Paid Technical Theatre Placement

Organiser: Tangle

Tangle is offering a paid placement for a technical theatre maker at any career stage (UK resident, aged 18 and over) to train and develop their skills on our upcoming touring production, Ben Jonson’s Volpone, which rehearses in London, opens in Bath and tours nationally from 27 January – 18 April 2020. This is part of Tangle’s AMPLIFY offstage skills development scheme.

We encourage applicants from different backgrounds with different experiences, skills and stories to join us and influence, develop our working practice and be part of the process. In line with Tangle’s remit, we particularly welcome applications from BAME people.

Working with the production’s sound and lighting designers, the placement offers an opportunity to gain experience in any or all of these areas:

  • Being a part of the overall research, preparation and production process
  • Lighting a stage production predominately with practical lighting sources (as opposed to conventional stage lanterns).
  • Scoping and devising recorded sound effects (mixing conventional effects with various forms of amplification)
  • Enhancing live song and music with amplification (static mics etc)

The programme is self-designed with options to engage pre-production, during rehearsals (London), and through the technical and touring period (13 January – 18 April 2020 with the technical period 20 – 26 February).

The successful applicant will receive a fee of £750 for the engagement with up to £250 offered in addition for travel and accommodation costs if needed and two complimentary tickets to the London press night in March 2020.

Please contact Artistic Director Anna Coombs for an application pack.
