Casting out to sea

Updated: Jun 22, 2021


The Wiyot Tribe in collaboration with Dell'Arte International is seeking Native American actors interested in being a part of Things You Know But Cannot Explain, an original, site-specific play premiering at the Mad River Festival, Blue Lake, Ca. in June, 2020.

The collaboratively written performance will be based on the life and art of nationally recognized contemporary artist Rick Bartow (1946-2016), a painter, sculptor, musician, Vietnam veteran and descendant of the Mad River Band of the Wiyot Tribe.

We are seeking to fill the lead role of Rick Bartow: 30s-50s, male. We are also seeking to fill puppeteer/ensemble roles.

Rehearsals begin May 11th, 2020. Performances are June 18th-28th, 2020. Rehearsals and performances are fully-compensated.

Please contact Associate Artistic Director Zuzka Sabata at or call 707-834-0357 by March 25th, 2020
