Dancers, Physical Theatre Performers and Musicians, Theatre-Rites


Theatre-Rites is developing an exciting new immersive production for an international Festival in 2021. Directed by Sue Buckmaster, we will be collaborating with choreographer Gregory Maqoma and designer Ingrid Hu.

Our creative team and performers will be exploring how culture and the customs and habits of different childhood homelands affect our sense of who we are, and our relationship with the spaces we inhabit and the world around us.   We will be starting our first development phase in July 2019.


  • Highly skilled contemporary dancers
  • Highly skilled physical theatre performers
  • Highly skilled musicians (we are particularly interested in vocalists and percussionists) 

We will be holding 2-hour workshop auditions every day from Sat 20th to Tues 23rd July.
