Brighton-based BandBazi are looking for a male actor or physical performer, with a playing age of 16, for their new production Mind Walking.
'A new aerial drama by acclaimed playwright Tanika Gupta, Mind Walking explores what happens to a family when the mind of an old, Indian man Bobbie starts to unravel. Bobbie has spent all his adult life in Britain, but in a care home he reverts back to his first language, a language that he spoke as a boy in Bombay in the 1940s. His family – loving wife, grown-up daughter and teenage grandson – are devastated. How will they manage to communicate with Bobbie? How do they understand Bobbie's life as he enters a world that they have no comprehension of? As secrets and hidden stories tumble out of Bobbie’s mouth, his family start to question the truth about their ancestry and shared history.'
