Encounter are looking for two male performers for an R&D week 5th-9th March 2018 for our new show ISLAND, produced by Fuel and originally commissioned by The Place, London.
When a visit to the Natural History Museum turns to tragedy, the fabric of one family is violently unpicked forever as life becomes categorised as ‘before’ or ‘after’ the death of their daughter. ISLAND explores the complexities of the modern world as we know it, working to understand, through primary age children’s active participation in a new live performance with two adult performers, how we talk to children about conflict.
The piece brings together new writing, dance, and sound installation. It is created by Jen Malarkey (director/ choreographer) and Lee Mattinson (writer).
We are looking for:
– Actors who are comfortable (but not necessarily experienced) in exploring dance
– Dancers with strong contemporary technique who are comfortable and have some experience of text.
When: Saturday 10th February
Where: The Place, London
How to Apply: Please email [email protected] with some video footage / showreel of your work.
