Bare Witness Theatre Company is looking to add to its regular ensemble for a 2-week creative development for a new project at Belconnen Arts Centre. I Have No Enemies will be an original post-dramatic play about surveillance, data, and how we make sense of our place in a digital world. This is an unpaid development that will culminate in a work-in-progress rehearsal-room showing for invited guests. It is hoped that this development process can act as a platform for mounting a full-scale profit-share production in future.
For this project, we are seeking actors who have an interest in devising new work, challenging themselves as performers, and taking ownership of their creative voice in the rehearsal room. If accepted into the ensemble, actors will be expected to do their own research into the themes of the project in order to contribute to the devising process. Actors should also be comfortable improvising to create material, and engaging in a physically-demanding style of theatre.
The dates for the creative development are Saturday 27th March – Sunday 11th April, excluding Mondays (14 working days in total, 10am – 6pm each day). While it is not expected that participants can commit to every one of those days, a commitment to at least 10 of the 14 days, including the last two days of the development, Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th April, will be necessary in order to be considered. Actors who are not available for this creative development, but who would be interested in being involved in future projects and ongoing weekly physical training, are also welcome to audition.
Selection will be determined by workshop audition and short interview. Auditions will take place at Belconnen Arts Centre on Saturday 20th March and Sunday 21st March, from 1pm – 5pm.
