Driftwood Theatre’s 2018 Bard’s Bus Tour is looking for a Production Designer (scenic, props, wardrobe) for William Shakespeare’s As You Like It
Are you up for the challenge of designing a production which fluidly incorporates the unique quality of over 20 Ontario communities in order to challenge audiences to reconsider the world in which they live? Imagine epic, site-specific theatre with Ontario’s greatest outdoor spaces as powerful backdrops, where every performance is unique to each particular community.
The Bard’s Bus Tour is an annual summer Ontario tradition, touring to outdoor venues in over 25 communities for 23 years.
Looking back 100 years to Canada in 1918, As You Like It explores the right to be who we are, to love whom we choose and to do what we please in a time when women were fighting for equality, the government was regulating recreational substances, and conflict was shaping our country. Not at all like today, eh?
Driftwood Theatre is dedicated to reflecting Canada’s rich diversity on and off stage in all of its work. Diverse artists of all backgrounds regardless of age, disability, ethno-cultural identity or gender are encouraged to apply.
Rehearsals for As You Like It will begin in June 2018 in Toronto, with public performances between July 12 – August 12, 2018.
- limited power supply
- weather permitting, all performances happen outdoors
- production elements will be installed at each venue the morning of each performance, and struck post-performance, with a limited number of people
Production Designers are invited to make application by sending a brief cover letter and resume (as one pdf file) by email to Artistic Director, Jeremy Smith (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Designers hired will be paid a fee commensurate with Associated Designers of Canada rates for a G-House.
Application deadline: January 2, 2018
