Actors wanted

Root Experience are seeking to recruit a company of actors to create The Rise and Fall of Geo
Goynes – an interactive theatre experience based on urban gaming which takes places across the
streets of London in March 2014.

The company will consist of 3 Master Thieves each guiding a group of up to seven audience
members through their world and conducting a ‘heist’ and keeping audience members in
character as the thieves throughout the game play. Performances will take place face to face
and over digital devices.

We are also looking for a group of world-creators, who encounter the teams out on the streets
and endow audience members with character and narrative.

Set five years in the future, the rise of quantum computing has led to infinite processing power,
making it possible for every personal computing device to be tracked at all times. As all this
data smashes together, processors strain to make sense of the world, resulting in random
‘insights’ heard through computers – messages from the world of data, predicting the future.

Geo Goynes, a famous hacker, has begun working with these ‘insights’. Teams of thieves are
gathering, ready to strike and hijack her Oracle program for their own ends.

Root Experience are looking for actors with the following interests:

− Improvisation and storytelling
− Performing in site-specific locations
− Direct interaction with audience members

Actors must also be comfortable performing and interacting with audience members face to face
in close proximity and using a bluetooth earpiece connected to a conference call. Training in the
use of the equipment will be provided.

Auditions will take place on Saturday, Jan 25th and Sunday, Jan 26th.

Child performer needed (11 – 13 years old) for Vincent Dance Theatre production

Vincent Dance Theatre is one of the UK’s leading touring companies, making exciting, provocative experimental performance work that tours the UK and abroad. We are looking for a grounded young performer age 11-13 years old, who can play the violin at Grade 3 or above, with performance and movement experience.

An audition/workshop will be held from 1-6pm on Saturday 7th December in the Roof Studio at Siobhan Davies Studios in London.

The successful performer will take on an exceptional role in VDT’ Motherland show, an experimental production that has been touring to critical acclaim since autumn 2012. Motherland is touring the UK again in spring 2014. The role includes partnering in a duet with an adult male performer, talking directly to the audience and to other performers on stage and playing violin live with three experienced musicians. VDT provides a safe and nurturing environment for young performers who join the company. The successful person will be open to the unique aesthetic of this production – it requires emotional intelligence, curiosity and a quiet understanding, rather than the usual ‘jazz hands/stage school’ approach to performance.

We employ children under strict UK Employment Law and all members of the company are CRB checked. Fees for the role are available on request.

For further information about the work see

For more info and to sign up contact or call the VDT office 0114 2210369. If you would like to discuss the work with the Artistic Director Charlotte Vincent please call the office to arrange.

Quit Playing With Yourself – commission for solo artists

A commission for solo artists who are interested in expanding the boundaries of what one person can do on stage. We want to ask where the ensembles have gone, particularly in Queer work. How do we get more people on stage when we can’t afford it? Look to the audience, technology or is there something we just haven’t thought of yet.

We are interested in finding artists making Queer work to help us find the answer.

We want to commission two new ideas to be realised as innovative performances. In spring 2013, two artists will benefit from residency time in Brighton and London, and will present a series of work in progress performances (as part of a double bill) in both cities.

We encourage applications from artists working across a wide range of live performance disciplines; including theatre, dance and new writing. We hope that the commissioned artists will share their methodologies and networks to help develop each others’ professional practice. We anticipate that these seed commissions will have a future touring life. Each commission includes a fee and development time and space in London and Brighton.

See for full details.

Molly and Me are looking for choir members who would like to be part of a work in progress showing of REQUIEM 21 at The Nightingale Theatre on the 21st Sep 2102, 6pm.

Open to people of all ages and experience – Amateurs, professionals and bathroom crooners. We will be exploring a range of music genres from pop, hymns, and absurd ditties to heavy metal.

REQUIEM 21 is a show, which will look back on the last twelve years of the 21st century and ask ourselves where have we ended up? With an absurdist ritual of song, text, dance and musical instruments, Molly and Me will dissect each year from 2001 to 2012.

It is a playful elegy for our times and we need singing help to bring it all together!

The choir will help the audience to sing with us, and will also be part of simple compositions; learning certain melodies and harmonies that play a key role in the show.

This is a great opportunity to be part of a project that will be fun. Requiem 21 is supported by the Arts council England and the Danish Arts council. There is the opportunity to continue singing for the project if desired, but not expected, as we will be showing the full production at The Yard, London 2-4th October and other venues in 2013.

Molly and Me are from Copenhagen and Brighton making singing and performance projects for Europe and the UK.

Rehearsal time: Sunday 16th September 4pm- 8pm

21st September 3pm onwards.
