Oddly Moving are seeking a Set, Prop & Costumer Designer to work with us in the creation of our new show ATLAS.

 

We are especially interested in designers from the Global Majority background but will consider all applicants with the relevant skills
and experience.

Oddly Moving tell stories on the outskirts of normal using circus, physical theatre and storytelling. ATLAS is our second show following a U.K. tour of ‘He Ain’t Heavy.’ It is directed by Charlotte Mooney and produced by Turtle Key Arts.

ATLAS – info about the show
ATLAS will retell the Greek myth of Atlas carrying the world, and reflect on themes of responsibility, choice, physical and emotional weight, in
particular relating to those with an ‘Atlas personality’ who carried extra responsibilities as children and how this affects their experiences as adults.

 

The design elements we are keen to integrate following R&D in 2019 are;

  • Screen incorporated into the set as using a projector & live video feed.

  • Exploration of scale e.g. table-top story telling with plastic toys as well as recreating the expanse of the universe.

  • Creation of a set of hanging golden apples that can be used as set, for pendulum juggling and are tourable.

  • Influences include Greek myths, treasured mementoes and heavy weight.

 

Tour is subject to latest government guidelines.

 

Who we are looking for
We are looking for a designer to come in during the creation phase of the project to help develop ideas around costume and set/prop design. The

  • Experience working with contractors and builders to get set created
