Casting for IADT Short Film ‘Faded’



The National Film School at IADT is currently casting for a short film, titled “Faded”, produced in conjunction with IADT.

The film follows Alice, a woman with increasing mental deterioration. As she prepares to leave her home of many years, Alice takes one last trip down memory lane, distortedly reliving both the beautiful and nightmarish moments from her marriage.

We’re in need of a brown/hazel eyed actress to play the character of Alice, with the playing age between 55-80.

Renumeration: As it is a student funded film, the role is unpaid. However, we offer a small gratuity fee of €25 per day, with food and travel expenses covered by the production.

Shooting Dates: 4th & 5th April 2017

If you would be interested in the project, or should further details be required, please contact: by 2nd April 2017


Performers Required For Art Exhibition

Visual Artist Lisa Freeman is seeking 3 performers for an upcoming exhibition which will be held in Rua Red Gallery, Tallaght on the 13th of May.

Auditions to be held during the first week of April

Performance Outline
This is a new site specific performance for the gallery space at Rua Red. The broad theme of this performance is to investigate how one experiences, communicates and filters the miscommunications and misinterpretations in our daily interactions with each other.

This performance will be a part choreographed/part improvised gestural routine and will be defined and sculpted by four different elements: props, the performers bodies, costumes and sound. As the performance unfolds, the props which are placed throughout the space become activated. The movements with the props will allow the performers to ‘connect’ and disconnect’ with each other and the audience.
Using live performance, sculpture, sound and costume I wish to explore how re-assigning material and aesthetic value allows for the de-hierarchization of roles within social groups and how this can lead to miscommunication in our experiences with one another.  Also the performance will possibly durational 2-4 hours with some small breaks.

Payment A modest fee will be paid to each performer.

Contact if they have any questions or if they are interested in attending the audition
