Teatro Vivo’s Twistov

Volunteers Needed!


A theatrical adventure through the streets and back-alleys of Shoreditch


A young migrant, Twistov, has gone missing in London. Inspired by Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist and the experience of migrant communities currently living in UK cities, Twistov explores identity and home and who we become if both are taken away from us.

Teatro Vivo are creating a new site-specific theatre show about arrival and survival in London and we’re inviting you to get involved.

We are looking for volunteer participants from the local community who are interested in developing their performance skills, have a passion for people and an interest in London’s diversity. If that sounds like you, come and join us!

We will be hosting free workshops at RichMix this October where you will work with professional actors, a director and choreographer to develop a character who will become part of our production of Twistov.

We are also inviting volunteers interested in being part of the back stage crew to get involved.

Come to one of our taster workshops and find out more.

About Teatro Vivo

Teatro Vivo transforms much loved stories into theatrical adventures; collaborating with communities and audiences to turn everyday environments into magical worlds.

We are based in South London and have been creating theatre since 2005. Inspired by classic stories and new writing, we make theatrical productions in any non theatre venue. Our aim is to inspire people to contemplate the nature of human engagement by creating performances that encourage a sense of play for all who experience them. We explore the environments that we work in to ensure our productions become an essential part of the community and a source of inspiration and entertainment for all.

We rarely audition, but regularly hold casting workshops enabling us to spend some time with actors we hope to work with. Our shows are usually devised allowing us to adapt characters to suit the right actors. We love actors who are up for a challenge, can collaborate, are supremely talented and have joy in their soul.

If you’re interested in working with Teatro Vivo, please drop us an email with your cv and covering letter explaining why you’d like to work with us  and we’ll put you on our database and invite you to casting workshops as appropriate.
