Mufti Games

Bristol

Mufti Games WLTM male and female performers for weekend getaways!

Mufti Games are a Bristol based team of theatre-makers who love to work with performers, musicians and designers to make and to play games.

Our flagship pieces, MASSIVE BATTLESHIPS and L_VE HANGMAN, have been played at a range of festivals, street events and theatres including Festival Number 6, Bristol Festival of Puppetry, Bristol Old Vic and partners on the Northern Touring Network, and we have created original commissions for Bristol 2015 Green Capital and the Barbican Centre.

We have been lucky enough to work with some brilliant performers, most recently the magnificent MASSIVE BATTLESHIPS crew of Rew Lowe and Kim Heron, and now we are looking for new recruits to swell our ranks. Performers are needed for MASSIVE BATTLESHIPS and L_ve Hangman gigs as part of summer touring plans, and also to begin playing with ideas for future projects. All gigs will be paid in line with recommended industry rates.
