Surge is looking for three physical performers for it’s upcoming performance of Beautiful Bones. Beautiful Bones is an outdoor theatrical and musical pandemonium for street performers, massed mixed ability trombone orchestra, a brass band and sound design.
Beautiful Bones unmasks a western cultural attitude towards our own mortality that tends towards avoidance, taking inspiration from world cultures that embrace and celebrate death as an integral part of life, e.g. the theatrical irreverence of Mardi Gras, the darkly comic undertones and dramatic colour of The Day of the Dead celebrations, and the abandon of the pagan festivals of Beltane and Samhain.
