Dido & Aeneas: Research & Development Casting Breakdown Released!

NMT Automatics is seeking four actors/dancers (2 male, 2 female) for our forthcoming two week Research & Development period on our next project: Dido & Aeneas. A theatre-dance adaptation of Virgil’s tragic story from The Aeneid, underscored by a fusion of Purcell’s music and an electric, industrial soundscape.

The culmination of which will be a free public and industry sharing on Saturday 12th September.

In association with The Redbridge Drama Centre, Greenwich Theatre and Deptford Lounge, workshop material will be performed by a cast of four alongside members of two youth groups – who we will work with to generate material during the research period, thus rooting the piece in its community.

NMT Automatics’ contemporary, dynamic retelling of this ancient story explores conflicts between old morals and current attitudes, creating haunting resonances with cultural intolerance in the 21st century.

The R & D will take place from Tuesday the 1st of September everyday until the sharing on the 12th.
