About the event

Highly Sprung and Upswing are looking for a community cast with a passion for outdoor performance to take part in an exciting opportunity as part of a large-scale performance as part of Coventry’s Great People and Places programme in the run up to Coventry’s year as UK City of Culture in 2021.
 
HOME is a performance event celebrating our understanding of how home is what we build around us… our heritage and our future. 
 
The performance will take place above the heads of the audience, presenting vertical dance performed on the side of an iconic Coventry building. 
 
Combining aerial dance, video projection and a powerful soundtrack to immerse audiences in a story inspired by Coventry’s architectural evolution and how we shape the places we call home.
 
We are looking for an amazing cast of Coventry locals to contribute to the final performance, creating visuals and soundscapes and producing inspiring short films to spread the word about the performance. You will also be invited to create a short piece of live performance which will be presented as part of the final event to a live audience. 
 
If you are passionate about the arts and would you like to take part and contribute to a performance event celebrating Coventry, then we would like to hear from you.
 
No prior performance experience is needed, just the desire to take part and the ability to commit to weekly performance workshops taking place from May to July.
 
As part of the community cast, you would be supporting the main production as a vital part of the event, and have the opportunity to be creative, gain performance skills, build confidence, work with some brilliant theatre makers and be part of a unique event in Coventry’s history. 
 
We are looking for the young, old and everything in between. You can have absolutely no drama experience – we will teach you basic techniques and skills. However, you must be able to commit to the majority of dates we need you. Most importantly, you must be enthusiastic and excited about this vital, topical and creative project. If you have availability issues, please do still consider applying and provide us with details – we may be able to work around your commitments.
