TECH ROLE APPLICATIONS

T H E R E - I S - A - W A R is a comedy by Tom Basden bringing a Wes Anderson-esque aesthetic-set within a disturbed urban landscape- to the playroom . Think grey rubble punctuated very rarely by a splash of bold colour: a mark of humans barely surviving in a struggling land.

Synopsis: As soldiers, priests and scavengers roam a battle-scorched landscape, young medical officer Anne, desperately trying to reach a front-line hospital, finds herself abandoned and useless. The war is raging between the almost indistinguishable Blues and Grays, with no end in sight. On her journey Anne encounters, amongst others, an angry priest, some blasé gravediggers, a clown, a group of campaigners and a recently promoted General. But no one seems to know what exactly it is they’re mean to be fighting for. As grenades fly over head, Anne bumps in to Jess from her Year 3 primary school class ...and nearly gets shot for stealing an apple.

Moodboard on Pinterest here: https://www.pinterest.co.uk/oliviamarygillm/there-is-a-war/

Please see an example of one of my previous directorial collabs (The Willows In the Wind) with designers on my website here: http://www.direct-h.com/the-willows-in-the-wind.html

High levels of detail being paid to design will be inherent to making this project distinctive - every artist involved is to be treated as a collaborator.

In applications, please include what ever details and attachments you'd like to share — but here are questions to consider:

TECHNICAL DIRECTOR / LIGHTING DESIGNER / COSTUME DESIGNER

Why do you like the sound of the play?

What experience do you have? (images of previous work much appreciated. )

Could you convey to us some initial ideas for how you would make this aesthetic come alive in your chosen field? Speak-in this vein- about a specific moment in, or element of, the play.

Give an example of a piece of design you haven't liked in another production and explain why.

SET BUILDERS

What has attracted you to the the project?

Do you have experience building a set previously?

What is your carpentry experience?


SOUND DESIGNER

Sample of the kind of music (here 3WW by Alt-J) we are looking to use in the play: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZwBkXgWNs_M


What experience do you have ? (Please include any relevant samples).

What initial ideas do you have for sound design for There Is A War? Give ideas regarding a specific moment in the play.

Dear Lupin

7:00pm, Tue 30th January 2018 - Sat 3rd February 2018, at Corpus Playroom
Lent Week 2

Looking for

  • STAGE MANAGER
  • SOUND DESIGNER
  • LIGHTING DESIGNER
  • SET DESIGNER
  • COSTUME DESIGNER
  • PUBLICITY DESIGNER
  • PHOTOGRAPHER

Dear Lupin (week 2 Corpus mainshow) is looking for a prod team!

This play is based on the letters sent by racing journalist Roger Mortimer to his son, Charlie Mortimer, whom he nicknamed Lupin. Charlie is a wild, rebellious young man who makes his way across the world, while his father is sardonic and pragmatic, dispensing advice, relating anecdotes, and trying to keep his son on the straight and narrow. What starts out light-hearted delves into more serious issues, such as the personal tolls of addiction and bereavement, but always through the lens of their family bond.

SET/LIGHTING/SOUND/COSTUME DESIGN, STAGE MANAGEMENT
The setting is an attic/living room full of mementos of both mens’ lives, but often jumps out to the wider world via the characters’ memories, or gets inside their heads. There will be plenty of props and set dressing, and while the lighting and sound can be simple, there’s scope for more adventurous design. Roger also takes on various roles in his son's story, so numerous costume changes (including an army recruiting officer and a Soho sex worker) are required.

PUBLICITY DESIGN
This play is all about communication between a father and his distant son, nostalgia, joy, and regret. We’re looking for poster/flyer and digital publicity designs in that mood and we’d like publicity to be designed before week 0 next term.

PHOTOGRAPHY
We’re looking for someone to take headshots and publicity photos during the rehearsal process, and potentially to contribute photos to the publicity design.

If you’re interested, have any questions, or want to apply, email us at cl629 and cm885 (or contact us through camdram) - let us know why you’re interested, what previous experience you have (training is available if you have none), and any ideas for your role.

Contact: cl629@cam.ac.uk and cm885@cam.ac.uk
Deadline for applications: Tuesday 21st November 11:00pm

Speechless

11:00pm, Wed 24th January 2018 - Sat 27th January 2018, at ADC Theatre
Lent Week 1

Looking for

  • Technical Director
  • Videographer
  • Lighting Designer
  • Stage Manager
  • Deputy Stage Manager
  • Publicist

"Words are cheap. The biggest thing you can say is elephant" - Charlie Chaplin

After a dictatorial decree, all comic speech has been banned and comedians branded in an attempt to secure power. In a ramshackle theatre, a group of intrepid performers stage a new rebellion: using their physicality, subtitles, projections, sound effects, overdub, recorded lines, audio description and the audience themselves to create laughter.

Speechless is a devised comedy sketch show about the importance of communication, the dangers of censorship and the universal appeal of comedy.
It focuses on multimedia and is the first Cambridge comedy show to be BSL interpreted.
_____________________________________________________________________________________

The show is tech-heavy, so we are looking for a bunch of competent keen individuals who will work as a team whilst thinking creatively and out of the box.

However, there is a minimalist feel to the show due to the underground club feel so the lighting designer and technical director role may be more chill.

We are especially keen for an experienced DSM to handle what is likely to be a complicated tech cue list and a skilled videographer to help create projections for sketches.

The publicist should be creative: please include any ideas you might have to market the show in your application!

In your application, please include:
- Why you are applying
- Your past experience
- How you see your role
- What excites you about the show
- Any challenges you foresee and how you would overcome them

FRESHERS AND NEW TECHIES WELCOMED

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch!

genuinely so so excited

His Dark Materials - The ADC Theatre

11:00am, Tue 17th July 2018 - Thu 26th July 2018, at The Fitzwilliam Museum | Temporary Exhibition Space
Summer Vacation

Looking for

  • Publicity Designer

We are looking for an enthusiastic, creative and innovative publicity designer to work with us long term on this project! The role is a bigger one than Publicity Design usually is, as we'll be looking for someone to create initial publicity images and branding over the Christmas vacation to establish a coherent aesthetic for the production, and then continue to work with us across Lent and Easter on publicity design and branding for our associated events, then finally on show brochures and other print publicity closer to the show itself.

This is a hugely exciting opportunity to design lots of varying types of publicity (including ROLLER BANNERS which the current team are a little too enthusiastic about). While it will be a long-term commitment, in order to maintain a certain aesthetic and branding across all of our material, it also has the benefit of longer deadlines than typical shows, so provides a real opportunity to play about with innovative design.

To apply, please send a short application about why this role excites you, and a portfolio of recent design.

If you have any questions please feel free to email me at gfl23!

Lent Week 4

Looking for

  • Publicity Designer

** COMIC SANS MEN ** is looking for a PUBLICITY DESIGNER!

Comic Sans Men is bringing a brand-new improvised comedy hour to the ADC stage, without a script or a man in sight. Our stellar female and non-binary performers will improvise sketches, monologues, and your favourite improv games - all based on audience suggestions!

We're looking for a publicity designer to help us come with some fun, eye-catching design for the show! We especially encourage women and non-binary people to apply. In your application, please include:

1. Any initial design ideas for the show

Boys Will Be Boys

11:00pm, Wed 21st February 2018 - Fri 23rd February 2018, at ADC Theatre
Lent Week 5

Looking for

  • Lighting Designer/Technician
  • Sound Designer/Technician
  • Costume Designer
  • Set Designer/Builder
  • Stage Manager

The different settings and scene transitions which distinguish them are vital for Boys Will Be Boys to be visceral in the way it needs to be for the writing to have its desired impact.

As well as separating the spaces, there are also opportunities for creating satisfying parallels between the scenes; a central thread which articulates these spaces as ones which have been made to serve powerful men (The City office, the strip club, the high-end Hotel bar, the cabaret club etc.).

If you have found yourself observing these dynamics and becoming frustrated by them, then getting involved with the technical elements of this show might be your way to expose them in a physical, unforgiving way; to stand up creatively to sexism in the built environment. If you'd like any more information about the play or have any ideas, please get in touch.

I'm accepting applications in lots of forms so if you'd feel more comfortable meeting up in person to describe your ideas, then just drop me an email. (I am dyspraxic so totally get it can be rlly difficult to translate spatial ideas into a linear written email). If you'd prefer to write your application or send me drawings with annotations or have a typed conversation, those are all options too.

Contact: mw643@cam.ac.uk
Deadline for applications: Monday 18th December
