Production Description

Seeking curvy/full-figured performing artists with multiple talents and skill sets to join a 501c(3) performing arts company. Artistic Director states: "Our organization is growing and constantly evolving to include the 'best of the best,' and we want your light to shine! Our company members are actively releasing debut albums, appearing on TV shows like 'The Steve Harvey Show,' WCIU's 'You and Me This Morning,' and NBC's 'The Morning Blend.' We are also engaging with runway directors from Ford and Factor modeling agencies, performing at venues all over the tri-state area, producing our own multimedia content (www.thyck.tv), singing background for Grammy Award-winning artists, and walking runways for fashion shows via the Fashion Focus Chicago and other esteemed events. But most importantly, we are a group of curvy performers who encourage, educate, and energize both ourselves and our communities! We are determined to further diversify the entertainment industry and will continue to combat the stigmas & biases that exist against the plus-sized, in both the media and the general public. If you are a curvy/full-figured woman, excel in at least three genres of art, live in the Chicago, Milwaukee, or Northwest Indiana areas, and have a passion for the arts, we are ready to see what you've got!"

Rehearsal and Production Dates & Locations

Rehearses "collective repertoire" four times min./month. Artistic Dircetor states: "All rehearsal dates are scheduled in advance for artist convenience and conflict avoidance, whenever possible."

Compensation & Union Contract Details

Artistic Director states: "Because we are a 501(c)3, we cannot guarantee compensation for all performances. Our artists-in-residence are 'volunteer entertainers,' yet monetary compensation has been provided on a case-by-case basis. Compensation can vary from clothing from fashion shows, make-up & hair products from hair/make-up shows, monetary payment, grant awards, corporate sponsorship perks, and more! Performers who are affiliated with an agency, manager or booking agent are not conflicted in participating in our organization, as we are a charity, and all performers involved are volunteering their talents and time. We are not a union, nor do we request our artists sign contracts other than release forms for video & photography purposes. Artists are also asked to sign an accountability form, to insure each performer - although a volunteer - takes their position seriously."
