Casting Call: Who is your Name
Venue: Project Arts Centre
Date: 13 – 25 February
By appointment only
We’re looking for up to 10 stage performers to take part in a staged performance by Amsterdam-based visual artist Nicoline van Harskamp. We need performers of different ages and backgrounds to make up a multilingual cast, as different proficiency levels, dialects, and varieties of language are at the very core of the performance.
Proper names cross boundaries of languages, cultures, religions and nationalities in ways that most other words cannot. This piece will consist of several short monologues on the topic of names: how they can be given as well as withdrawn, inflicted, collected, hidden, or adapted and will be staged in several languages, including Irish and English.
Nicoline van Harskamp will be in Dublin this coming February to open Englishes, a solo exhibition of earlier works on video, in the Project Gallery, when she will also conduct research for this new work and meet potential performers. The performance itself will be staged in Dublin in October 2018
Meetings will take place from 13 – 25 February, if you’d like to be considered please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your availability to meet with the artist during those dates , as well as relevant information about yourself.
