People of Leeds – do you know an Uber driver? A butcher? A watchmaker? How about a stockbroker? A factory worker? A philosopher? An ICU nurse?

Transform are seeking Leeds workers to be part of an extraordinary event that will create a portrait of the city, this October.

Each person will be invited to work a shift on stage at Leeds Playhouse – and be paid for their time. They’ll demonstrate what they do and respond to questions about their work and lives.

Part performance, part exhibition of people, 12 Last Songs will play out over 12 hours at Leeds Playhouse on Saturday 23 October.

The full list of 12 occupations sought is:

Clock or watchmaker
A religious leader, such as an imam, granthi, priest, rabbi
ICU nurse
Stockbroker
Philosopher
Armed forces officer
Factory worker
Transplant surgeon
Track and Trace worker
Uber driver
Butcher
Acupuncturist

No performance experience is required. We’re not looking for actors.

If you’re interested in knowing more about how to take part, please email Jay Millard at Transform jay@transformfestival.org by 6pm, Tuesday 12 October.
