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'.

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.
