Call out for theatre-makers of Indian origin to devise with The Plasticine Men

The Plasticine Men are South West based theatre-makers, Simon Day and Martin Bonger. Working closely with brilliant artists from a range of disciplines, we search for stories together that beg to be told onstage, crafting shows of heart and consequence that get under the skin. Our latest and second show, There Shall Be Fireworks (“vivid, bold and engaging… an intense and vibrant piece of modern theatre” Stagetalk Magazine ★★★★) was developed with funding from the Peggy Ramsay Foundation, and was selected to perform at both PULSE and A Younger Theatre’s INCOMING festivals. Our first piece, Keepers (“a beautifully crafted piece of no frills physical theatre” The Guardian), was nominated for the Total Theatre and The Stage Acting Awards.

We are looking to collaborate with a new performer on the research and development of our new devised theatre show, Engine Brake. We want to discover a story together that explores global narratives of growth and progress, through the prism of our relationship with the car, and with advertising.

This is a paid opportunity to work for up to 8 days at £150 per day.

Who?

  • Experienced English speaking performer of Indian origin
  • Aged 20 or above
  • Must be available for two workshop periods: three days during week commencing 20th November (Birmingham) and Mon-Fri week commencing 4th December (London)

We are partilcuarly keen to work with a female performer and would prefer someone with experience of devised and/or improvised practice. A passion for storytelling and an open, curious, playful and supportive nature is the most important thing however, so if you’re a classically trained male actor and you want to work with us, we’d still love to hear from you!. The ability to speak Hindi (or another Indian language) would be useful, as would experience of living in India. If you can sing, dance, play an instrument etc. that’s a bonus.

How?

Send a brief email of introduction (approx. 250 words tops) to simon@theplasticinemen.co.uk, or feel free to record a 1-2 min video instead. Refer to the above to tell us a bit about yourself, your background, and your work in theatre. Please be sure to include a contact phone number, and up to three relevant links (e.g. profile pages, theatre company web page etc).

Please get in touch no later than 5pm on Thu 19th October.

Where and when?

We will invite a small number of people to an informal workshop between Mon 23 – Wed 25 Oct (location tbc).

Questions?

Drop Simon a line on simon@theplasticinemen.co.uk along with a phone number, and he’ll call you back.

Look forward to hearing from you!
