03 Nov Recruitment: Development Producer – The Exploded Circus
Development Producer – The Exploded Circus
In the frozen moment of an exploded circus a new world unfolds; where risk becomes habitual and trust a necessity.
We are developing an all-female production for 6-8 performers celebrating the poetic possibilities of a fusion of circus skills and the strength and gracefulness of the performers.
Working with a breath-taking, immersive design, the stage will hold the epicentre of an exploded circus – with everything from the circus ring, chairs, sequins and fair-ground horses caught frozen in mid-air; a highly visual design that is still practically developed with touring in mind.
We are looking for a Development Producer to work in collaboration with Lina to manage the next phase of The Exploded Circus, securing partnerships and funding for the project to be ready to go into active production at the end of 2016, ready for touring in 2017. The bulk of the work in this role will need to be carried out between December 2015 and February 2016.
This production will tour in a circus tent for outdoor festivals or for venues that don’t have the capacity for larger scale circus performances. We are proposing that an alternative version will be developed for venues with the capacity for this work.
The ideal candidate will have a comprehensive network of venues and festivals who are interested in presenting Circus and a proven track record of producing work of a similar scale. They will also have demonstrable production fundraising experience.
Any experience of touring tented work or arts sponsorship is a bonus.
