Saw this on Playbill . . . Sleep No More
« on: May 24, 2014, 05:34 pm »

Sleep No More is a site specific immersive theater production in Chelsea, New York City, created by the internationally acclaimed British theater company Punchdrunk. It is based on Shakespeare’s tragedy Macbeth and is set in 1930s Scotland. Since 2000, Punchdrunk has pioneered a game changing form of immersive theater in which roaming audiences experience epic storytelling inside sensory theatrical worlds. Blending classic texts, physical performance, award-winning design installation and unexpected sites, the company's infectious format rejects the passive obedience usually expected of audiences. Lines between space, performer and spectator are constantly shifting. Audiences are invited to rediscover the childlike excitement and anticipation of exploring the unknown and experience a real sense of adventure. Free to encounter the installed environment in an individual imaginative journey, the choice of of what to watch and where to go is theirs alone.

Full time stage managers work eight shows per week, including double shows on Fridays and Saturdays.
Stage Managers are responsible for daily pre-show and post-show tasks, including upkeep of paperwork, props handling, and liaising with members of the crew, stage management team and performers. During the show, they run show tracks, which place them in specific scenes to supervise and ensure safety of both the performers and the audience. Running the show involves some interaction with the audience, namely, guiding patrons out of the way of performers, and making sure patrons are abiding by the rules of the performance. When not in specific scenes, stage managers will be expected to answer emergency calls and trouble shoot technical/performer issues within the show.

This is a paid position. To apply for a stage management position, please submit a cover letter, a resume and two professional references. Please include "SNM Stage Management Position" in the subject line of the email.
