Regional tour and Edinburgh Fringe Festival run of
Domestic Labour; A Study in Love
by Mehrdad Seyf, 30 Bird
Commissioned by The Bush and following completion of Research & Development during 2013 Domestic Labour: A Study in Love will embark on a short regional tour before heading to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2014. We are currently looking for one female performer or performer/artist to join co-devisors Nicki Hobday and Chris. Dugrenier.
Description: female 25-35, experience of devising work or creating own work, versatile all rounder. Build not important. Good sense of rhythm and musicality.
Fee: £420 weekly for full weeks plus allowances, otherwise nightly performance fee (subject to confirmation of funding).
Domestic Labour: A Study in Love is a witty investigation of gender roles, love and the very domestic battle over who does the washing up.
A love story; a love story about the mundane and the monumental, the personal and the political, the dust behind the bed and the Iranian baby boom.
A love story told through the nitty gritty of daily life – the rituals of cleaning revealing stories about past girlfriends, marriage, Islamic law and Brigitte Bardot – as the ‘man’ and his absent wife negotiate the power games of equality. Darkly humourous and visually rich Domestic Labour highlights the absurd details of our daily lives and their resonance within our wider world.
We are currently looking for one female performer or performer/artist to join 30 Bird’s co-devisors Nicki Hobday and Chris Dugrenier from March-June and 21 July to 24 August 2014.
