Justice in Motion is seeking exceptional male performers and parkour athletes with strong theatrical skills, who have an interest in social justice and community, to join the cast of our touring and film production ON EDGE. We are planning a UK tour of festivals and venues, as well as create a film version of the show through summer and early autumn 2021. Successful candidates will be required to be involved in both the live tour and the film.

We encourage, and especially welcome applications from people of diverse ethnicities and backgrounds. Travel bursaries within the UK are available for selected applicants to make auditions as accessible as possible.

The production is a physical theatre piece that looks at modern slavery in the construction industry, using a dynamic and unusual fusion of theatre and parkour.

Audition details will be updated when funding has been confirmed.

ON EDGE is supported by Without Walls and was commissioned by Brighton Festival, and Out Theatre Festival of International Street Arts and Circus.

The project has previously been funded by Arts Council England, the Chartered Institute of Building and other commissioning partners. It is supported by the Gangmasters & Labour Abuse Authority and charity partners the Medaille Trust, Hope for Justice, The Salvation Army and Unseen.

Successful applicants will be required to attend all rehearsal dates and be available for specified dates during the touring period. Details will be available during the audition workshop. Performers will be paid at Equity standard rates, need to be based in the UK, and have a valid working permit. Travel, accommodation and subs are covered during rehearsals and on tour.
