    Applicants to apply before Friday 3 November 2017, 12pm

    Mind the Gap (Bradford) is developing a pool of freelance Music practitioners with facilitation skills.

    Mind the Gap is a touring theatre company based in Bradford with a large Academy strand. We are currently seeking freelance Musician/Tutors to work with learning-disabled Artists and Students. Musicians will deliver a variety of music skills amongst the Academy programmes and core company work, ensuring a high level of output, learning and accreditation for the students.

    We are seeking great musicians who can plan and lead training courses, as well as people who can work creatively alongside a team of artists. The ability to perform and share skills in a range of musical forms will be an advantage, but those with a particular specialism are also welcome to apply. Previous experience of working with learning-disabled young people and adults is desirable but not essential – all tutors work alongside support staff from Mind the Gap.

    Mind the Gap is looking to expand its team of theatre production and technical freelance staff. Mind the Gap is one of Europe’s leading theatre companies creating work in partnership with learning disabled artists. We tour productions regionally, nationally and internationally. Our custom designed Studios in Bradford offer exemplary access and excellent quality equipment and facilities.

    Mind the Gap is looking for experienced multi-technicians and stage management staff to contribute to touring projects and site specific work, as well as working at Mind the Gap Studios in Bradford on other projects including our busy Academy programme.

    Current touring shows include “Mia”, a contemporary, fast paced and episodic piece about learning disabled people being parents directed by Resident Director Joyce Nga Yu Lee. It is messy, raw, tender, absurd and serious. It is currently showing at Summerhall Old Lab as part of Edinburgh Fringe 2017, and will then tour to studio venues across the UK.

    The ideal candidates will be: calm under pressure, level-headed and with exemplary interpersonal skills. On the practical side we need people with lighting, sound and DSM skills. We have tended to work with really good ‘all-rounders’ so a willingness to cross-over disciplines and get involved is essential.
