Industry Listing, Job Posting.


Pencil Kit Productions is seeking two technicians/animators to join the creative team of Shadow Girls, an original production currently in incubation.

Created by Keshia Palm and Claren Grosz, Shadow Girls is a lo-fi experimental theatre piece that uses overhead projectors and tape players as it’s primary tools of storytelling.

The story details the relationship of Maggie and Amelia, two self-identifying “straight girls,” who’ve had a history of sex and friendship since they met in high school. After years of separation they meet again in young adulthood and begin an affair that is complicated by an unexpected pregnancy. Our story explores how internalized misogyny and homophobia complicate the articulation of bisexual identities within both queer and heteronormative cultures while delving into universal themes of secret sexual desires and the complicated nuances of love and friendship.

We are seeking two additional artists to join our project as animators. Participants will be involved in the following ways:

- Collaborating in the devising of the show
- Working the projectors and tape recorders during the show

While we accept applications from all passionate artists, we want to encourage applications from those identifying as female, queer and/or of colour. Successful applicants will:

- Work well in collaborative settings
- Have initiative and clear vision
- Be interested in alternative story telling
- Be Non-Union

To submit, please email Claren Grosz at Include a short statement of interest and relevant experience along with your resume. The deadline for submissions is October 8, 2016 . Successful applicants will be contacted for interviews within the following week.

If selected, rehearsals will begin mid-November. The first workshop presentation will occur in early December with potential opportunity to continue on the project in the spring. Artists will be compensated by honorarium.
