Upswing seeks BAME male physical performer


London at

Upswing is seeking a BAME male Physical performer – with a playing age of 30 or under – for a new outdoor touring performance on a bespoke designed set working with an intergenerational cast from March to September 2019. We are seeking a performer skilled in either handstands, acrobatics, gymnastics or parkour. Additional skills in juggling and object manipulation or any experience of partner work would be an advantage but not essential.

We would like to find someone playful and open to devising movement with other cast members.

Upswing productions are ensemble pieces where all artists contribute to making the production collaboratively. A team working approach is vital. We want to work with performers who are happy to experiment and muck in where needed. We value the people that we work with and aim to create a challenging yet fun working environment.

Rehearsal dates:
8 – 14 April 2019
26 April – 16 May 2019

Performance dates:
18 – 19 May 2019
25 May 2019
2 – 3 August 2019

Applicants must have availability for ALL the above dates. In addition please indicate dates that are not available for the whole March – September period as we will add more performing dates.

Performers will be paid above Equity minimum. Please note that we cover relocation costs within the UK outside of London. We welcome applications from those outside the UK, but we are unable to cover expenses for artists coming from overseas.

To apply please send a headshot, video links of your work and a CV or work history to with “Catch Me Casting” in the subject line.

Deadline for applications is 22 February, 5pm.
Shortlisted applicants will be notified by 25 February.
Auditions will be on 27 February in London.
