IXION: a Theatre Ensemble


Ixion is an ensemble committed to the magic of collaboration that is live theatre. We seek storytellers of all disciplines to join us as we pursue interesting stories with unique perspectives and innovative styles. 

We are thrilled to be part of such a dynamic and diverse theatre commmunity in Lansing and would like to contribute to this wonderful mix by nurturing new work; new perspectives and reimagining the theatre experience. We hope that the myriad voices we assemble will bring a theatre that is contemporary, compelling and challenging for local audiences.

Theatre is an art form built on collaboration. Not just the collaboration of artistis, but also of audience with performance. It only exists when others join us in exploring story. We hope you will join us on this search to communicate.

Mother's Nature: A Collection of Short Plays

We are seeking actors to originate roles in three locally written works.

"Family Tradition" by O.G. Ueberroth is the story of a young woman who brings her fiancee to meet her abuela for the first time. Things start out rocky and get worse as the woman learns of a dark family tradition. Roles available for 1 woman 20-30; 1 man 20-30 and 1 woman 60+

"Generations" by Andy Head is about three generations of women dealing with the aftermath of a tornado. As they sit waiting for a sense of direction from the aid workers, old wounds are opened. Roles available for 1 girl 8-12; 1 woman 25-35 and 1 woman 60+

"Enough is Enough" by Terry Palczewski takes us to Greece and the Oracle of Delphi. There we learn that being an oracle isn't easy as you deal with a petulant goddess and and a self-absorbed tourist. Roles available for 2 women any age and 1 woman 40+

Some double casting may occur.

Performances will be May 23, 24,30 & 31 in the evenings.
