Join the Hyphenated team!

Exciting news! We’re creating a full-length version of Home is Where… this September with the support of RichMix! We’re looking for a producer, a designer, and a stage manager/verbatim audio technician to join us for the next part of the journey. More details about the roles are below.

[UPDATE 24th MARCH 2016: I’m pleased to announce that the position of creative producer has been filled by Clarissa Widya! We are still looking for a designer and stage manager/audio technician.]

About Home is Where…

Home is Where… is a theatre piece made of real stories collected from interviews with Third Culture Kids, people who grew up in a different culture than their parents and created their own hybrid identities.

It’s verbatim, but not as you know it; the stories of Londoners, but not as you know them. Using scripted dialogue alongside verbatim interviews, movement, and music, Home is Where… explores the complexity, absurdity, and joy of our multicultural lives.

By connecting Third Culture Kids with each other and with audiences around the UK, we hope to change the stories our culture is telling about globalisation, belonging, and what it means to call this country home.

Developing Home is Where…

The core company of Hyphenated formed in 2014, and since then we have conducted more than a dozen interviews with Third Culture Kids.

In January 2016 we presented a 20-minute scratch at Camden People’s Theatre after a short devising period with an expanded creative team (5 performers, director, writer, composer, and movement director). In February 2016 we will reprise this performance at the Cockpit’s Theatre in the Pound scratch night.

Next, we’re looking for three additional collaborators, and pursuing opportunities to develop a full-length piece. In June and July, we plan to begin our R&D with a series of devising sessions, creating material to be shaped during 10 days of rehearsals in August. We will perform the new piece on Friday, 2nd September in the Studio Theatre at RichMix.

We aim to premiere a full production in London in 2017 and then tour the UK.

Alongside the performance, we intend to run audience engagement workshops, which will explore the themes of belonging, home, and Britishness in each community we visit.

We are seeking the following collaborators to join our team

Payment will be made at ITC standard rates, pending funding.

Stage Manager/ Verbatim Audio Technician (from June 2016)

  • support the director with scheduling and managing rehearsals
  • facilitate communication within the creative team, including rehearsal reports
  • film devising sessions and rehearsals and facilitate sharing of video
  • manage verbatim audio files, including cutting, editing, sharing, and performance playback
  • call/operate lighting, sound and verbatim cues in performance
  • bring your personal cross-culture or third-culture experiences to the collaborative process

Designer (from June 2016)

  • attend selected devising dates with an eye to how design can support early performance impulses
  • source set, props, and costumes within the agreed budget and timeline
  • create a flexible design that can tour to venues of various shapes and sizes
  • bring your personal cross-culture or third-culture experiences to the collaborative process

Please email [email protected] if you are interested in getting involved! It will help if you can tell us a little bit about who you are, what you do, and why you’re interested in this project.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
