Casting call today for 'sexy' Carnival tent

Cirque de la Boheme, a new-style tent which will be open during the 2013 Carnival season, will host castings today from 9.30 a.m. at the CLR James Auditorium, Cipriani College, Valsayn.

The casting call is scheduled to end at 1.30 p.m.

The provocative cabaret-style Carnival tent will offer a 90-minute production that blends playful innuendo with daring eroticism and humorous storylines.

The production's founder and creative director, Addae Gaskin, said in a news release yesterday, "The adult-themed show seeks to explore human sexuality using mood, dance, drama, acrobatics, music and costuming that presents risque subject matter and ultimately challenges the cultural landscape of Carnival."

Castings are open to a wide range of creative professionals, including singers of all genres, dancers, actors, acrobats, gymnasts, variety acts and Carnival performers, as well as soca artistes and calypsonians.

Applicants are required to perform an audition piece and to submit a registration form which is available online at
