Rob Heaslip- Auditions

CASTING for touring in Ireland

Rob Heaslip is seeking performers for his outdoor production ‘Strawboys’ which is touring Ireland this summer.

Strawboys is a vibrant and energetic outdoor pop-up performance, featuring luminous straw dancers whirling to Balkan inspired beats. The work is a unique spin on the cultural tradition of the strawboys; identified by their ornate straw costumes while out rambling streets, fields, towns and parks, parading their merriment to the joy of onlookers.
