Splash! launch and inclusive casting callout – Apply by Wed 21 Nov

We were pleased to host the Splash! launch event in September, which brought together a consortium of arts organisations from across the East Midlands region with the aim of providing high quality, live and on-line arts engagement, performance and production opportunities for over 2,500 young people with learning disabilities and their families across Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and Northamptonshire.

Splash! will be an outdoor, sensory, visual performance next summer, inspired by themes of water, buoyancy and discovery. It will tour to 5 venues in the East Midlands from June to September 2019. We are making the show for children and young people with learning disabilities and their families.

Extraordinary Bodies are casting for the brand-new show, which is commissioned by The Mighty Creatives and the Splash! Consortium.

We are auditioning D/deaf, disabled, learning disabled and Black and Asian Minority Ethnic circus artists, actors and dancers. We are very interested in artists living or working in the East Midlands.

The audition is a chance for performers to meet people from theatres in the East Midlands, to make connections with other artists, build relationships and start conversations.

Audition date: Thu 29 November 2018

Audition venue: Royal & Derngate, Northampton, 19-21 Guildhall Rd, Northampton, NN1 1DP
