  • SPARK casting call Posted on 09 November 2013

    We'll soon be casting the sole role of Leo in our upcoming show SPARK. Basic information about the part and production can be found below; if you have any questions about SPARK or the role, just contact us at info@dissolvetheatre.co.uk.

     

    Role: Leo

    Playing age: 22-29

    Ethnicity: Any

    Accent: Any

    Audition dates: 25-30 November

    Rehearsal dates: throughout January (flexible/to be confirmed)

    Performance dates: 4th-8th February

    Venue: The Vaults, Waterloo

    Pay: expenses plus profit share

     

    SPARK is a solo storytelling piece featuring custom illusions and follows Leo as she embarks on a doomed elopement with her long-absent lover, Will. Leo is initially resentful, erratic and restless as she struggles to deal with Will's absence and sudden re-appearance; as their increasingly eerie journey progresses and she's forced to face the unfathomable, Leo's headstrong, defiant yet pragmatic nature comes through.

     

    Due to the expenses/profit share nature of the role, January rehearsals will be very flexible to accommodate other commitments. No previous experience with magic and stage illusion is necessary, but we are looking for an actress comfortable with improvisation. SPARK combines a variety of natural, heightened and surreal elements and we want to work with an adventurous actress to take on the challenge of combining all of these.

     

    If you would like to be considered for an audition, please email your headshot, CV, and a short paragraph detailing your interest in the show to info@dissolvetheatre.co.uk. The deadline for applications is 19th November.
