I am an artist based in Farnham, Surrey looking for 2-3 actors to all play as Peggy Mitchell (from Eastenders.) This will to take place early June (date to be confirmed soon) within fine art pub installation at The University for the Creative Arts, Farnham degree show evening private view.

This role will involve dressing up as Peggy Mitchell, wigs and clothes provided, taking it in turns to stand behind the no functioning 5ft oak bar repeating the lines 'Get out my pub' to the general public on entering the pub installation.

-Actors need to be confident improvising and interacting with the general public.
-Happy to be filmed.
-Comfortable with the performance footage being played in the space after private view night.
-Avaible for early June in the evening.
-Within reasonable distance to Farnham.

This performance installation piece is about the translation of language and culture, specifically how British culture translates across the UK and internationally. By creating the look of a stereotypical British pub participations could be anywhere in the world in this internationally recognized British space, with set rules in its architecture, appearance and its social and political connotations.

As an actor, you don't need to look like Peggy Mitchell physical, be the same gender or age as the character. It is important to the concept of the work that actors play with how the language and appearance of Peggy Mitchell translate to the audience. Testing how far the essence of a character can be pushed till it no longers resonates with cultural memory of said character, e.g Peggy Mitchell.

The Peggy Mitchell actors are the most important part of the installation as they emulate British pop-culture, British knowledge, and how these British stereotypes are appropriated and culturally remembered. This piece is about playing with at what point do these cultural memories lose their context.

Shortlisted actors will be auditioned via Skype.
The 2-3 chosen actors will come to chat and rehearse in the space before the final performance.

Actors will be paid and credited.
