Body Monologue Auditions

The Body-Peace Corps and MBody invite you to audition for the 2014 Body Monologues Performance in February 2014. All types of performances are desired: spoken word, monologues, rants, song, and more! Performances will be 3-5 minutes in length.

The Body Monologues (inspired by the Vagina Monologues) provides a platform for UM students to share their diverse experiences and stories focused on body image, embodiment, and acceptance in the face of societal and media messages that tell us our worth is tied to our ability to fit the impossible ideals of beauty, ability, race, gender, age, and more. This year the event will take place on Tuesday, February 4, 2014 at 7:00pm in the Mendelssohn Theatre.

If you don't have any writing experience, don't worry! You do not need to have your monologue written to audition--you can read a poem or other short work and then once participants are chosen, they will be guided through a process of writing and performing their own original monologue.

If you would like to perform in our February 2014 show, send an email to bodymonologues@umich.edu to get more information and to schedule an audition slot!
