Criptonite is looking for disabled/chronically ill artists* for a piece on the theme of senses/pleasure.

With our theater project Criptonite we are developing a new piece on the topic of senses/pleasure. We are looking for a person to work with us and our team to further develop the piece and be a part of it on stage.

You don’t need to have a lot of stage experience, also young artists are welcome to apply.

Rehearsals will take place in Zurich from 26.6.23 – 8.7.23 and from 19.9.-3.10.

Performances will take place at Tanzhaus Zurich from 4.10.-9.10.23.

Rehearsals and performances are paid, according to the guidelines of the organization t. (tpunkt).

Please let us know your access needs in the application, including if specific rehearsal times need to be observed. All venues are wheelchair accessible and we work with audio description.

Criptonite is a crip-queer theater project by Zurich-based artists* Edwin Ramirez (they/them, none) and Nina Muehlemann (none/them).
