THEATRE - Experienced Male & Female performers (playing age of 35+) for Juliet & Romeo (apply by 4th Nov)



Lost Dog are inviting performers experienced in both dance and acting to apply to audition for the re-casting of their latest show Juliet & Romeo.

Lost Dog are an award-winning dance theatre company headed by Artistic Director Ben Duke. The company work with text and movement and blend these elements to create work in which dance is framed by stories and characters. Lost Dog recently premiered their newest work, Juliet & Romeo, which is broadly based on Shakespeare’s deeply pessimistic love story and explores whether our culture’s celebration of youth creates unrealistic expectations around love, sex and relationships. It is a humorous and heartfelt investigation into love, loss and longevity.
