Production Team for CARE; an immersive theatre/ installation at The Horsfall, Manchester

Architect's impression of The Horsfall

We are co-producing a new immersive theatre/ installation piece as the opening project of The Horsfall in Manchester in late November, 2016 and we are looking to complete our creative team.

The Horsfall is a new space and programme exploring how creative practice can have a positive impact on young people’s mental health. It is part of 42nd Street; a mental health organisation with 35 years’ experience providing holistic mental health support to young people. See www.42ndstreet.org.uk @TheHorsfall

CARE is a co-production between The Horsfall, young carers from across Greater Manchester and lead artists Tom Bowtell and Annette Mees and explores the lives of young carers:

Annette is a director and artist and currently Creative Fellow of WIRED and The Space. For 7 years she was a director of Coney where she conceived and directed the company’s large-scale projects including Early Days (of a better nation), A Small Town Anywhere and House of Cards at Kensington Palace. She was named artist to watch by Courvoisier’s Future 500 and was creative consultant on IK-prize winning project Sensoriums at Tate Britain. Annette’s work often investigates how technology can enhance participation.

Tom is a director and writer and currently Artist Director of KIT Theatre, an organisation specialising in creating immersive theatre for, by and with young people. KIT specialises in creating Adventures in Learning, immersive projects which erupt in classrooms and deliver curriculum learning using a mixture of immersive theatre, digital tools and game mechanics. Tom is also the director of Tricycle Theatre’s Young Company and in March 2016 directed Bred, a piece of devised immersive theatre about how teenagers talk about sex. Tom was a co-director of Coney (www.Coneyhq.org) between 2008 and 2015 and was the lead writer and co-creator of The Astronautical Challenge, an Adventure in Learning which won the National Charity Award for Arts, Culture and Heritage in 2011.

We are now looking to complete our production team, specifically:

  • Production manager and/or stage manager
  • Set designer
  • Sound designer / composer
  • Lightning designer 
  • Locally based facilitator/ theatre maker with experience of working with young people, to assist Tom and Annette
  • Video maker/ evaluator – the project will be evaluated principally through film/photography

We are looking for bold practitioners who have a passion for working collaboratively with young people and artists and are interested in exploring the boundaries between performance and installation.

If you are interested and available in and around November 2016, please contact Rebecca.Coughlan@42ndstreet.org.uk  by email stating the role you are interested in and if possible including your CV. Please be sure to mention any experience working with young people. If you’d like to know more first, you can call Julie McCarthy; Creative Producer at The Horsfall on 0161 2287321 during office hours.

If we feel your skills potentially match what we are looking for, we’ll invite you for an informal chat with Annette and Julie in August. This will be in central Manchester.

All professionals recruited to this production will be asked to provide a current enhanced DBS.
