We are currently casting for three upcoming projects:
Sharing Joy: touring June-July 2018
We seek four actors for Sharing Joy, our highly successful show for care homes. We use this short tour to train actors in full mask performance for future theatre tours, and to teach the ethos of our company. The show is created for people living with dementia and their carers, and you will receive full training in working with this group. We perform Sharing Joy in care homes, hospitals and theatres and this tour finishes with dates at the RSC. We believe in the extraordinary impact that high quality, well-tailored theatre can have in these settings, and we create surprising, playful, unpredictable and inclusive performances. Our standards are high and previous casts have included performers from Cirque de Soleil, Philippe Gaulier and Le Coq.

Vamos Theatre performs full mask Walkabout regularly throughout the UK and worldwide, and draw from a pool of performers who are trained specifically for the acts we present. Our Walkabout is humorous, cheeky, and instantly recognizable, and we usual perform in a group of two or three actors.

Finding Joy: touring UK and Europe Sept-Nov 2018
Depending on the availability of existing cast members, we are seeking performers for the autumn tour of Finding Joy¸ our award-winning show about dementia. Finding Joy has toured the world, including to many countries in Europe and to China; the autumn 2018 tour will include dates in the UK, including three at the RSC, and Germany.

For all three projects we are looking for experienced physical theatre actors, both male and female, to perform in one or more of these productions. Applicants should have strong physical performance skills, be creative, hard-working, reliable and comfortable with devised theatre: mask experience is preferable, but not essential.
For Sharing Joy in particular, we seek performers who are open, warm, playful, cheeky and loving, who see the importance of this work and relate well to older people. Performances use full mask, dancing and singing, and skills in at least one of these areas is important.
