Vamos Theatre are holding two talent development/audition workshops in October, in partnership with the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry. These workshops are to provide training for performers in full mask skills and increase the pool of available mask talent in the UK: we also hope to cast at least one actor for our 2019 tour of A Brave Face from the workshops.

Performers can apply to attend one of the two workshops: either a two-day workshop at the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry, or a one-day workshop at our base at Worcester Arts Workshop, Worcester.

We welcome professional actors regardless of race, sex, disability, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or age. We hope to cast the following roles at the workshop:
Black/Asian male role
White female role
White male role
Person of short stature role

Requirements
Applicants should have strong physical performance skills, be creative, hard-working, reliable and comfortable with devised theatre. Mask experience is desirable but not essential.

At the heart of our ethos is a commitment to working practices that engender genuineness, generosity, respect and consideration of others. We expect everyone who joins the Vamos Theatre team to share these beliefs and value them as we do.

Please do not apply unless you have at least 3 years’ professional acting experience, including touring.
