Orphaned Limbs Collective is an artist group with an exciting interdisciplinary project looking for a South Wales-based technician to collaborate with.

It has been developed over seven sites in Wales, Scotland, Madrid and Puerto Rico, will be finalising development in August 2017 and launching touring in Wales in late 2017-18.

Desirable qualities: Experience of working with dance and aerial harness

Essential qualities: Working knowledge of QLab or compatible platform


Key responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Liaising with artists for all technical requirements including sound-checks, programming, lighting and specific staging requirements.

  • Setting staging elements and assisting with aerial rigging. Some working at height and manual handling is required.
  • Liaising with technical staff of venues when relevant.
  • Power-down and pre-close safety checks.
  • Maintaining back-ups of all lighting & sound cues and settings.

The candidate would need to be available the week of 21-27 August for a residency week in Swansea with performances in Cardiff. The daily rate would be £100/day (approximately 3-5 days work). Hours/work days and travel to be discussed according to availability and demands of the project.

You are welcome to send us samples of your previous work or video links supporting your application. Interviews will be held on the week commencing 7 August.
