Casting call - Tall Tales Company


Korte omschrijving

Casting call

For their new production, which is inspired by the classic novel A Clockwork Orange, Tall Tales Company is looking for circus performers with physical theatre skills as well as (physical) actors with acrobatic skills.

About the show
Fifty years after Stanley Kubrick’s famous movie adaptation, Tall Tales Company will create a circus version of the classic tale about violence and free will with five to seven circus performers. In the show the themes of the story are related to current events and we challenge the audience to take a look at its own fascination with violence. Which measures are governments allowed to take to combat the risk of violence, and at what cost? And when do you become an accomplice as an audience member? In a series of scenes in different circus disciplines, the surrealness of violence combined with circus skills allow for a balancing act on the border of humour and absurdism.

About Tall Tales Company
Tall Tales Company is a Dutch contemporary circus company that creates both outdoor and indoor performances in which circus skills are combined with (physical) theatre. A Clockwork Orange is the final instalment in a series of projects in the development of directors Harm van der Laan & Maartje Bonarius to circus maker and the first large project for the company after five smaller productions. The show will tour 15 to 20 theatres in The Netherlands and Belgium in the spring of 2021.
