SET DESIGNER call-out
Seeking a set designer for Hasbian at VAULT Festival 1-6 Feb, with work taking place throughout January 2022.
Due to the nature of the project we are only considering applicants that identify as LGBTQ+ for this role - please do not apply if this is not you.
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+ set designer to create and build a set for the show which will be suitable for the VAULT festival run and potential future touring.
Production meetings, rehearsals and set build throughout January, with an open dress rehearsal at Stanley Arts on Jan 28, and VAULT performances Feb 1-6.
We will not be expecting full attendance across the rehearsal process, but some availability across this period is required.
Flat fee of £800 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 Mon Dec 20th.
Interviews will take place 21-22nd December.
We will reply to everyone whether or not you're offered an interview.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
