Ang Mohs Needed for Wayang Performance

Postby Rich D » Wed, 17 Jan 2007 3:55 pm

I promise you this is not a wind up...........

A colleague of mine is involved in a group who put on traditional Chinese operas (wayangs) in English. The next performance of "Intrigues in the Qing Court" will take place on Saturday evening 27th January at the National Library.

They are short of 2 white males to play the Allied military leaders - you will only be involved in 1 scene with 1 line and a 2 line song but it is a bit of a giggle. You will need to attend a couple of rehearsals but the pay back is that you get to see behind the scenes and the group are very welcoming in explaining what is going on.

I will be reprising my (not quite) academy award nominated role as the Brit but I believe there are spaces still for the US, Russian or French leaders. It helps if you can do a cliche'd accent but (dodgy) costumes are provided.

Please PM me for more details and I can put you in touch with the organisers.

If I were white I'd go. Sounds like fun hehehe. I saw a doco on CNA about foreigners now adopting the Chinese opera for fun. even the Japanese and Koreans are doing it. Sounds like it is all happening!
Can we go see the play?

Cheers!
Live it up! :)

I will post the exact details whan I know them.

Most of the cast are Chinese except for these roles for which the demographic is a bit restricted as there weren't too many non-white females in the higher echelons of the western military at the end of C19!

My pleasure.

I'm told that the post performance discussion continued until about 3.45am. Everyone else had left but that didn't perturb the Old Buddha until she was drowned out by the rumbling of her stomach.
