VOLUNTEERS are sought for work on a new video installation piece, ‘The Towers of Ilium’ by artist Lynn MacRitchie to be shot at Coalhouse Fort Park in East Tilbury in April.
Volunteers must be over 18 and have a connection to Thurrock.
Volunteers are required to play the role of modern day Trojans. The Trojans will take part in a procession, to be filmed at the Park. The procession will involve elements of physical theatre and some volunteers will be required to carry a tower structure.
There will be workshops and rehearsals during February and March 2013.
This is an ideal opportunity for anyone interested in the performing arts, video production or who is aiming to apply to drama school in 2013/14 to work with a professional creative team and gain valuable experience of filming and the creative process.
YT went down to Coalhouse Fort to discuss the project with artist Lynn MacRitchie about how an idea hatched in 2009 is coming to fruition.
