Description

Heritage Open Days commission Re-Dock in collaboration with SHIFT and The Courthouse Hotel (Knutsford). Supported by Knutsford Promenade Association.

Your chance to be part of this exciting work with Re-Dock on a programme with National profile as part of Heritage Open Days Unsung Stories commissions!


Re-Dock are seeking extras age 16+ to feature in the filming of the play Regina v Turing and Murray - an immersive, participatory play with an additional separarte Virtual Reality (VR) opportunity to extend the experience for audiences.


Sunday 3 September – 3pm-5pm at The Courthouse Hotel, Knutsford

We're looking for extras to attend in 1950s dress / neutral smart clothes to create the courtroom scenes!

Set in the actual courtroom in Knutsford where Turing was sentenced, the script explores the external pressures and the internal thoughts of the people in the courtroom, creating parallels with contemporary experiences of discrimination and law-making. The work draw parallels with historic and contemporary LGBTQ audiences, linking discussions around notions of the civic, law and discrimination.

Please note, this is an unpaid voluntary role offering excellent exposure as part of a national programme of work.

Regina v Turing and Murray is part of the National Trust's Heritage Open Day Festival. This new art commission is an opportunity to reflect upon the court hearing of Alan Turing and Arnold Murray, offering a fresh interpretation of the events and experiences of the key protagonists.

SHIFT is pleased to work in partnership with Heritage Open Days to co-commission this work and enable the Virtual Reality (VR) digital exhibition element to play a strong part in the experience of audiences and participants beyond the three live performances.

For queries or further information email producer Hwa Young Jung at Re-Dock on hwayoung@re-dock.org
