Next Meetup

This year Artman English will be producing their latest show If I Only Had A Chair. If I Only Had A Chair was created by the Artman English Ensemble last year and performed to a delighted audience in June 2018. We have now applied to have the show accepted into Vault Festival in London and once we have completed the casting, we will discuss with the group their availability for other performances during spring /summer 2019. If you would be interested in performing in the piece then please contact me for an informal discussion about the project, as it saves me writing an essay about it here! Here are the basics... Actors will be working from a script and will be playing multiple roles. Rehearsals are once a week at theStockwell Playhouse, which has been our base for five years now. We will be rehearsing for 60 hours (20 sessions) between October and the end of February Rehearsals will be on Tuesdays from 7-10 pm Tuesday 25th Sept Tuesday 2nd / 9th / 16th / 23rd / 30th October Tuesday 6th / 13th / 20th / 27th / November Tuesday 4th / 11th Dec (33 hours) 2019... Tuesday 8th / 15th / 22nd / 29th Jan Tuesday 5th / 12th / * 19th / * 26th Feb + * plus one dress rehearsal (27hours) *Dates are provisional awaiting confirmation from Vault Festival It is important that participants understand that they need to be availble for all of the sessions, although exceptions can of course be made for grandma's 100th birthday and the like :) Participants pay £20 per week (totalling £400) as their contribution to production costs, to be paid in two halves with the first instalment to be paid in advance. We are, of course,always open to discussing paying in more instalments, in order to support our students taking part...we understand that London is an expensive city!!! The participants will not have any further costs regarding hiring of venues at either Vault Festival or other performances. The festival begins in January 2019 and closes in March – if we are successful in our application we will be performing the show twice as part of the festival, although it will be Vault Festival programming team that will decide when. We have requested to have a performance slot towards the end February. I have attached a link to our If I Only Had A Chair dossier for you to learn more about the content of the show and the Artman English background and beliefs as directors, performers and educators. Artman English will be hosting other workshops and events during the year...stay tuned for further news :) We look forward to working with you, Warm regards, Oli and Paloma Mobile:[masked] Email: [masked] Website: Facebook: Instagram:
