Professional theatre company Theatre Alibi are holding open auditions on January 20 and 21 in Bristol and Exeter and offering to cover travel expenses if needed.
Performers always have a much harder time finding work outside of London, and the costs of travelling and accommodation are often the killers to developing talent from across the country, which simply underlines the huge inequalities for those seeking employment in the performing arts.
Mindful of this, the initiative from Theatre Alibi is most welcome.
They say: “We’d like to meet performers from across the UK who haven’t worked with us before. We’re looking for actors, dancers, puppeteers and musicians and are keen to meet performers who are just starting out, through to those who have a wealth of experience. We recognise that there are groups that are under-represented in our sector, and especially in our region, and we’re dedicated to righting that wrong. We especially welcome applications from Global Majority performers and those who are Deaf/disabled.
We’d love to hear from you!”
Those interested in attending must apply by January 6th, 2022.
