Swallow-a-Bicycle Theatre Call for Lighting Designer
i-ROBOT Theatre @ Beakerhead
Lighting Designer Duties
– Responsible for designing and executing lighting design for i-ROBOT Theatre at Beakerhead
– Please Note: i-ROBOT Theatre will be performed in a non-theatre space. Therefore, lighting designer is responsible for outlining and helping to source necessary light equipment for the space.
– Designers will be encouraged to experiment with lighting sources and to collaborate with technology communities to research new technology.
This September, Swallow-a-Bicycle presents i-ROBOT Theatre a two act original production performed in an industrial warehouse style space. i-ROBOT Theatre integrates performance and cutting edge technology to create live Science Fiction. It will be part of Beakerhead – a city wide spectacle of arts and engineering.
The play explores a near-future world heavily populated with robots. The show uses technology as spectacle to ask philosophical questions on the nature of identity and autonomy. The show is a re-working and retelling of the original 2011 production (and limited 2010 run) that received rave reviews. This version will be developed to be bigger, bolder and integrate more technology.
