Robots Vs. Art


IN SHORT
WHO: MALE ACTOR 25-40 TO PLAY ROBOT
WHAT: COMEDY STAGE PRODUCTION
WHEN: REHEARSALS LATE MARCH. SEASON 14TH MAY-1ST JUNE. 
WITH: PHIL MIOLIN 

"Directed by Phil Miolin, Robots Vs. Art  is a comedy set in a time when robots have wiped out ninety percent of humanity and assigned the remaining ten percent of the population to hard labor in sustainable underground mines. The play begins when Giles, an underground miner (formerly an actor/ director/ writer) is called to the office of the Executive Producer Master Bot, that has been placed in charge of art and wants to see a new play he has written performed “by robot actors for a robot audience”.

The play was first performed at La Mama Theatre, Melbourne in May 2012 under the direction of its author, Travis Cotton and received rave reviews.

The play is performed by four actors. We have already cast three very strong performers in the other roles.

We are looking to cast the role of Soldier Bot / Claw Bot to be played by the same actor. Soldier Bot is an uncompromising enforcer. The Soldier Bots keep the humans in line by “chaining” them. Claw Bot by contrast provides much of the pathos of the piece. A simple robot Clawbots were designed for crushing rocks in the underground mines. Predictably, the actor will have to be comfortable working with oversized claw shaped hands. Clawbots are not held in particularly high esteem by the other Robots. Age range (25-40).

Rehearsals are scheduled to begin late March with the season running from 14 May- 1 June in The Studio.
