Auditions held Wednesday 28 February 2018
Fading will experiment with using the body in unnatural ways, experimenting with movement that might be alien to do and to see. This will be juxtaposed in the final work with inner thought as we shift into the adult world and our childhood fades. Cast members will be working closely with the playwright and director from March to July to develop the script which will be rehearsed throughout this time to September.
Fading will look at all that is expected of you when you turn 18 – career chosen, mature decision making, clear future goals, clear identity, stable relationships, stable sexuality, autonomy. The work will be post dramatic in its form, utilising dialogue alongside unnatural physicality to emphasise the challenges experienced as the individual navigates the shift from being a child to becoming an adult.
Training and rehearsals: Monday and Wednesday evenings from 26 March – 9 September
Production week: Monday 10 September – Saturday 15 September
Please note there will be additional dates during this timeframe for creative developments and extra rehearsals (including on weekends and public holidays). These dates will be discussed at the audition.
