Opportunity for creatives to tell stories on our streets – literally

Plymouth Culture is very excited to help bring Third Angel to Plymouth this summer, as part of the Heritage Active Zone Cultural programme HAZ, to make a brand new version of their participatory, story-swapping, map-making performance for public spaces The Desire Paths.

And we’re looking for performers or artists with strong connections to Plymouth to be part of their team. 

The Desire Paths is a conversational, durational performance that involves drawing a street map on the floor with chalk, talking to the public and inviting them to rename a street after a hope or dream for the future. You can see photos and video of indoor and outdoor versions of the show here.

We are looking for 3 performers experienced or interested in gathering and swapping stories and drawing/writing in performance. You might be an actor who likes to draw, a visual or graphic artist interested in public engagement, a presenter, or anything else that uses those skills! 

You’ll be needed from Thursday 30 June to Sunday 3 July inclusive for rehearsal and performance, plus a little time on Monday 4 July to collate story write-ups, paid at £130/day. 

Interested? We would love to connect you to meet up and have a chat with Third Angel! We’d particularly like to hear from artists who have global majority heritage, d/Deaf or disabled artists and those from marginalised communities. 

Third Angel’s co-artistic Director Alex Kelly will be in Plymouth on 25th of May for a site visit and to talk to interested performers. To book in for a conversation, please click here:
