Upswing are looking for skilled circus artists aged 40+ to collaborate with the company on their next touring production. Applicants should have an interest in devised and physical theatre; skills in aerial arts, manipulation, acrobatics and equilibristics; and a minimum of five years performance experience.
Auditions are two-step, with a one-day workshop/audition 23 January, then, for those that make it through, a paid two-day stint on a workshop stretching 24-28 January which will begin to test ideas for the new production and give potential collaborators an opportunity to get to know Upswing.
After the January workshops, a number of participants will be invited to join Upswing for a further two weeks development in February / March (dates tbc).
To apply send a CV and head shot to firstname.lastname@example.org or via post to Unit 1, The Energy Centre, Bowling Green Walk, London, N1 6AL. In your application indicate which days you're available in the 24-28 January period, and also give availability for late February and early March. Deadline for applications is 18 January 2012.
