Dizraeli Development Week

Internationally acclaimed new writingcompany nabokov are working with award winning MC and folk artist Dizraeli to develop a brand new production for 2013. Over the course of this development week we will be exploring how to make a piece of theatre which experiments with traditional folk stories, how to tell them in a contemporary and relevant way, and how to incorporate music and spoken word in a way which not only enhances the performance but also the narrative.

What we want:

We’re looking for performers of every type who are able to add something unique to the mix. We want to work with people who are passionate about what they do, have interesting ideas and different ways of working. You might be an actor, musician, dancer or spoken word artist, a mix of several of these or something else entirely. You’ll probably be required to do at least some acting, and musical skills are a big advantage.

You’ll need to be available for a workshop audition on the afternoon of Thursday 6th December (location TBC, but in London).

What we can offer you:

This is a paid development week at a rate of £400. We’re looking for a total of 5 performers. We hope that the piece will be developed into a full production in 2013, with major co-producers and multiple performance opportunities, however acceptance onto the development week is not a guarantee of involvement in the final production.

The auditions:

There will be two audition groups, 2pm-3.30pm and 4pm-5.30pm, on the afternoon of Thursday 6th December. To apply, please email a CV and any supporting material (reviews, video, photos etc) to  paul@nabokov-online.com  before Wednedsay 5th December. We’ll try to get back to everyone who applies but this may not be possible if the volume of applicants is high. If you’re successful we’ll send you details of what to prepare and your audition slot.


Good luck!
