Actor / Deviser

Salary: GBP £500 for one week

Application Deadline: December 15, 2017 5:00 pm

Company: Saikat Ahamed

Job Details

Required: an actress of BAME heritage, ideally Bristol based (or surrounding areas) for a one week R and D w/c 15th January 2018.

We Are British…

I have recieved funding to develop a new show looking at stories of migration to the UK and also asking the question ‘what does it mean to be British?’ The week’s R and D will be based on extensive research including interviews with individuals who have either come to the UK for various reasons and also second generation immigrants growing up with the shadow of migration.

Over the course of the week, 4 performers as well as some creatives will collaborate to bring to life the material I’ve captured to inform the eventual writing of the play We Are British… (working title). As such, experience of devising is essential.

The fee is £500 for the week, all in. Unfortunately there are no expenses above this, so a Bristol base is preferred. The R and D will take place at Travelling Light Theatre Company in Barton Hill.
