Seeking eight performers to work with Award Winning International Artist Saeborg!

Submerge are looking for eight performers who are comfortable wearing restrictive latex to take part in the sensational UK premiere live performance of Pigpen, by award-winning Japanese artist Saeborg. The performance will take place at Submerge Festival on Saturday 19th March (Paid)

In Pigpen, a giant nursing mother pig bound for the production line gives birth to a litter of dancing rubber piglets. Both brutal and cartoonish, a frequent image for Saeborg is the image of breeding livestock and the artificially controlled processes of animal husbandry. Though the performers inside no longer look like human bodies, they act as a powerful metaphor for the way women’s bodies are often seen as sites of production.


Interested performers must be:

Due to small sizes of the latex costumes and the nature of the material we are looking for women (including trans women) who fit the below costume measurements:

1 Performer – FARMER GIRL

1 Performer – PIG

6 Performers – PIGLETS


We are able to offer a £100 fee per performer.


If interested in either role please contact Liv at [email protected] with a picture of yourself, your measurements, that you are comfortable performing in restrictive outfits, are available all day on Sat 19th March, and a brief comment about why you want to take part.

This opportunity is not suitable for those with a latex allergy or extremely sensitive skin.
