LEDA & THE SWAN – Audition Notice

APPLICATIONS CLOSE: 24/05/16 | AUDITIONS: 01/06/16 & 02/06/16

The Q is holding auditions to cast 8 young performers (16 – 26) for the 2016 workshop production of ‘Leda & The Swan.’ The show will be presented as part of The Q’s Young Artist Program in the Allan Mullins Studio at The Joan.

PRODUCER: The Q is the resident theatre making program at The Joan.

ROLES: 8 young performers (16 – 26).

EXPERIENCE: Performers of various levels of experience are encouraged to apply. A background or interest in devising new work will be an advantage.

THE SHOW: “The broken wall, the burning roof.” Eight emerging artists enter the battle of Troy. Their job? Take on the history books and centuries worth of retellings. They’ll reflect on war, love and violence. You know… the simple stuff. ‘Leda and the Swan’ is a story that has repeatedly been told through sculpture, poetry, song and stage. It is a story of Gods meddling in the world of mortals and of violence begetting violence.

Following the success of ‘The Bacchae’ in 2015, The Q is excited to be producing this new work created by The Q’s Young Artist Ensemble
