nabokov Arts Club call for new acts!

We are looking for unique and exciting acts for our next event at VAULT Festival on Friday 28th February and Saturday 1st March 2014. The Arts Club will be taking over VAULT Festival to celebrate its 5th birthday on both nights with our trademark mix of live arts and partying that has seen sold out crowds and national press coverage for our previous events at Village Underground, BAC and the Edinburgh Fringe.

What we want:

We’re looking for comedians, poets, storytellers, theatre-makers, musicians, sketch groups, dancers, cabaret acts, circus performers – or anything else that you think might tickle our fancy. For this event we’ll be exploring the theme ‘London, Underground’ so we’re especially interested in anything related to this, but it’s far from essential.

You’ll need to be available for a possible meeting, a tech slot on Friday 28th and then your performance times on the evenings of Friday 28th and Saturday 1st (from 11pm onwards).

What we can offer you:

We’re interested in finding new talent for the variety of events that we produce. For this initial event we will not be offering a fee to performers who are selected, but we are able to offer you the chance to perform at a unique event at a prestigious venue and to a large audience, as well as artistic support and advice. We hope that this could be the start of new and fruitful relationships with artists from across the spectrum, and indeed several artists who have come through this audition process have gone on to collaborate with us further.

To apply:

To apply, please email a description of your act and any supporting material (cv, reviews, video, photos etc) to Molly Roberts before Monday 10th February. We’ll try to get back to everyone who applies but this may not be possible if the volume of applicants is high. We only have a limited number of spaces this year, so if we’re interested but unfamiliar with your work, we may call you in for a meeting.

Please note that this is not an open audition for individual actors. Good luck!
