Scottish Dance Theatre is seeking an Asian Male Performer for a co-production with Stellar Quines and Royal Lyceum Theatre

Scottish Dance Theatre are casting a lead male dancer/performer role for an upcoming production of The Lover, a unique collaboration between Royal Lyceum Theatre, Scottish Dance Theatre and Stellar Quines.

Bringing together two of Scotland’s leading Artistic Directors, Fleur Darkin and Jemima Levick, for the first time, in the first ever UK stage adaptation of Marguerite Duras’ work, The Lover is a sensual adaptation of the semi-autobiographical novel by Marguerite Duras.

Set in 1920s Vietnam, detailing her affair as a teenager with an older, wealthy Chinese man, The Lover will fuse spoken word and contemporary dance, as well as French, Chinese and English, in a performance by one actress and four dancers.
