Katie Green is seeking a stage manager or technical director for the revised, expanded premiere of her 2012 Frontera Fest workshop of Little Mother to be produced on the outdoor stage at The Yard @ The VORTEX March 6-9 and March 21-24. March 27-29 must also be available in case of rain make-up dates.
"No experience is necessary, and I can bill you as stage manager, technical director, or tech crew, since all are fairly accurate descriptions. Your main responsibility would be operating the projector for the shadow puppetry, and helping to set up/strike each evening (minimal set). No blocking or nightly email reports necessary. I am only asking for a 3 1/2 week commitment starting February 23rd. A small stipend will be provided as compensation to help with gas.
"My only requirements are reliable transportation, personal responsibility, and a reasonable response time. Please email email@example.com, if interested for an in-person interview. I'll buy your coffee. : )"
Little Mother is the story of a young woman who must prostitute herself to provide for her paralyzed husband and newborn child. In order to escape her bleak circumstances, Little Mother develops a rich inner life—the love story of an elephant and rooster—with echoes from her past. Will she succumb to her own fantasies, or prevail through reality? Little Mother is a multi-media silent film for the stage told through physical acting, shadow puppetry, text, and live musical performance of an original score.
