Call for Performers
We are looking for people who do not identify with a binary conception of gender to join the cast of our upcoming production, Symphony of Expectation. No matter how you question, resist or confound the heteronormative and binary system, we’d like to invite you to be a part of this project by The Airport Society in coproduction with Opera Vlaanderen and Klara Festival.
The Airport Society is an Antwerp-based cooperative of opera professionals who initiate projects that revisit opera and the classical music repertoire from queer, feminist and postcolonial perspectives. Having worked with transgender artists in two of our previous productions, in Symphony of Expectation we are aiming at exploring the classical repertoire and traditional opera production schemes through non-binary, personal narratives.
The candidates should be available on the following dates:
• one introduction meeting before 30/06/2019
• a workshop: 1–5/11/2019
• rehearsals: 25/02 – 14/03/2020
• premiere: 15/03/2020 in Antwerp (Opera Ballet Vlaanderen) and 18/03/2020 in Brussels (Kaaitheater)
Previous artistic experience is welcome but not necessary. Please mail your short bio and headshot to Florian: firstname.lastname@example.org before the 20th of June 2019. Read more about Symphony of Expectation on our website.
