Upswing are looking for three brilliant performers for an extended R&D of a new creation.



We are looking for artists who are available for this development period (see dates below) but also interested in developing a longer-term relationship with Upswing and the work, to tour in the full production 2023.



‘Falling Together’ is a new circus theatre project combining circus and stand-up comedy to explore the politics of power and the complexity of identity. Conceived by Circus Director Vicki Dela Amedume and Stand-up comedian and writer Athena Kugblenu. We are looking for a cast of three performers to work with us, and filmmaker Dan Martin, to develop a script framework and structure for the show.



The show will draw from wider research and conversations but also the experiences of the artists and creatives involved, so we are particularly seeking artists who identify as Black or from a Global Majority background. All the roles are for people of any gender identity.



Thematically this work will tread challenging territory around the way we talk about race, ethnicity and gender. We will put in place structures to support all creatives to navigate the creation process safely. Ultimately our aspiration is to make a piece of work that holds themes with respect but also has a lightness of touch.
