Interstella Poster

Group dance auditions for upcoming MN Fringe show Interstella 5555: A Daft Punk Discovery, a performance that brings Daft Punk’s 2001 album Discovery to life on stage.

Audition: Tuesday, June 4
5:00-5:45pm or 5:45-6:30pm

TU Dance Center, Studio 1

Daft Punk was a French electronic music duo formed in 1993 in Paris by Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo. Their album Discovery came with a feature-length animated film titled “Interstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem” in which four alien musicians are kidnapped from their home planet by an American record producer who disguises them as humans and forces them to perform for the masses. The story involves no dialogue and is accompanied solely by the album’s music. The use of Daft Punk’s film “Interstella 5555” and album Discovery blend synergistically to prompt the audience questions about humanity, intergalactic relations, capitalism, the music industry, and the price of fame.

Seeking dancers, movers, actors, and performers alike who are excited about music, performance, and unconventional storytelling. Come ready to move in a group audition. If you would like to audition but neither of these dates work for you, please contact me via the email below and send in a video audition!
