SEEKING
See breakdown. Four Larks creates physically dynamic ensemble theatre. We are specifically looking for physical actors who are also experienced musicians (singers AND / OR instrumentalists). We will create an ensemble of actors that span racial, cultural, linguistic, and gender identities. We encourage qualified physical-actor/musicians of all types, sizes, and backgrounds to audition. We are particularly interested in performers with unique musical or physical backgrounds or methodologies. Four Larks music draws inspiration from folk, spirituals, world music, vaudeville, and pop as well as contemporary classical music (see our website: fourlarks.com for musical samples)

BREAKDOWN

Frankenstein is a new dance/music theatre work from Four Larks inspired by Mary Shelley's novel and its impact on contemporary culture. Through movement, vocal textures, and a live soundscape forged from instruments and found percussion, an ensemble of singing actors trace a trail from Shelley's desolate arctic fields and secret laboratories through to the present day.
We strongly encourage actors of all backgrounds, ethnicities and gender identities to audition.
