Angel Exit Theare are a Dorset based physical theatre company creating high quality new shows which we tour nationally.
We are associate artists at Lighthouse Poole's Centre for the Arts.
We are currently seeking a projection designer/video artist to collaborate with on our new show The Drive, which will be created in Poole this summer.
We would need the projection designer to be available for the R&D dates (April 18th - 21st), then to develop material before rehearsals in June / July and then to work with the designer & lighting designer during the rehearsal period to create the video work for the show.
The fee is £1575 and we can cover travel to Poole and accommodation in digs in Poole (our Arts Council and local authority funding has been confirmed, so this is guaranteed).
We have some video footage already that we filmed with another video artist in Manchester (where some of the show is set) during a previous period of R&D last year. We are planning on using two portable projectors.
The Drive tells the story of two women on a tense road trip from London to Oslo. As they get further from home the secrets of their shared past emerge. The show looks at friendship, grief annd guilt and coming of age in the 1990s. We would like to use video projection creatively to explore these themes and we're keen to hear from artists who have technical know how and strong creative and collaborative approaches to the medium.
Dates: Research and development - 18th - 21st April, Lighthouse Poole
Rehearsals - 19th June - 7th July, Lighthouse Poole
Preview shows - 7th July - 22nd July, South West (Poole, Dorchester, Lyme Regis, Bristol)
Re-rehearsal prior to Edinburgh 23rd - 28th July
Video artist would not be needed for the full period but would certainly need to be avilable for the initial R&D period.
