“Carnivale Night” is wrapped until next time

Pollocks Process 01

Zero Untitled’s 90th production “Carnival Night” had its one-day run! The event which was held at Youga Yoga was a collection of short works both new and old. The night featured three events:

“Pollock’s Process” – a body art piece directed and conceived by Katherine Orozco. Her piece is a body painting exercise used to embody the fluidity of the creative process by having multiple artists paint one persons canvas.

“The Mindless Men” – a revisited piece last staged twice last year. This is a pseudo online and live piece. The actors (or Mindless Men) await commands that are given ala improvisationally. The audience livestreamed from YouTube and posted commands on Facebook.

MIMES! – As it often does, the Zero Untitled mimes ran around downtown Corpus Christi doing what mimes do – mock people.

– A body painting Happening called “Pollock’s Process” (directed by Katherine Orozco)
– An auxiliary performance by Beth Marie Cantu
– A revival of “The Mindless Men” (a livestream and Facebook improv-piece)
– and a handful of mimes!

“There is No Hobby: A Defense of Theatre”

Creative Director Michael Verderber’s short essay “There is No Hobby: A Defense of Theatre” was published three months ago and was only recently discovered! The essay easily summarizes ZU’s mentality towards production and professionalism.

Read it here on “The Ghost Light” magazine’s website:

“Textual Overture” staged readings audition

Since there are always multiple projects lined up for Zero Untitled, there is no rest for the wicked – we have auditions for two short staged readings coming up.  “Textual Overture” is our poetry/live music/short play series that will be coming up on March 25th.  Two of the works presented will be given staged readings; both works have been done by ZU before, but we are starting to bring back a lot of the older works.

Michael Verderber will be directing staged readings (with minimal blocking) for two of his older plays – “Seeing is Misbelieving: The Rorschach Test” (previously staged in 2013) and “Excerpts From a Life Once Lived” (last staged in 2007).  The idea is to cast primarily newer actors, stage managers, etc and reinvent the wheel for the “Seeing…” script, and to celebrate the upcoming publication of “Excerpts From A Life Once Lived” (through Ealain Magazine) which should be released in the next few months.

Excerpts From a Life Once Lived” is the soon-to-be published drama about a virus that has wiped out 87% of the population.  Survivors tell their tales of perseverance and woe.
Seeing is Misbelieving: The Rorschach Test” is a comedic skit about students scamming a professor during his Rorschach test. We will collectively rewrite several portions of this play.

Although some precasting has already been done, the private auditions will be held on March 10th. Time and location will be announced shortly.
