ARTISTS CALL – PRODUCTION FOR YOUNG AUDIENCES

ARTISTS CALL – PRODUCTION FOR YOUNG AUDIENCES

Logo Rotondes

Espace culturel des Rotondes, in collaboration with director Andrea Buzzetti (La Baracca ONLUS company from Bologna) and in coproduction with Kulturhaus Niederanven (other partnerships pending), is looking for 3 performers for a new theatrical and musical creation aimed at a young audience (3+).

 

PRESENTATION OF THE PROJECT

As part of its programming, Rotondes is looking for 

2 actors / dancers and 1 musician 

Professional, confirmed or emerging artists, from various backgrounds, with an affinity for artistic research and improvisation, movement and working with objects. The play will be aimed at young audiences aged 3 and over (families and schools) and will be without words. The production is intended to be light from a scenic point of view and is planned to tour. The play will be ‘without words’.

 

WORKING METHODOLOGY

Interested artists are invited to submit their application (artistic CV & cover letter). A pre-selection will be done by Rotondes and those artists will be invited to participate in the artistic workshop led by director Andrea Buzzetti at Rotondes. 
The workshop and all the creative work will be conducted in English (it will be possible to express oneself in French). Pre-selected candidates must attend the full 2-day workshop. No prior preparation (text, variation, etc.) is required. The workshop will be based mainly on guided improvisation and experimentation on the theme of the play.
After the workshop, the final selection of the 3 performers will be done by Andrea Buzzetti and Rotondes.

The production will be created through several residencies and rehearsals. 
- Three stages of work will be accompanied by the director.
- Two other stages will take place solely between the performers, without the presence of Andrea Buzzetti. For these two periods, the director will pass on research ideas and subjects to the performers, who will be expected to be autonomous and to come up with their own ideas to move the project forward.
