FKA Twigs launches talent search for mystery project

Fka Twigs has put out a public casting call for a new project.

The British singer-songwriter, real name Tahliah Debrett Barnett, issued the call to those with "extreme" talents on her Facebook page.


The quirky star, who is engaged to Twilight actor Robert Pattinson, asked artists who were available to work with her on the project in London, England, in October (16), to email her with examples of their skills.


"i'm (sic) looking for performers of all genres to audition for a project i'm making in london this october (sic)," she wrote. "no talent or style is too extreme. all performers must be based or be able to work in the uk. please email a recent cv, headshot and reel link to FKAtwigsaudition@gmail.com. looking forward to hearing from you!"


Before rising to stardom as a musician, FKA worked as a backing dancer for stars including Ed Sheeran and Kylie Minogue.


The 28-year-old, who often directs or co-directs many of her music videos, has also been utilising her dance skills to help teach wannabe dancers in Baltimore, Maryland, and recently hosted a free dance workshop in the city.


Some of those who signed up to the workshop were selected to appear on stage with her during her show at Baltimore's Pier 6 Pavilion venue on 20 July (16).


At the time of WENN going to press, further details of FKA Twigs' London project had yet to be announced.
