Upswing Casting Call

Casting Call: Catch Me

Upswing is seeking two skilled performers for our new outdoor touring production Catch Me.

We would like to find two performers who are playful and open to devising movement with other cast members. 

Upswing productions are ensemble pieces where all artists contribute to making the production collaboratively. A team working approach is vital. We want to work with performers who are happy to experiment and muck in where needed. We value the people that we work with and aim to create a challenging yet fun working environment.
