PRODUCER for Bristol co-production and national tour of Clockwork by Phillip Pullman
South West / Part time / Project fee / closes 14th January
DumbWise theatre company are seeking a south-west based producer for their new actor-musician adaptation of Phillip Pullman's 'Clockwork", in co-production with a major Bristol venue. Dates are currently set for a four week run in Bristol Oct/Nov 2019 followed by a UK tour in Spring 2020.
We now need an enthusiastic and ambitious producer to take the reigns and realise the show for professional production, including tour booking, liaising with venues/partners/literary agents, overseeing R&D process (early May 2019) and working with co-producer and company to realise and manage budget.
Knowledge and experience of actor-musician work would be ideal but not essential. However, candidates must have experience in touring small scale work, co-production, engaging and contracting venues, contracting actors and knowledge of the financial handling of a project of this scale.
This position will be contracted on a project basis with a view that the successful candidate could become a longer-term member/associate, collaborating on the strategic development of the company and the development of exciting forthcoming projects. We are therefore particularly interested in meeting south-west producers with an interest in collaboration and the making of new actor-musician work.
This is a paid position. Time commitment and fee will be discussed upon interview. Informal interviews will be held in Bristol towards the end of the week commencing January 14th.
"Clockwork" is a dark and magical gothic fairytale for family audiences, which deals with the nature of time, story-telling and the existence of the soul. DumbWise theatre are the country's leading actor-musician company, adapting timeless stories for the stage by fusing live music with dynamic storytellling.
