Strawboys is a vibrant and energetic outdoor pop-up performance, featuring luminous straw dancers whirling to Balkan inspired beats. The work is a unique spin on the cultural tradition of the strawboys; identified by their ornate straw costumes while out rambling streets, fields, towns and parks, parading their merriment to the joy of onlookers.
Please see https://www.robheaslip.com/strawboys.html

Dates are as follows:
w/c July 4th – Rehearsals in Kerry
w/c July 11th – Rehearsals and Touring in Kerry
w/c July 18th – Touring in Clare
w/c July 25th – Touring in Galway
w/c Aug 1st – Touring in Galway
w/c Aug 8th – Touring in Galway

The fee is €750.00 per week. All travel, accommodation and per diems are provided by the company.
We are looking for performers with a strong sense of rhythm and while experience in performing outdoors is welcome, it is not essential. Those with training in any folk or traditional dances are also encouraged to apply.

Please send a brief introduction of yourself and CV to [email protected] with STRAWBOYS IRL CALLOUT in the subject line. There will be no audition, so please include a video of yourself dancing.
