Volunteer (Calgary): Call for Roving Performers – i-ROBOT Theatre

Robot Performers Needed

Swallow-a-Bicycle Theatre Company is presenting their newest production of i-ROBOT Theatre this September 11th – 22nd as part of Beakerhead; a city wide spectacle of Arts, Engineering, and Science. To help promote the show, we are looking for some awesome performers to dress up, put on some silver body paint, and have some fun interacting with the public as a funky Robot character! This can be anything from a typical “b-movie” cardboard box robot, to a love-sick cyborg, or a wacky humanoid. The possibilities are endless!

Want to see the show for free!? Join us for 3 or more Robot shifts and you’ll receive a free ticket!

This is a super fun, creative and collaborative performance opportunity. Show off your skills around town at one of the biggest festivals to take place in Calgary!
