The Hatchling – Performers Call Out

Posted in Opportunities

The Hatchling is a spectacular large-scale, live event set to be performed in Wakefield as part of the districts Our Year celebration. Centred around the story of an incredible dragon puppet, The Hatchling is a breath taking outdoor theatrical performance created by a world class team of experts in design, kite flying and puppeteering, which will unfold over the August bank holiday weekend (Fri 23rd – Sun 25th Aug 2024). This visit will mark The Hatchling’s third ever outing and its second ever flight, having made its world premiere in Plymouth in 2021.

Experience with large scale puppets is useful but not essential. We welcome applicants from BAME (Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic) backgrounds.

You will have:

  • A love of puppets / or a desire to try something new
  • Willingness to improvise and create responsive performance
  • Willingness to work hard and muck in
  • Excitement about being part of a small but dedicated team
  • An interest in creating and devising new work
  • Enthusiasm for Wakefield and touring
  • Have a sense of humour

Application deadline: 26 April, 5pm
