Opportunities

Theatre/Aerial Designer needed! Deadline 29th Nov

The Gramophones Theatre Company are looking for an experienced theatre designer for an aerial theatre show; Aidy the Awesome.

The Gramophones are a playful, all-female theatre company, who use inventive storytelling, physical theatre, clowning and circus to create accessible theatre with a focus on women’s voices

Aidy the Awesome is a new aerial theatre show for children 3-8 and their families. The show tells the story of a Grandmother and Granddaughter Super Hero duo. We are ideally looking for a theatre designer who has previously designed for aerial work as we would like them to design a structure with an engineer that the show would take place on. This structure would need to be adaptable to be easily erected inside or out and potentially vary in height. They would also be responsible for designing any other set and props.

Please send a link to your portfolio and a short paragraph about why you are interested in this project. Paid at ITC rates. We encourage applications from women and POC.
