Job Details

DESCRIPTION

Voyeur: The Windows of Toulouse-Lautrec is hiring understudies and replacement actors (TGNC & BIPOC performers are encouraged to apply) for our second extension which starts rehearsing immediately and runs through the end of January..

Critically acclaimed, Voyeur: The Windows of Toulouse-Lautrec, invites audiences to peer through the windows of old Paris, where unexpected moments of art, beauty, and seduction await during this pandemic-friendly theatrical walking tour inspired by Bated Breath Theatre’s long-running immersive hit Unmaking Toulouse-Lautrec (named one of the “best immersive plays and interactive theatrical experiences” by Time Out).

In this open air, intimate theatrical experience, audience members are guided through the dreams of iconic artist Toulouse-Lautrec as he recalls his final absinthe-laced years living and working in Montmartre. The sidewalks, doorways and windows of Greenwich Village become the setting as live accompaniment collides with the city’s soundscape, transporting you into the bohemian world of 1899 Paris.  The tour begins at The Duplex and ends at Judson Church.

Bated Breath is seeking actors and dancers to portray tour guides, can-can dancers, and various figures from Henri’s life (puppetry experience a plus) for our extension into winter.  Must have substantial professional performance experience and physical theatre or dance training.  Performers perform the same short piece several times each night and must have stamina, flexibility, discipline and positivity as we are tenaciously making theatre in these difficult times. 

Performances are approximately 3 nights a week and the positions are paid.
