Jobs: Wanted Set and Costume Designers for Fostering Ohana (Paid)
Wanted Set and Costume Designers for “Fostering Ohana”(Paid)
PlayBuilders of Hawaiʻi Theatre Company
Aloha. Theatrical Set and costumer designers are needed to collaborate with award winning playwright, Terri Madden, while she writes a community collaborative play by, with, and for the foster care community titled “Fostering Ohana.” She would like the set and costumes designed before or while she begins writing to help her can envision and explore possiblities as she writes. The completed design will then be built in the spring of 2017 for the production which will travel to churches, and parks statewide over a 6 month period in 2017. These positions will be paid negotiated rates, based on education and experience.
Both the set designer and the costumer must be imaginative, and willing to collaborate with one another, as well as Terri. Terri wishes to think in terms of a “Julie Taymore” type of vision. Costumes and set should integrate together with the script. For example- Apron strings may become a road. Dancers may change character while on stage. Chairs may become cars. Beds can become monsters. Curtains can become eyes. Further chalanges are that this must be compact, lightweight, and easily transportable. Rich imaginations are needed and appreciated.
Terri has an MFA in theatre and studied set design under Joseph Dodd and playwriting under Dennis Caroll at the University of Hawaiʻi, so she has a good idea of what is required. “Fostering Ohana” is made possible thanks to our partnership with the Queen Liliʻoukalani Children’s Center, Partners in Development, Catholic Charities, Hawaiʻi, Family Programs Hawaiʻi, The Epic Foundation, and the generosity of the Victoria S. And Bradley L. Geist Foundation and the Hawaiʻi Peoples Fund.
PlayBuilders of Hawaiʻi Theater Company is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 corporation. Our mission is “to gather and share real stories that resonate with, empower, and connect individuals throughout the culturally rich and diverse communities of Hawai’i.”
