Wired Aerial Theatre are searching for 3 dynamic, charismatic performers with experience of working at height, to complete their artistic team for this summer season of Rigoletto on the lake stage at The Bregenz Opera, Austria.
Actors and dancers with a head for heights, parcour enthusiasts who love to be centre of attention, performers who are looking for adventure, climbers who perform and vice versa… and all must be good swimmers.
Bregenz Opera's production of Rigoletto (Directed by Philipp Stölzl) is performed on the lake stage in Bregenz (Austria) and is a jaw-dropping production with a moving set that resembles the head and hands of a huge mechanical clown. The head moves, lifts up to heights of 28 metres and swings from left to right, one hand holds an illuminated balloon which flies up to 45 metres during the performance, while the other manipulates dangling female aerialists during the famous aria, La Donna è mobile. Wired Aerial Theatre are responsible for all aerial activity within the show as well as ground-based acrobatics and movement too.
Do you have the skills we are looking for?
Wired Aerial Theatre is casting for different roles for the second production RIGOLETTO that will take place in Bregenz, Austria during Summer 2020.
