Chaddick Dance Theater is seeking a Lighting Designer for our winter performance “Meetings of the Mind”.

The piece is set on the plaza, mezzanine, and amphitheater of the Austin City Hall on Cesar Chavez Street between Lavaca and Guadalupe. “Meetings of the Mind” is an evening-length, site-specific theatrical dance piece that explores the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the search for the next direction on the path of life. Viewed from the platform of mental and intellectual safety, the work depicts the ego’s attempts to let go of its desires and longings on the quest for the heart’s next honest direction.

Candidates should have experience in theater or dance. Must be able to lift 25 lbs and stand for long periods of time.

Duties for Lighting Designer include creating and managing all aspects of lighting for the production. The light plot must include the locations, colors, and dimmers for all lights that are to be included in the production, along with lighting cues. Work hours Monday, February 27 & 28, March 2, 3, 4, 5, 6pm-10pm. The compensation for this position is $18-25/hr dependent on experience.

Founded in 2007 by Cheryl Chaddick, Chaddick Dance Theater is a participatory group of dancers who have come together to express common life experience through modern dance and dramatic forms. Our purpose is to create works that reflect the social, emotional and physical experiences of our dancers, our audience, and our community, and in so doing, reveal the fundamental humanity that connects us all.

If you know of anyone who would be interested in this opportunity or if you’re excited to be a part of this dance performance please express your interest and describe your experience and include your resume in an email to chaddickdt@gmail.com addressed to Cheryl Chaddick.
