FFFDC AUDITIONS (article first published : 2000-06-23)

Fantastic Flying Fish Dance Company will hold auditions at the Dance Factory in Johannesburg on June 28 at 19h00 for their touring season of Romeo and Juliet. The audition will consist of a classical ballet class by Mark Hawkins and a contemporary study taught by David Gouldie. Dancers are asked to bring an updated CV and recent photograph with them. Dancers need to be proficient in both classical and contemporary dance styles.

Rehearsals start in Durban in September and performances conclude on 30 December, 2000. The tour takes in the Winston Churchill Theatre, Pietermaritzburg; Port Elizabeth's Opera House; the Baxter Theatre in Cape Town and the Roodepoort Civic Centre, ending with a Christmas season in The Playhouse Drama in Durban. There are still other venues to be confirmed.

This new full-length version of Romeo and Juliet set to Prokofievís glorious and sumptuous score is choreographed by FFFDC artistic director Mark Hawkins and resident choreographer David Gouldie. Direction is by Robert Whitehead, set design is by Sarah Roberts and costume design by award winning fashion designers, Amanda Laird-Cherry and Colleen Eitzen of the Durban Designer Emporium.

Fight scenes will be staged by Taekwando black belt instructor Donald Jolley. To book an audition space or for more details contact Peter Taylor on (031) 209-0142.
