Job Details

Red Dog are looking for a technical SM for a show we are producing in autumn 2019 – it would be 3 weeks work from Sept 16 to Oct 5. There will also be up to 5 days (ones offs, some face to face others remote) over the summer or at the start of Sept to work directly with the video artist.
Rehearsals Sept 16 to 24 in Stroud
then we are at the Old Fire Station Oxford from Sept 25 to 28
Oct 2 – 5 Eveyman Studio Cheltenham
the fee would be £2000 all inclusive
We are looking for someone who would be happy to run a show that will include video projections and all that this may entail (macs, more than 1 projector…possibly 3 – each venue has a single projector that we hope we can use and we have 3 others that may be used) and happy to be very pro active in the rehearsal week and during the run.
The role would include working closely with the video artist to make sure the technical challenges within a theatre setting are met, and this may include defining  software/hardware for running the show and help with sourcing it (working alongside the video artist and other creatives)
About the play
When the Rain Stops Falling, by award-winning Australian playwright Andrew Bovell, is a compelling, tightly wrought drama that spans four generations and two continents. It is a powerful story that unfolds with humanity, surprising humour and hope despite the pervasive sense of loss and loneliness as fathers disappear and mothers retreat into their own world, as the past plays out into the future.
Set against a backdrop of cataclysmic climate breakdown Bovell’s deeply moving play is an epic and profound quest for answers – from ‘will our world survive us?’ to the more personal ‘how can we survive our own family histories and traumas?’
Dark themes suffused with hope and humour.
A contemporary play of biblical proportions, crossing from a claustrophobic flat in 1950’s London to the vast beauty of 2039 Alice Springs, interweaving stories of love, betrayal, abandonment and ultimately hope.
The play premiered at the 2008 Adelaide Festival of the Arts, was critically acclaimed and won numerous awards.
Running time approx 2 hours
Cast: 7 performers
I look forward to hearing from you
very best
