It is with enthusiasm that EIRA, with Teatro Municipal do Porto and Centro Cultural de Belém, announce that they are looking for performers willing to embark on the adventure of the remake of GUST, an iconic play from the 90s. The cast will include performers from the original production, with the rest being selected through auditions in Porto and Lisbon. As in 1997, we are mainly looking for participants with a taste for movement.
“Gust” is a 1997 work, directed by Francisco Camacho and with dramaturgy by André Lepecki, inspired by the photograph “A Sudden Gust of Wind” by Jeff Wall. Considered one of his most emblematic works, “Gust” was created in a collaborative process, involving an international group of 14 performers with diverse backgrounds and experience. In “Gust9723”, the work will be to make that then “Gust” come not from (your) past, but from a renewed will to offer you a (different) future.
To apply, you must fill in the online form with your CV and links to videos of your work as an interpreter: https://forms.gle/p9YDhtzd2Wt4pPtP8
We invite you to watch a promotional video of the 1997 show here.
