Hasbian Lighting DESIGNER call-out
Seeking a lighting designer for Hasbian at Pleasance March 8 - 12, with work taking place Feb 16 - Mar 8.
Due to the community-specific nature of the project and themes being explored in rehearsals, we are building an all-LGBTQ+ creative team, and only considering applicants that identify as LGBTQ+ for this role.
About the show
An autobiographical comedy about coming out as a lesbian, only to discover that boys are also appealing.
Hasbian is a solo show which uses real teenage diaries, music, and teen-movie actors from the early 00s to tell a story of growing up in Brighton (the UK’s Gay Capital) under Section 28 (a 1988 – 2003 law prohibiting the “teaching of homosexuality as a pretended family relationship”).
Hasbian will fill Millennials with buzzy nostalgia, while exposing queerphobia in the most liberal of cities.
Written & Performed by Beth Watson.
Creative Producer Josephine Shipp.
Funded by Arts Council England.
We're looking for an LGBTQ+ lighting designer for Hasbian's Pleasance run.
The show's design uses animated projection throughout, including projected captioning, so knowledge and/or experience of lighting that works with and complements projection will be beneficial.
Production meetings and rehearsals from Feb 16th with tech all day on March 8th.
We will not be expecting full attendance across the rehearsal process, but some availability across this period is required.
Flat fee of £600 to include meetings, rehearsal attendance, and independent work.
We want the amount of work you put in to be reflective of the fee available, and will be happy to discuss what this means about the level of work you can provide.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your CV and website (if you have one), and a brief line or two about why you're interested in the project.
We only have a limited number of interview slots available so may not be able to speak to everyone depending on the level of response we have.
Applications close 5pm Thursday Feb 10th.
Interviews will take place 14 - 15th Feb.
We will reply to everyone whether or not you're offered an interview.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
