Text For Audition: Macbeth
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,

the coop, so named to encompass a creative cocoon or incubator, is a performance collective for professional artists to research, develop and perform original works of physical theatre. It aims to support artistic growth of emerging New Brunswick artists through training and performance opportunities. The coop was conceived out of a growing need to create, nurture and support the wealth of emerging NB performance artists through access to meaningful creative process and collaboration.
