Show poster models needed!

Want to be featured in a Berkeley Rep poster? We’re searching for two volunteer models, one male, one female, to pose for a non-explicit nude photo that will be the poster image for Berkeley Rep’s upcoming world premiere of Naomi Iizuka’s “Concerning Strange Devices from the Distant West.”

The two models would be posed tightly together in a position that would suggest sexual intimacy. The photo, which would be taken from a side view, would require models to be fully nude, but no faces, genitalia, or nipples would be shown. The ideal models would be Asian or Asian-American, but since the photo will be monochrome, models with comparable skin tones would be fine. Models must be over 18 and should look 20s, have smooth (not overly hairy) skin, and have petite-to-medium and/or toned builds (but not overly muscular). If you have elaborate tattoos, they should not be visible from at least one side.

Models should be available for a photo shoot during the week of December 21. You will be compensated with for premium tickets to the show (value: $244) and photo credit where appropriate (if desired).

Please send your contact info and your availability during the week of December 21, as well as a full-body photo (clothed is fine as long as we can get a sense of your suitability for the poster image). All submitted information will remain strictly confidential and erased when the project is complete. Please submit your materials to Berkeley Rep’s art director, Cheshire Isaacs, at cheshire AT berkeleyrep DOT org. Cheshire is available to answer questions by email or phone at 510 647-2915. A draft of the poster image is available for your consideration.

A note: actors are completely welcome to volunteer as our models, but it should be clear that this is in no way an audition for Berkeley Rep, and being featured in the poster does not constitute being featured in a Berkeley Rep production.

Please share and/or re-post this request. Thanks so much for your consideration. We hope to hear from you!
