WANTED: 3 FEMALE ACTORS with movement skills or DANCERS with acting skills,
FOR ELENA BAJO'S PERFORMANCE AT FORT DU BRUISSIN, LYON (FRANCE) 11th and 13th of September, within the framework of the Lyon Biennial
-3 female actors (the performance will be in French) to be a part of an experimental piece, outside of the 'comfort zone' in an art exhibition space in Lyon
The piece is created by Elena Bajo, a visual artist who has exhibited internationally and focuses on the social, political aspects of the site in the city of Lyon. Bajo combines performance with large scale installations to investigate the political and social conditions of change in post-industrial structures, creating site specific work and a space of collective action.
The performers will be required to perform in the space of Fort du Bruissin (Lyon). They will be required to do both improvised and choreographed script/movements determined before hand with the artist. The generator of the piece is a political text/poem. This political text-manifesto will be handed to the performers and it will be used to generate their individual script/choreography. Total duration of the performance around 20 min.
2 days, 1 hour/day individual work with the artist and 1 day (1 hour) run-through in the space with all the performers

If you don't have a link to video online let me know and I would send you a text fragment to prepare something short 1-2 min that you could record in Skype or video camera or iphone.
You will receive dvd video footage and photos of the performance as well as credits on the program. The greatest reward of this project lies in that you're interested in the experience. This is an event widely advertised and expected to be a good exposure.
