Purpose of the role
The Community Cast Director and Facilitator will collaborate with Mind the Gap staff and Artists and the creative team to facilitate, develop and direct the community cast element of the production Leave the Light on For Me for performances in Bradford in June 2022. The post holder will also supervise a facilitator work placement for a Mind the Gap artist starting in Jan 2022.

The Production
Leave the Light on For Me is a new piece of devised outdoor theatre about the climate crisis to be co-created by Nickie Miles-Wildin, Joyce Nga Yu Lee and learning-disabled artists from Mind the Gap, commissioned by Unlimited. The Production will create new opportunities for learning-disabled practitioners and will have their voices and concerns at its heart.

The Production will be largely non-verbal using the natural environment, soundscape, physical performance, and evocative imagery. Audiences will experience a multi-sensory show with integrated audio description, that draws them in to engage with universal human stories about the climate crisis, making the issues feel relevant, encouraging hope for change and acting as a call for action.

Leave the Light on For Me will be performed at festivals and in outdoor public spaces in the UK. In Bradford the production will be made with an additional community cast of around 50 members alongside Mind the Gap’s professional touring cast.

This is a freelance position for a total of 50 days between November 2021 and June 2022.

Application Deadline: 5pm on Monday 25th October.
