This will hopefully go up on ArtsJobs soon, too, but thought I’d share it on here and twitter etc. as soon as possible. Please do pass it on to anyone who you think might be interested. Thanks!
Looking for 20 people, around the age of 18-35, 10 male, 10 female
I am an emerging artist creating an apocalypse-related sound experience for a festival happening in London in July. The piece is set on the top deck of a night bus, and requires 20 people to complete simple actions on the streets at set times along the bus route.
You will need to be willing to work in pairs, for a few hours reasonably late on 3 nights, as well as attending a brief meeting, and day’s preparation. The movements will not be complicated, for example, one just involves running along the street whilst holding hands.
You will need to be available:
- On the late afternoon or early evening of the 14th of July for a brief meeting
- Most of Saturday the 23rd of July to choreograph and rehearse the movements.
- Between the hours of midnight and 1am on the 24th of July, for a dress run.
- Between the hours of midnight and 2am (or a little later depending on where you are on the route) on the 25th and 27th of July.
I can pay each ‘performer’ up to £10 expenses, and will buy everyone a drink. If you get any costume items, you’re welcome to keep them! You will also be fully credited on the handout material that goes with the show.
If you’re interested in helping me create the apocalypse on a bus route, please contact me to find out more! Email Contact [at] hannahnicklin.com as soon as possible (and before the 11th of July) for more info.
