Audition Call Out: Cultured Mongrel

Audition Call Out: Cultured Mongrel

Cultured Mongrel is looking for eight exceptional dancers/ movement artists from a variety of backgrounds for the first stage development of Epic Fail: a dance theatre exploration of failure, permission to fail and societal perceptions of success. Epic Fail will be performed as work in progress, to an international delegation, at Edinburgh International Children’s Festival in May 2019 in the hope of securing support to bring the piece to full production. Epic Fail aims to offer audiences the opportunity to laugh, applaud, support and commiserate with a group of highly skilled performers who are destined to fail!

They are looking for exceptional movement artists with a minimum of five years performance experience who are familiar with working in a collaborative environment. There is possibility of work with autobiographical material, exploring the performers personal experiences of failure.
