Negative Theatre is looking for actors!
We are looking for dedicated and enthusiastic actors for our upcoming project, Bosphorus, written by Gorune Aprikian and Éric de Roquefeuil, directed by Ozgur Cinar. Bosphorus is a new play about the life and legacy of Hrant Dink, a Turkish-Armenian journalist, writer and human rights activist who was assassinated on January 19, 2007 in Istanbul, Turkey. The play presents a phantasmagoric sailing of Hrant and his Turkish friend Nedim in Bosphorus.
Please note that this is for the preparation phase of a future professional production of the play. There will be only one public performance in the form of a staged reading.
