JUSTICE IN MOTION are seeking exceptional male performers to join the core cast of their new outdoor production ON EDGE. We are looking for highly skilled and committed individuals, with strong acting and movement background, and excellent parkour skills, as well as an enthusiasm for socio-critical theatre and community.

ON EDGE is a physical theatre piece, that looks into issues of modern slavery within the construction industry, through a dynamic and unusual fusion of theatre and parkour. After an initial R&D phase in June 2018, we are now developing the work further to premiere at Brighton Festival on 11th May. Performers will be paid at Equity standard rates.
