Oddly Moving are seeking a circus performer specialising in contortion and/or hand balancing to work with us in the Research & Development of our new show ‘Weight.’ We are especially interested in BAME performers.

More about us

Oddly Moving tell stories on the outskirts of normal using circus, physical theatre and storytelling. ‘Weight’ is our second show following a U.K. tour of ‘He Ain’t Heavy.’ It is directed by Charlotte Mooney and produced by Turtle Key Arts.

To learn more about the company visit: 

‘Weight’ – info about the show

‘Weight’ will retell the Greek myth of Atlas carrying the world, and reflect on themes of responsibility, choice, physical and emotional weight. In this R&D we will experiment with different ways of navigating a set made of suspended and ground based objects of various sizes/weights and explore different ways of using circus to tell the story of Atlas.

Who we are looking for

We are looking for a performer whose primary skill is either contortion or hand balancing, someone who is excited by devising new work, comfortable using text on stage and interested in using their own autobiographical material relating to the themes.
