Set and Costume Designer and Maker Wanted
We are super delighted to be working on a new piece of outdoor physical theatre for young audiences, focusing on the theme of adapting to forces outside of our control. We are looking to work with a Set and Costume Designer over the course of our Research and Development.
More info on the project can be found here:
The project will consist of three weeks of R&D with work in progress sharing's from Monday 18th January – Friday 5th February.
We would love to work with you. We can offer a fee of €650 a week for three weeks plus a separate budget for costume, materials and making.
This is a research and development process so we are open for you to experiment at this stage as we plan to apply for further funding to tour the show later in the year.
You will be designing and making for two performers and it is vital that they can move and dance. The show will also be set outdoors and weather friendly so warm and waterproof layers are also important. The set will be very light as this show will be performed outside the windows of primary school classrooms.
Never Mind The Weather is funded by the Arts Council Commissions Award and is delivered in partnership with the Riverbank Arts Centre, Newbridge, interspersed with in-progress showings at local schools.
Please send a CV (no more than 2 pages) and links to/ examples of previous work with a brief cover note or details of relevant work to date.
Email – firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on Friday 31st of December, 2020.
If you have any further questions about the project, don’t hesitate to get in touch via email with Martha Fitzgerald Director.
Our Rehearsal Dates interspersed with sharing's at local schools with Performers are as follows: Monday 18th January – Friday 5th February but we are open to flexibility if you would like to split the three weeks into 15 days work between the start of January - February 5th.
Fee €650 a week or €1950 for 15 days (travel and accommodation expenses available for anyone outside of commuting distance from Newbridge).
Please indicate on your application whether you or your client would require travel and accommodation if selected for this project.
