We are currently casting the main part of Sylvia von Harden in our production of Monocle, Portrait of S von Harden.
Salary: Unpaid for now
Production Dates: February 2018 onward
Apply by: 12/01/18
Physical characteristics: Caucasian, with short, dark brown hair.
Taller than 5.9 (1.75cm) and slim build.
Somewhat angular and sharp features.
Please refer to the painting Portrait of S. von Harden by Otto Dix for guidance.
The female character of Sylvia will most likely be played either in drag by a heteronormative man OR (and this is of particular interest to us) a non-binary, genderfluid performer or transgender. However, since our focus is more on finding a perfect fit in terms of movement and characterisation, we will not limit the casting process in terms of gender.
We are currently looking at scratch nights and a potential run of 3 nights at the Landor Space in 2018. These will most likely be unpaid or profit share, for now, however, we are committed to finding someone that can become part of our company and, at a later stage, be paid accordingly. We are also looking into funding bodies, including the European Union Culture Fund and bodies situated in The Netherlands, Norway and Germany. For the Goethe Institut (Germany) we would need a German company member, as well as the piece including German words and sentences. A German background, therefore, would be favourable.
If interested, please contact us on email@example.com or give us a call on 07460857946.
Please send us your headshot, CV and/or spotlight link.
Be bold, we are not the biting type. :)
All the best,
Anne and Melissa
