Role and Production details

Male & Female Street Performers wanted for live interactive street-theatre performances in public spaces in Brixton for the forthcoming Rapport Festival taking place over the weekend of 16th & 17th June 2018.
The performances will be memorable, fun, rewarding and created by the group (teenagers, adults and older people) covering a range of themes like ‘change’, ‘memories’, ‘journeys’, & ‘the future’ and involve different art forms e.g. poetry, musicians, song, dance, puppets etc.
We will be rehearsing at Brixton Road Youth Club (143 – 145 Brixton Road SW9 6LZ) Wednesdays 5.30pm – 8.30pm & Saturdays 11.00am – 4.00pm.
These workshops* will all lead up to the festival performance.
Rehearsal Dates are:
Wednesday’s 9th 16th 23rd May 6th & 13th June
Saturdays 26th May & 2nd 9th June
Commitment and sensitivity is an essential criteria.
There will be opportunities for budding performers to “show case” their talent to the wider public and industry professionals.
The project aims to bring people of different ages together to increase awareness and understanding between the generations leading to improved communication, mutual understanding and respect.
*During the workshops, you will be given the opportunity to develop your creative ideas and though games, character, narrative and plot; the essential grammar of dramatic improvisation.
The participants will develop skills in research, interviewing, writing, devising and rehearsing.
Tony Cealy will guide, support and mentor you throughout the whole process in group work and in one-to-one sessions.
This project is free to attend but there are limited places!
We draw from the past to live in the present for the benefit of the future.
