Snow White warm up - for Talent dev page_

Current opportunities:

  • WORKSHOP 17 January 2020 at Tobacco Factory Theatres from 1 – 5pm (UK)

Free, open access opportunity to work with New International Encounter (NIE)  during the festive run of Snow White at Tobacco Factory Theatres in Bristol.

Call out for: Actors / Actor Musicians / Actor Puppeteers / Musicians

New International Encounter (NIE) and Tobacco Factory Theatres are looking for future collaborators for projects.

We are particularly interested to meet more artists from diverse backgrounds.

Co-Artistic Director Alex Byrne will lead a workshop introducing NIE’s approach to tragic / comic / magical / musical / devised theatre.  We will work with improvisation, play and the connection of live music with performance.

This workshop explores the physical preparation of the body for performance through work on pure and expressive movement, and the playfulness of the actors in performance through games and group work.

Artists who play will be invited to bring their instrument as we will work with music as a key and spur for improvisation using musicality and rhythm as tools in performance.

  • We love to work with artists who:
  • Are from a variety of places / countries / traditions
  • Speak different languages

  • Are interested in devising and being part of making our work
  • Are intelligent and inspiring
