Six female dancer/singer/actors required - Victoria

Casting complete. Applications are now closed.

This bawdy cabaret will explore music, dance and theatrical debauchery through the quirky tale of the sacred service within Aphrodite’s temple, located in the island of Lesbos. Our feisty priestesses have found themselves ‘un-sellable’, so they take to the drawing board with renewed vigour in an attempt to hit new markets, access more pricks and promote themselves to even lower heights! What follows is an incredibly quirky display of Greek theatre, vaudeville, timeless social commentaries and fishnets!

The lucky audience that finds themselves lost in the world of Bordello can expect a bohemian musical score co-developed by none other than Melbourne band, Rapskallion, winners of the Adelaide Fringe best music award. The wacky physical theatre concepts, that Miss Friby is best known for, offer suburban regalia in tightly constructed choreography and when you team that up with an innovative script by Melbourne playwright, Katie Dircks, you’re guaranteed a shocking brawl of dirty feminism at its best.

This show, and it is a show, is being especially devised for the charming remnants of Melbourne’s Fringe community with the hope of presenting something completely new and innovative, but at the same time addressing modern themes in an awkwardly grotesque manner.

Rehearsals are due to take place in Footscray during the periods below:

Monday 9th July – Sunday 22nd July
Wednesday 25th July
Saturday 28th July
Monday 30th July – Sunday 23rd September
Monday 1st -5th October

*EXACT REHEARSAL SCHEDULE TO BE ANNOUNCED however, only performers who are able to commit to rehearsing at some time during the above dates are encouraged to apply.

Performance Dates vary due to Fringe venue confirmation however, performers can expect to commit to six-nine shows within the dates of 1st October – 14th October 2012, particularly Thursday – Sunday (EVENINGS ONLY).

Auditions will be taking place on the 23rd and 24th June during the day.

All performers, cast and crew are entering the production team under a profit share arrangement.

This is a great oppurtunity to colaborate with other wacky individuals, get some great exposure and enhance your performance history.
