We are excited to announce that this summer we will be working with Chinese actors on a new Walkabout act - to be performed at the Modern Drama Valley Festival, Shanghai.
The performance, featuring three mask characters played by Chinese actors, will be rehearsed via video link. Vamos Theatre’s Artistic Director, Rachael Savage, who is writing and directing the performance, has already run auditions remotely, and will work with the performers at the Inside Out Theatre, Beijing from Vamos Theatre’s base in Worcester. The project will also be supported by the Vamos Theatre artistic team and will feature masks especially created by Russell Dean.
Rachael Savage commented, “We are delighted to be able to make this exciting international connection and to work with both our partners, One Production, and the talented performers in China. We are so looking forward to taking Vamos Theatre’s mask style to the streets of Shanghai.”
Rehearsals for the performance will begin in April with shows scheduled for early May.
