CASTING

Following the successful international tour of They Live Next Door, Lithuanian Choreographer ieva Kuniskis is looking for five performers of varied ages (between 21 - 65).

We are looking for:

- charismatic and versatile performers, who are experienced in contemporary dance and physical theatre. You should be comfortable devising in the creative process, using voice, and drawing on autobiographical details to inform the character and material. Any additional skills are welcome (i.e. singing, playing musical instrument etc)

This is the first stage of research and development for a new work, Breakfast. Breakfast draws on real life experiences of families dealing with a degenerative / terminal illness, exploring how the relationships and dynamics in the family might shift in the face of something so life affecting. We hope to share an empathetic story that explores what people go through every day - the heartache, but also humour, misunderstandings, moments of tenderness and frustrations of living every day alongside an illness.
