The Walking Tour (working title)
The Gramophones Theatre Company are a Nottingham based all-female Company who have been making and touring work nationally for six years. We often use our own personal experiences in our work. This show has been commissioned by First Art and 10 days research and development has taken place so far including story collecting in both Mansfield and Bolsover.
Rehearsal dates: Weeks beginning 29th August and 5th September, performances on the Saturdays. Paid at ITC Rates- £440 per week.
We are looking for three female performers with an East Midlands Base. The show is an interactive walking tour where female characters from the town’s history will be represented by performers who will take on these characters, but also play themselves. The audience will be moved from location to location by the performers with the help of volunteers: Bolsover on the 3rd of September and Mansfield on the 10th. Performers must be confident with audience interaction and improvisation as well as site-specific work and devising.
We are aiming to put together a diverse cast and would like to meet a range of different women for this project.
Auditions will take place on the 23rd of July.
