CASTING PRACTICE
Although we welcome unsolicited applications through this website and at our email address, team@insaneroot.org.uk, we cast on a project-by-project basis from a mixture of 'in-house' connections and open auditions.
Castings are advertised through local and national industry websites, on our own social media and on this website. We cast from across the UK, but are particularly keen to continue building a South-West based ensemble.
Applications and suggestions are accepted in email format only (please include names in the subject for quick reference), and must include a recent headshot and comprehensive CV. Showreels are encouraged but not essential. 
We endeavour to acknowledge all applications / submissions, regardless of outcome, but regret we rarely have the resources to offer individual feedback.
WHAT MAKES AN INSANE ROOT ACTOR?
At the heart of our work is the ensemble: our adaptations demand actors to take on multiple roles, sing confidently (particularly harmonies), be adept at stage combat and have an ease of movement/musicality. There are aspects of devising to our approach, so confidence in improvisation is also desirable. 
Our performance schedules are often intense, with multiple performances a day, in challenging conditions. For the right performer this is a thrilling, unconventional and inspiring experience, and we are committed to the wellbeing and artistic cultivation of everyone we work with.
BACKSTAGE
We have a number of designers and crew members that we regularly work with, but are happy to receive applications and examples of work for future consideration. Please send CVs and enquiries to team@insaneroot.org.uk.
Our production team is dependent on the nature of the production we are creating so may at times involve a full crew including CSM, DSM, Operators, LX designer, Costume designer and Costume supervisor. At other times we may have just one SM. When opportunities come up they are advertised through relevant industry websites and through our social media.
 
We particularly encourage applications from those with site-specific experience.
