Theatre Designer/Visual Artist: Travelled Companions, Liverpool

Deadline: Tuesday 15 December 2015. Paid.

Call Out for Theatre/Set Designers and Visual artists who are interested inworking in children’s theatre to work with Travelled Companions Theatre company for Young Audiences. 2 days work between January and February 2015. £100 per day.

The work will be devised by the company and be of a physical nature with minimal language. Travelled Companions are a Liverpool based company and we are particularly interested in artists working in the North West, however we are happy to hear from artists further afield.

We are initially seeking to make contact with theatre designers and visual artists to input into a short Research and Development period for a new piece of theatre for young children, ‘5 More Minutes’. There is a possibility this opportunity could lead to future work with Travelled Companions on a full creation phase for the piece at a later date.

The show is a theatre production aimed at 2-5 yr olds. The show will include puppetry, music and play and will be suitable to tour to theatre venues.

We will be exploring themes around night-time and going to bed, through the eyes of young children and their parents. Bedtime is a daily routine for every family who relate to the difficulties, challenges and pleasures of preparing for and going to sleep. We will look at the different emotions connected to bedtime including frustration, fear, fantasy and excitement all set within a humourous, tedious and very familiar routine.
