unconscious."

Casting Call

The 2nd Dolce Revolution Project will be a multi-setting mixed-media performance at The Arts Club of Washington's historic Monroe House.

The ability to move well is important for all roles, so dance experience is helpful but not required.


Audition Dates:

Wednesday March 6th, 3 - 7pm
Wednesday March 13th, 3 - 7pm 

Additional dates/times may be added. 


To schedule an audition, please email dolcerevolution@fabum.org with a headshot and resume (or a picture and brief description of your prior experience). 


Actors will have the option of a 1-2 minute prepared monologue or a cold-reading. While unpaid, there will be a small stipend after the performances. Transportation reimbursement is also possible. 

***The roles:
  • The Event Planner/Morpheus (MALE or FEMALE, any age): an androgynous and ethereal character who plays 'host' to the evening, but is also a spiritual entity that goes between dimensions/time.
  • The Bride (FEMALE, 20-35): statuesque, elegant woman who is conflicted on the evening of her wedding...dance experience helpful.
  • The Groom/'The Self' (MALE, 20-35): debonaire, intelligent man who is in love with his bride-to-be, but who also has a past...
  • Best man/'The Shadow' (MALE, 20-35): clever, funny and a little hard-edged...exudes sexuality and wants a carefree lifestyle. 
  • The Three Goddesses (FEMALE, 20-65+): THREE different women to play goddesses, each representing a different Chakra, as well as mother, daughter, and wife.
  • Anima (MALE, 20-35): represents femininity and all its mysteries and allows a man to relate with or understand women.
  • Animus (FEMALE, 20-35): the same as Anima - with gender roles reversed.
  • Piano Player (MALE, any age): must be able to play for up to 90 minutes from sheet music while occasionally interacting with audience members - ideally we are looking for 'Sam' from Casablanca, but are somewhat flexible with the character.
