Mathilde Lopez & James Tyson are looking to cast for a new play from Hong Kong by Vee Leong.

Who Killed the Elephant? is a new work by Vee Leong developed from a short story by George Orwell which explores authority, censorship and freedom from the context of Hong Kong's relationship to the Chinese state. The original Cantonese version of the play produced by On and On Theatre (Hong Kong) opened in Hong Kong and Taiwan earlier this year. 
The piece directed by Mathilde Lopez will be a central part of  Between Text and Performance (Hong Kong-Wales), a collaborative interdisciplinary theatre project focusing on translation that will be presented at Chapter Arts Centre from 7th-9th February 2013

Rehearsals will be from 7th January to 7th February 2013 at Chapter Arts Centre and we are looking for:

A male or female actor, 20-30 years old, black/white/asian/mixed race, to play a policeman newly enrolled, a crowd and an elephant
A male or female actor, 30-40 years old, black/white/asian/mixed race, to play a policeman, a crowd and an elephant
A male or female actor, 40- 60 years old, black/white/asian/mixed race, to play a policeman, a crowd, a woman and an elephant

All the performers need to be interested in new writing and devising in order to explore fully a new piece of work, conceptually, physically and/or musically.

The auditions will take place in Chapter on Wednesday 29th & Thursday 30th August 2012,  7-9pm 
Fee meets Equity minimum. Project supported by Arts Council of Wales.
