Call For Participant Performers

NNF Festival Launch Friday 10 May

Where: Norwich City Center
When: Friday 10 May, 8-10pm
Rehearsal: Thursday 9 May, 7-10pm
Who: 40 people of all ages from children to adults

We’re looking for 40 participants to perform in our Festival launch The Journey on Friday 10 May, before Chris Bullzini walks the high-wire from the top of Jarrold to The Forum. We would like 40 people of all ages (from children to adults) to walk from The Forum towards Jarrold in a choreographed scene. You will be required to attend a rehearsal on Thursday 9 May from 7-10pm and then required from 8-10pm on the evening of the performance on Friday 10 May.

We would like people to provide their own costume where possible, which would include a long coat and suitcase, to look as if they are travelling (going on their own journey). If you don’t have this costume this won’t inhibit you from participating.

If you’re interested in taking part please contact Sarah Witcomb on 01603 878386
