Co3 Australia Audition – we’re hiring!

Co3 Australia are seeking performers for the 2019 season of Mark Howett’s acclaimed Good Little Soldier. We are looking for a number of established performers to play roles that require exceptional dance and acting skills.

Characters:
Father; male late 40’s to mid 50’s
Mother; female early to mid 40’s
Son; male, late teens
Ghost #1; male late 40’s to mid 50’s
Ghost #2; male early 30’s

Performed with a live band and directed by Mark Howett, Good Little Soldier is set in an Australian suburban home and examines the damage inflicted on the mind and spirit of a soldier as it infects the family he returns to; collateral damage that is passed down through generations. Informed by the personal experiences of Director, Mark Howett (the son of a veteran), this intense style of collective art-making has forged remarkable passages of high impact physical theatre and lyrical moments of fragility and endurance.

Described as “a visceral, robustly physical, powerfully engaging, soul-shuddering dance drama…an intelligent and deeply moving statement about war, trauma, identity and family” (Rita Clarke, THE AUSTRALIAN).

Rehearsal & Performance dates: PERTH, March & April 2019; with possible subsequent touring.
