Folly Games

The Farce Awakens (Expired)

We are seeking a diverse range of performaners who have a lot of wit and playfulness! Application form

FOLLY GAMES:

Folly Games have been presenting a game at the Woodford Folk Festival for the last six years. At Woodford, The Game is a six-day theatrical game with over 6000 players, and has several levels of interaction, starting with a simple daring game and growing into a role playing adventure. We build beautiful elaborate sets and costumes and embellish the story world with an astonishing amount of puns and absurdities.

In 2017, Folly Games is coming to Brisbane with a brand new theatre experience for Anywhere Theatre Festival called THE FARCE AWAKENS. Now a 90-minute theatrical experience, you can explore and observe as this world is unravelled or be an active participant solving puzzles and challenging characters to ultimately decide the fate of the game world. 

SHOW SYNOPSIS:

Enter a Game World on the brink of destruction by a mysterious force known as The Dull. THE FARCE AWAKENS is a cocktail of parody, pop culture and puzzle rooms, with a twist of pun. An immersive and replayable theatre experience with multiple endings. You can explore and observe as this world is unraveled, or be an active participant solving puzzles and challenging characters to ultimately decide the fate of the Game World.

WHAT TO PREPARE:

  • It will be group auditions on Wednesday 1 March 2017 for 30 minutes consisting of improvisation/games and a 2-minute prepared piece.
  • The prepared piece should showcase character and physical work from a comedy or satirical play. Clowning elements desirable and Shakespeare is suitable.
  • Everyone and all are welcome apply – we are looking for people who have a lot of wit and playfulness!
  • Highly recommend you visit Folly Games Wiki to learn about the characters and world.

 NOTES FROM THE DIRECTOR

Before taking on this role I had been a volunteer performer with Folly Games for five years, which I think is a testament to how great the experience is. The role brings so much joy to the people you engage with and being able to interact on that level is extremely rewarding. Gianni Tills.
