Seasonal Design Coordinator
NOTE: This job listing has expired and may no longer be relevant!
The Canadian Badlands Passion Play is currently accepting applications for the Design Coordinator for the summer of 2013. To facilitate Production deadlines for the project, the contract will be a flat rate fee for meeting dates and deadlines between Jan 1st/2013 through to July 15th/2013. The initial Design meetings and Drawing Deadlines would be in Early January 2013 and onsite production dates would be from early may to mid July.
The Design Coordinator is a person hired to function as a intermediary between the Directors and the production team during the final years of a production script where the goal is no longer creating new looks and pieces but maintaining and completing the look and idea of what was designed in the initial two years of a script. Once major design is done in year one and two the Design Coordinator assumes the responsibility for maintaining and or completing the original design concepts with repairs and additions that arise in the following three years. They function as a Fight or Dance captain would to the Fight Director or Choreographer but with more freedom to bring their own ideas into production.
This is the first year we will be using a Design Coordinator so this position may evolve as needed. The individual should be quick on their feet and amiable to suggestion and changing circumstance. Any experience with Landscape Design & Architecture and/or practical Construction Design & Architecture will be a strong asset as the Passion Play set and stage are a large exterior playing space housing a large cast made up of well over 150 performers and animals. The ideal candidate will be familiar with both standard theatre design concepts and film production design, as this production world lives a little in both.
The Canadian Badlands Passion Play is one of Canada’s largest outdoor theatrical events. Now in its 20th season, the company annually depicts the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ in dramatic form. An epic story told on an epic scale, this year’s production features a creative retelling of the Gospel of John. The script will be originated by a mixed professional/volunteer cast of approximately 200 actors in a 2600-seat outdoor amphitheatre.
