Call Out for Performers
Vision Mechanics are looking to expand their pool of performers for the 2020 tour of STORM.
We are reaching out for performers / physical theatre professionals / outdoor arts workers who would be available for rehearsals and tour dates in particularly May and July 2020 (dates TBC and will be discussed at interview).
“STORM, a ten metre tall goddess of the sea, has emerged from the deep to encourage us all to celebrate our seas, care for our coastlines and empower us all to put the environment first.
Two years in the making, STORM is a new feat of mechanical mastery created in response to the climate crisis by the formidable puppeteering duo Symon Macintyre and Kim Bergsagel.
Made from 90% recycled materials, STORM’s eyes are the colour of oyster shells, her hair thick strands of kelp, her voice the chorus of the waves. Aided by 10 puppeteers, STORM will walk across Scotland to to mark Scotland’s official year of Coasts and Waters 2020.
STORM is our most ambitious, challenging, and politically resonant project yet.”
