(for other personnel needs, click here or scroll down)
We employ a unique and complex process that reaches out from foundations in contemporary dance/movement into a post-medium approach to Performance. The work demands comfort with both intensive collaboration and ambitious self-direction – receptivity, flexibility, rigor, hunger for the unknown.
We seek particular individuals with highly developed embodiment practices (including vocal work, ideally) and the ability work outside of familiar rubrics and vocabularies. For this project we’re particularly seeking performers with a bulk of experience with site work and performance installation.

ADDITIONAL PERSONNEL NEEDS:
In addition to our ensemble needs, we are looking for the following two additional personnel:
Tour Guide: The Tour Guide will accompany the audience on the bus and provide a narrative and supplemental information about the sites, the city, and the work. Partially scripted, partially improvised, partially functional front-of-house, this role requires a strong theatre performer who can be both the front line and the through-line for the audience experience.
The commitment has some flexibility, with a minimum requirement of several weeks of rehearsals and 2-5 weeks of performances. Depending on interest, it can also include participation in the ensemble process and collaboration on scripting. The fee structure will be the same as other company members, scaled to the person’s responsibilities and time demands.
Production Manager / General Tech: This person will be responsible for assisting with planning, marketing, and execution of the event, with diverse duties including but not limited to: obtaining site permits, distributing advertising, corresponding with sponsors, documenting rehearsals, driving the cast transport during the event, operating basic lighting and sound equipment. Basically, Superman/woman. This could be several interns, and veteran performer, an event producer,… (or, of course, an actual production manager). Fee commensurate with experience and responsibilities / time demands.
