GUSH Theatre are seeking a Birmingham-based musician to join us for two days during an R&D period for our show GUSH!
Fee: £250 (£125 per day)
About us: We are an emerging theatre company based in Birmingham. We make original work and host regular Theatre Mix events to platform local artists. Our debut show GUSH! is an interactive, cabaret-inspired, feminist show devised by our small artistic team. As a company, we are about championing underrepresented voices and creating work that is fun and inviting.
About the show: GUSH! is an interactive, pop-culture extravaganza. Fun and fast-paced, it uses all of the content we consume daily to explore the weird world of the woman. After an initial R&D period, we planned a small tour in the Midlands for spring 2020. This was cut short due to the pandemic, and now we’re looking at further development over a two week R&D period. Within this time, we’re including a few days working with a musician to see what this brings to the process.
Dates/ time commitment: 2 days during w/c 11th January 2021. Rehearsal days will be approx. 5-6 hours.
Location: The GAP Arts Project, Moseley Road, Balsall Heath, Birmingham B12 9AH
The role: We are looking for a musician to join us in the rehearsal room to play. It will involve exploring with different musical ideas, music to accompany sketches etc. The ideal person would:
-Play more than one instrument
-Be comfortable improvising
-Be on board with the values of the show
-Enjoy exploring and playing in the rehearsal room
There’s potential for this person to work with us again further down the line, but for now we’re just looking for someone who can join in this process.
