Audition Notice

Hyperion

Hyperion
directed by Alexa Ispas

Govanhill Baths, 24th – 28th June 2014

A young, beautiful girl looks up at the morning star and makes a wish.
‘Oh come to me, Hyperion, glide to me down a beam, enter my spirit and my mind and over my life gleam.’ As he envelops her in his cold rays night after night, the morning star wishes he could give up his immortal fate for just one hour of earthly love…

Based on ‘Luceafarul’ by Romania’s national poet Mihai Eminescu and brought to life using a range of contemporary artforms such as hip-hop and video projections, this show will be a unique theatre-going experience designed to put the emerging performance venue at Govanhill Baths firmly on the map of the Glasgow theatre scene.

Audition workshops:
You can come to either one of these two workshops: Wednesday 26th March or Thursday 27th March 2014 at Govanhill Baths, starting at 7pm. Each workshop will include an introduction to the show and the performance venue, some physical and vocal warm-up exercises, and some improvisation work.
