1927 is a Margate & London based performance company that specialises in combining performance and live music with animation and film to create magical filmic theatre. 

1927 are looking for highly skilled musicians, multi instrumentalists and actor musicians to join us for a series of hour-long workshops to explore musical themes inspired by ancient tales from the Aarne-Thompson-Uther index and to experiment with a new “musical palette”.

The workshops promise to be fun, exploratory and will give you an insight in to how 1927 creates.

We would like to hear from skilled musicians who can read sheet music and who are keen to work in an open minded and experimental way.  A willingness to improvise around a theme/text would be great. 

Musicians we are keen to hear from are:

  • Violin
  • Viola
  • Bassoon
  • Oboe
  • Clarinet
  • Piano
  • Trumpet
  • Hurdy-gurdy
  • Percussionists
  • If you play a portable non western instrument we would be very keen to hear from you!

Singers we would love to hear from are:

  • Bass, Baritone, Tenor, Alto, Mezzo and Soprano Singers

The 1 hour workshops will take place in London or Kent on Thursday 26 April.

Participation will be free of charge.  As part of 1927’s commitment to equality of opportunity if participation in a workshop would prove difficult due to your socio economic circumstances, please do ensure this is noted in your application so that we can discuss this with you and explore how 1927 might support you to participate. 

How to apply

To apply to participate, please forward your CV and a cover note introducing yourself to by 5pm on Wednesday 18 March 2018.
