This Autumn/Winter Travelling Light is delighted to be touring Vixen, an original piece by Matt Grinter, about a young girl who is turning into a fox.
Saffi is 11. She lives on an estate with her dad and she is turning into a fox. After being scratched by a vixen in the raincoat man’s garden she begins to transform and dreams of running away to live with her fox family. For ages 7+, this show will tour into schools and community centres throughout October and November 2021 before heading to traditional theatre spaces from April 2022.
We are looking for one highly skilled female performer to fill this role, aged 16-30.
This performer needs to have a high level of physical storytelling, a good level of musicality and devising skills.
Travelling Light creates outstanding professional theatre for and with young people that inspires their thinking, engages their emotions and fires their imaginations.
