** DRAMATURG CALL-OUT **

 

In A Comedy, six individuals are brought together to face the task of creating ‘A Guide To Humour’. Unique, mischievous and controversial personalities collide as they explore the nature of humour in a post-COVID world of cancel-culture and sensitivity.

 

A diverse group of performers will devise this riotous and challenging stage of the R&D, asking us to consider what is funny nowadays...and what isn’t!

 

The dramaturg will be an integral part of the R&D, present at both phases of the devising process and involved in structuring and preparing the material for a final presentation. Other duties and responsibilities include:

 

- Administration and research of creative work with Co-ordinator

- Identifying potential audiences alongside the Producer

- Working independently with different members of the team, as necessary

- Attendance at two digital meetings/workshops

- Bringing a knowledge and/or understanding of comedy, access and consultancy

- A sense of humour, ideally.

 

This is an open call and, as such, we are extremely interested in hearing from applicants with protected characteristics and/or those from under-represented communities. Due to the nature of the project, some of the subject matter may be triggering.

 

Contract: 30 days between December 2021 and March 2022

Fee: £3,600 (plus expenses, as required)

 

Key Dates

Monday 10th - Friday 21st January 2022 (10 days) in Newport, South Wales

Monday 7th - Friday 18th March 2022 (10 days) in Newport, South Wales

Plus 10 additional days to be agreed with the Co-Ordinator and Producer

 

Due to budgetary constraints a base of within 30 miles is desirable, but this can be discussed with the right candidate.

 

If you’re interested, please provide us with a document outlining your experience for, and interest in, the role. This can be in written, audio or video format and should be sent to: acomedy2022@gmail.com. We will invite successful candidates to an informal Zoom chat the week of the 22nd November.

 

Deadline: Friday 12th November 2021, 5pm

 

This project is funded by the Arts Council of Wales and The Carne Trust, and supported by Tin Shed Theatre and Disability Arts Cymru
