Details of Role

„Who is Your Name“

For a staged performance work by Amsterdam-based visual artist Nicoline van Harskamp, we are looking to cast up to 10 stage performers (m/f) of different ages and backgrounds. The piece has the working title „Who is Your Name“ and consists of several shorter monologues on the topic of names: how they can be given as well as withdrawn, inflicted, collected, hidden or adapted.

Proper names cross boundaries of languages, cultures, religions and nationalities in ways that most other words can't. The piece will be staged in several languages, including Irish and English. We are looking for a multi-multilingual cast, as different proficienty levels, dialects and varieties of language are at the very core of the performance.

The play will first be staged in Dublin in October 2018.

Nicoline van Harskamp will be in Dublin in February to open a solo exhibition of earlier works on video (Febuary 15th – March ) at the Project Art Centre.

She will also do research for the work and meet potential performers. If you are interested to set a meeting between February 13 and 25, please send an email with your availablity between those dates, as well as relevant information about yourself.
