Call for interest Jan 2011

Northern Creative Theatre are a theatrical think tank who employ new approaches to creating theatre by blending traditional play writing with experimental technique.  Story and character form the foundation of our work, ensuring that it remains accessible as we innovate with structure, style, form and process.

We are an emerging company who are participating in a 12 month development scheme called ‘Incubator’ at the University of Leeds which includes a research and development phase for which this call out is particularly relevant.  This is a real opportunity for the right performer to make a significant contribution to this company’s aesthetic and working practice.

In January 2011 we are hosting workshops to ‘meet and greet’ interested performers who would like to collaborate on future projects. These will take place in Leeds during the week commencing 17th January at ‘The Hub’ (exact dates and timings to be confirmed).

We’re interested in meeting performers who have an interest in or experience of improvisation and devising. Our devising process requires a high level of commitment. We are looking for self motivated, hard working individuals who can bring plenty of ideas and raw material to the table. Sensitivity to music and sound in a theatrical context and the ambient/atmospheric possibilities of live performance would be attractive to us. 

We’re also interested in working with performers who have backgrounds in - live art, visual art, film, physical theatre, dance, music, multi-media - though the priorities outlined above remain paramount.

We would especially like to work with those who, as well as performing, are willing to take on other administrative/management/technical/creative roles within the company and, more generally, folk who take responsibility and value team work. Professional mentoring is a feature of the development scheme that the company are participating in. Support and guidance will be forthcoming for individuals who take on additional roles and some training may be available.

Please send your CV to Joanne Hartley by 17.00 on 12th January if you would like to express your interest in this opportunity and are available to attend the workshops w/c 17th January. If you are not able to attend the workshops at this time but would still like to get in touch, please feel free to do so.  We’re looking forward to hearing from you.
