Crave Audition Notice

We are currently holding Auditions for performers for our upcoming production of Sarah Kane's Crave. Please click through for more details.

Pure Carbon and Crave Collective present

Sarah Kane’s Crave

at the 2018 Toronto Fringe Festival

July 4th-15th, 2018


Crave uses non-linear, poetic text. The author does not provide context, stage directions or descriptions of characters and interpretation is left entirely up to the company. Four different bodies occupying one life – the voices describe their desires, remember losses in the past, and question their future in the face of their psychological damage.


We’re looking for artists who are comfortable with movement and devising in a collaborative setting. We are casting all four roles. Artists of all ages, genders, ethnic and cultural identities are encouraged to submit. Equity and Non-Equity members welcome to audition.


This is a profit-share opportunity. The show runs July 4th-15th, 2018 as a part of the Toronto Fringe Festival. Rehearsals will take place twice a week beginning in May (Sunday evenings and 1 variable weekday morning).


Please email us at with a headshot and resume, and indicate your preferred audition date.
