Masha and the Firebird

Deaf and Disabled artists Callout - R&D week with theatre delicatessen


We are looking for creatives and performers to join us in R&Ding a new show based on the children's book Masha and the Firebird in September, exact dates TBC. We have been offered a one-week R&D with Theatre Delicatessen in Southwark, and are currently looking for D/deaf and disabled performers, musicians and creatives to come on board.

Masha and the Firebird is a kid's tale about painting the Firebird's eggs and hiding them from the evil witch Baba Yaga. Our intended audience is the SEND kids sector and so we're looking for artists of all abilities with BSL/puppetry/musical/any other skills. Roles we are looking to fill include:

4 Performers/Musicians (must be comfortable with puppetry - there will be a puppet development week with the chosen actors to make sure that the puppets are comfortable and are designed to suit performers of all abilities.)
Movement director/Choreographer
BSL interpreter
Puppet Designer
Set Designer
Lighting Designer

Both the puppetry development week and the R&D week will be paid at Equity rates. 

If you are interested in being part of the project please send us your CV, a cover letter, your availability from July-September and if you have any particular access requirements - we will be organising the auditions according to the needs of those applying, and are more than happy to travel to individual homes etc if that would make you feel more comfortable. We'd also love to hear from people who have experience in accessible theatre and, while not interested in joining the production, would be happy to meet up over a coffee and have a a chat.
