Prevail Theatre Coll. (UK)

Male or Female, Closes: October 15, 2015

This is a Research & Development process which will be devised in the rehearsal room with the director, choreographer and two performers.

This is an LGBT Physical Theatre piece that is born from the desire to create more positive narratives in LGBT theatre. The title of the work, "Prevail", comes from our desire to show that, while the gay community goes through so extremely hard times, they show an incredible tenacity to overcome these hardships and 'prevail'.

With an original score forming the backdrop of the piece and real-life stories to draw upon, we are looking to create a short 30 minute piece that begins to explore these ideas and will provide the starting point for further development in 2016.

We are looking for two performers (gender, age, ethnicity non-specific) to devise with the director and choreographer what will go on to be the 30 minute show which will be performed to an invited audience of potential funders and interested parties.

We require confident physical performers who are also actors. You will also need to be happy to share ideas throughout the process and collaborate with the rest of the team.

This is the first phase of this show which we intend to develop into 2016. Depending on the success of this first stage, there is likely to be opportunity to remain with the production and develop it further.

To apply:

Please email the producer on the above address and send a CV / Spotlight Link and headshot plus any other information you feel we should know. We will then respond with an audition slot. Each slot will be 10 minutes but please allow up to an hour.

At the audition we will require you to perform a short speech of your choosing as well as a short movement piece. Please prepare the speech in advance and come in clothes you are comfortable to move in.

Audition: 15th October 2015 10am - 4pm

(Please note all auditions will be given a specific time within this window)

Week 1: 19th - 24th October
