Young actors with strong improvisation skills wanted for art installation film ‘conscience’

We are looking for a number of actors with a playing age of 16-22 years, of any gender, physical description, ethnicity, background, disability or sexuality, to complete approximately 2 days of paid improvisation and filming at the New Art Gallery Walsall.

Casting: Workshop auditions on 26th/27th February 2016 (half-days).
Location: Artist Studio based in New Art Gallery Walsall, West Midlands
Closing Date: 21st February

Improvisations/Filming dates: 3rd/4th March (hours TBC)

‘Conscience’ is a multimedia art installation project currently in its research and development stage at the New Art Gallery, Walsall, and part of the Gallery’s collaboration with Shape Arts for the Adam Reynolds Memorial Bursary. The project seeks to explore the relationship between young people and the armed forces in Britain. Direct or relevant experience of this topic is desirable.

The project will involve collaborative improvisation with both cast and crew to develop the story during the filmmaking process, based on source material from field research and interviews. You should be confident and comfortable with this process, and with the subject matter and the fact that this will be explored from every angle and point of view.

While this call is specifically for the dates above, it is possible that this will lead to further work as the project progresses. The multimedia installation will be exhibited later in the year with an additional live performance.
