Nuketown is a combined storytelling and protest-art piece about cities, public money and the possible end of life as we know it. It underwent a pilot in 2016 and now is going out on tour. The show involves 2 elements – a participatory build session with Lego where audiences add to an imaginary city equal in value to the proposed £205 billion Trident nuclear submarine replacement programme, and a live show where live camera feeds are used to explore this utopian city and tell the tales of its inhabitants.
We are seeking a Technical Stage Manager to support the touring and delivery of both elements of the project, manage the props, set and technical equipment, handle technical communications with venues, lead on getins & getouts, and operate sound and lighting.
- Experience of working stage management on small-scale touring theatre shows.
- Experience of using Qlab 3 for playback.
- Ability to work with studio theatre lighting desks to plot and program lighting cues.
- Strong communication and organisational skills.
- Based in or able to commute to Exeter.
- Availability for all tour and rehearsal dates
- Full, clean driving license.
