Do you want to be part of a team of artists creating theatre and dance performances in schools? These projects are week-long residencies taking place throughout Alberta. Each one is based on a unique theme chosen by the school.
Trickster Theatre is hiring artists for projects this fall as well as the rest of the 2022-23 school year.
Each artist will support classes in creating theatre pieces based on the chosen theme.
The ideal candidate will have some experience in at least two of these areas: Choreography, Improv, or Devising theatre. Experience with lighting and sound equipment, as well as sound and video editing is an asset. A class 4 drivers license is also an asset.
Artist fees are approx. 30-50% higher than equity rates (our artist fees range from $850 – $1200 per week). Out of town residencies also include accommodation and per diems. Preference will be given to artists that can go on 1-3 week tours leaving from Calgary or Edmonton. All the work takes place in Alberta.
Although this is an audition for this season, most artists typically work 8-26 weeks a year (depending on their availability), for 5-10 years. We hope you stick around!
