Looking for:

  • Lighting Designer
  • Prop/Set Designer

Lighting Designer:
Seeking an LD who would like a challenge - environmental/immersive theatre can be a pain to light but it can also be really fun and amazing! The show will be performed in the black box at Homerton and I am open to ideas about unconventional lighting sources. This can be as easy or as complex a show to light as you would wish.

Prop/Set Designer:
While the production will be more minimalist in terms of set, this is a great opportunity to unleash your creativity in terms of playing with less is more and multiple uses of props/set pieces. Design heavy, work load minimal.
