Opportunities

DESIGNERS CALL

Call out for Designers with a Costume Specialism

We are looking for a Designer for our autumn Primary Schools tour of Stand Up! (And Boogie) – Dramaturg, Daniel Jamieson (Flying Lovers of Vitebsk).

The design will be costume focused and we’re looking for elements of fun, surprise and reveals, with inspiration from carnivals woven in. There will be 4 characters and they may have surrounding props and equipment to be considered as part of the design.

The piece will tour from October 2021 into 2022 and so will need to be robust and easily cared for by the performance team. We will be aiming to follow the Theatre Green Book’s baseline recommendations for this tour (www.theatregreenbook.com) with sustainability and the ethical nature of the design being considered from its conception.

DESIGN FEE: Minimum of £4,000, plus expenses

PRODUCTION BUDGET: Approx £8,000, excluding VAT, tbc

We particularly welcome applications from Designers of diverse heritage and those from groups that are under-represented in the arts.

What is Stand Up! (And Boogie) about?

Two Light Bulb inspectors are quietly carrying out their jobs in a Devon Primary school, when it gradually becomes clear that there’s a lot more to them than meets the eye… Culminating in an eruption of live music, jaw-dropping dance and fantastically vibrant costumes, the pupils come to know these larger than life characters for who they really are, and are given the chance to join in on a celebration of the pair’s new found confidence.

Key Dates:

Research & Development: 3 days tbc, week of 5 July 2021
Rehearsals begin: 27 September 2021
Tour begins: 18 October 2021

We are hoping to interview in person in the week of the 28th June, at our base of Emmanuel Hall in Exeter, following the latest COVID government guidelines and all travel expenses will be reimbursed.

Please send a short letter, cv and portfolio to Annie Chave, annie@theatrealibi.co.uk, by 5pm on Mon 21st June
