We are seeking a super efficient, pro-active and enthusiastic Production Manager to work alongside the company; an organised individual who can take the lead and also work collaboratively with us to realise and tour this brand new outdoor performance piece.
Commissioned by DanceXchange for International Dance Festival Birmingham 2016 (IDFB 2016), and co-produced by DanceXchange and Corey Baker Dance, Corey Baker is creating a new outdoor performance called Phone Box.
Corey Baker Dance (CBD) is celebrated for making engaging, exciting outdoor work – premiering this Spring, CBD’s brand new work Phone Box brings to life a nostalgic British icon with thrilling dance and a wacky digital sound-score. You’ll be captivated and amazed as you watch an impressive feat of acrobatic and physical moves in and on this vintage red telephone box. Phone Box promises to entertain and exhilarate in equal measure!
Experience of outdoor touring is essential and we are particularly interested in hearing from people who have experience of working with dance companies/dancers. People who know and understand the mechanics involved when working with dancers, being sensitive and sympathetic to their needs and providing a safe and calm environment in which everyone works. We are looking for someone who is enthusiastic about working with us and interested in the theme of this work; an overall ambassador.
The main focus of the work will start April 2016, with 10 days pre-tour preparing, 5 days touring as part of IDFB 2016 and at least 9 days of touring post-IDFB 2016. The point of the role is to ensure the foundations and practicalities for the production are strong and prepared for the company to deliver the creation and premiere performance.
