Actors for devised work ‘Janus'
Wrong Shoes Theatre Company
Wrong Shoes is an artist-led touring theatre company based in Wiltshire. Our shows are visceral, visual and daring - created to affect, inspire and challenge audiences. Bold, uncompromising and sometimes uncomfortable, our storytelling blends visual performance, music and text - exploring fears, testing our perceptions and exposing unexpected beauty in the most unlikely of places.
Our process begins with intensive research and experimentation. The work is refined through collaborative exploration, reflection and a willingness to take leaps and make mistakes.
Funded by Arts Council England, Wrong Shoes’ next work ‘Janus’, is a piece about our individual and collective struggle with self-identity, as we try to understand our unique place in an often isolating world. It examines cult mentality, brain washing, cognitive dissonance and those who abuse their position to achieve their own self-fulfilling desires.
We have an exciting opportunity for 3 performers to join our existing ensemble:
Actor/musician– Male, playing age 25+, good folk singing voice and ability to play acoustic guitar.
Actor/physical performer – Female, playing age 18-25
Actor/physical performer - Female, playing age 35+

· Experienced in devising, performing and working collaboratively as an ensemble
· Theatre trained (degree level or equivalent) or have been working as a professional performer for a minimum of 2 years.
· Based in Wiltshire or a reasonable commute to our base in Swindon.
· Available for rehearsal and performance dates (see below)
