Les Innocents/The Innocents is an immersive quest for epic queer love. Inspired by a real concert that took place in the Paris Catacombs in 1897, the story follows Gui, a composer on a search to awaken the spirit of their deceased lover: Mathilde. On their journey, Gui encounters eccentric and musical ghosts who misdirect their pursuit and inspire chaos for the living and dead. Les Innocents/The Innocents is a vintage, queer thriller investigating our relationship to imperfection, death, and failure.
(re)discover encourages artist of all backgrounds to apply, especially individuals from underrepresented groups.
The Set/Environment Designer will create and execute the design of the performance space. Les Innocents is an immersive show in that; audiences will journey up a set of stairs into an open space with non-traditional seating. This will be in a shared space so the majority of design will be in hanging fabrics and minimal evocative items.
The Set/Environment Designer will be expected to have design meeting with the director, attend weekly production meetings, attend tech, and strike.
(re)discover theatre will oversee set change over during the run of the show and the designer will only be asked to execute major repairs in the run with advanced notice.
This is a stipend position.
A materials budget will be provided separate from stipend.
Designer will have access to materials in (re)discover theatre’s stock and the assistance (re)discover ensemble as needed. This show has had a workshop performance so we have good resource for hand props.
