Touring Spain - English Theatre Company Needs One Female Performer
Based in Asturias, on the northern coast of Spain, Moving On performs original, musical and participatory shows especially written and designed for Spanish students of English. The work we do is in State High Schools, Primary schools, Adult Education Centres and private schools. We perform all over Spain in organised local tours. We also hold English through Theatre and Music workshops on a daily basis in local Primary schools where we have over 160 students.
We are offering employment from December exclusively to tour and perform our two shows: 1 for Secondary and 1 for Primary, throughout Spain.
SALARY - good salary with accomodation included!
The monthly salary, after tax, and including all accomodation is around 1200 Euros.
Salary is a combination of fixed monthly salary plus “per show” rate, therefore, the more shows performed, the more money you earn but you are always guaranteed the monthly basic. On top of this, actors are paid a travel bonus and the flight to Spain to begin the contract. Also, the performer is provided with an apartment for their own use when not touring. This is at no extra expense to the employee. Spanish Social Security and taxes are paid for by the company. The first 2 - 3 weeks of the contract are for rehearsal. Full details of all of this will be given if you are selected for audition.
All the shows that we produce are “two-handers”, male and female, and are performed entirely in English. The shows are all highly participatory, using many techniques common to Cabaret or Commedia dell’arte in order to animate and encourage the audience. There is no “fourth wall”, and every show takes place in a context within which the audience has a role: e.g. in a restaurant where the audience are the clients; in an airport where the audience are waiting to catch flights. The shows are comical and fast-moving. They involve rock music, songs and the active and total participation of the audience. The objective of our shows is not so much to teach English, but rather to motivate and enthuse. The audience, and ourselves, must have a good time.
Spain is a dynamic and varied country. If you tour with us you will see what appears to be 12 countries in one. For the duration of the contract, you will have your own flat to which you will return when not travelling. Food, drink, rents etc are much cheaper in Spain, and especially in Asturias, than in Britain. The company has its base in Gijon, Asturias, which is a city on the northern coast of Spain and offers incredible beaches, amazing mountains, lovely food and a great nightlife.
