We are delighted to invite you to our auditions for our incredible Semester 2 show ‘Deficit’!
The show centres around five characters: Wulver, Selkie, Poltergeist, Kelpie and Beira. Each of the characters have a mythical origin, which become a metaphor for a different lived experience. This is a highly collaborative devised performance and each character will be informed by the actors’ own experiences and thoughts. Using videography, movement and immersive sound design we shall create a highly immersive piece of theatre highlighting the human condition and exposing the magical realism of our lives.
This is a piece of ensemble devised theatre with featured moments for all the characters. Their stories will intertwine and develop together as the show progresses. We are creating five short films that further contextualise each of the characters narratives. These will be used as publicity material as well as being deconstructed and used during the actual show through projections and on various screens.
For more detailed information on our production please see our short auditions pack available via this link:
‘Deficit’ will be performed in the final week of March 2019.
Auditions will take place on Monday 14th January with callbacks on Friday 18th. Please sign up using the the google form below and you will then be emailed a confirmation by our producer.
Auditions will be in the form of a two-hour workshop. The first group will begin at 5.45pm and the second at 8pm. The workshop will consist of several different exercises designed to see how you work with one another and respond to the material. The workshop will be very similar to a typical rehearsal, hopefully giving you a taste of what the process will involve. You do not need to specifically prepare a piece before arrival. Please wear comfortable clothing and bring some water with you as we will be moving a lot and you might get sweaty.
