Faust Ensemble Open Call


18 > 25 OLD: ENSEMBLE MEMBER FOR A BRAND NEW PRODUCTION, FAUST
A Frân Wen, Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru and Pontio co-production.

INTERESTED IN JOINING THE CREATIVE TEAM BEHIND A NEW PROFESSIONAL THEATRE PRODUCTION?

Frân Wen, Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru and Pontio, are searching for 20 young people between 18 and 25 years old to join an ensemble for our next production inspired by the German classic, Faust.

NOT YOUR REGULAR ENSEMBLE

The Faust ensemble will sit at the heart of the creative team from day one.

From writing, devising, creating and rehearsing, you’ll play an integral part in presenting this theatre production and reimagining the classic German folklore.

We’re looking for people who are ready to share, throw everything into the pot, and work with others to create something amazing.

Please note you will be required to attend sessions and rehearsals in the Menai Bridge/Bangor area.

THE FAUST CONCEPT

Our Faust will bring together young people and professional actors to explore the story where a man sells his soul to the devil in a hunt for power, and the search for experiences that push boundaries to extremes.

The audience will be encouraged to immerse themselves into new experiences. They’ll be introduced to the magical and dark world of Faust, where the story’s path will be entirely in their hands.

Under the inevitable Covid cloud, how we’ll present Faust to our audiences will need to be explored with the ensemble. But we’re ready brace the uncertainty and create a production that will be truly innovative and exciting.

HOW TO APPLY?

Send us a paragraph, video, song or any other creative method to post@franwen.com to explain why you want to be a member of Faust ensemble.
