CIRQUE DU SOLEIL AUDITIONS (article first published : 2005-04-21)

For its ten current productions and upcoming creations such as an unprecedented live theatre production celebrating the musical legacy and extraordinary experience of The Beatles, the acclaimed Cirque du Soleil is seeking new talent and will be holding auditions for physical actors and dancers in Johannesburg and Cape Town in May 2005!

The Cirque du Soleil Casting Team is continually on the lookout for new and talented artists. Holding auditions is the primary means by which Cirque du Soleil recruits new talents. Scouts search the globe for outstanding artists who are ready to embark on a new adventure.

Since 1984, Cirque du Soleil has carved out a special niche for itself in the world of performing arts. Through a mix of street performance, circus arts, dance, theatre, music and singing, Cirque du Soleil has given life to a magical new universe. With its original music and performances, the company always tries to challenge the limits of the human body and spirit. As music is a major component of every Cirque du Soleil show, all songs and music are performed by live bands.

While in Johannesburg and Cape Town, Cirque du Soleil Casting Team will be specifically seeking physical actors with keen creative skills, solid acting training and strong theatrical experience (clowns, contemporary mimes, street performers, artists with unique acts, exceptional skills or unusual body types).

Also needed are high-calibre dancers with strong technique, stage presence and versatility (modern, contemporary or jazz dance - world and ethnic dance - classical dance - unique and diverse styles – acrobatic rock ’n’ roll).

Auditions are on an invitation-only basis and only selected candidates will be contacted. For more details, for the address for resumés, photos and demo material: (Johannesburg) Bridget on 011 673 4995 or 011 673 9272 and e-mail: info@buz.co.za or (Cape Town) Allison on 083 635 6312 or e-mail: diva_events@iafrica.com
