THE SHOW

Superheroes is a collectively created physical theatre show that takes place in an alternate reality where youth with super powers are trained to completely accept the privilege of their gifts, and then to use their powers in the service of good.

AURA – Health!
REV – Speed!
BRICK – Strength!
STRETCH – Pliability!

THE CAST

  • Each character can be performed by actors from any gender-identification, race, ability or age. You need to be good movers but don’t have to be dance or combat trained. If you require a support device to assist with your movements, the choreography will be adapted to accommodate those requirements.
  • The cast will attend a 5-day dance and combat training course, facilitated by the team and a combat specialist.
  • Due to this creation environment, we ask that those who submit for this show are comfortable collaborating with generosity and are open to supplying their authentic voice to be embedded in the dialogue of the show.
  • Double casting- Stretch/Sibling and Wit/Disdain/Guardian
  • We are hiring two swings who are guaranteed two performances, each. Roles will determined when casting.
