Byzantine Choral Project Seeks Producer

Byzantine Choral Project
New York, NY 10014

Job Details


Byzantine Choral Project, a dynamic collaboration between playwright Helen Banner, composer Grace Oberhofer, and director Colette Robert, is seeking a Producer to join our creative team during our 2018-2020 Archive Residency to develop ICONS/IDOLS at the New Ohio/IRT. The producer will facilitate the creative management of a workshop production in 2019’s Ice Factory Festival, as well as a world premiere at the New Ohio in 2020.

ICONS/IDOLS is a tetralogy of choral plays for over a dozen women+ singers. Mixing music, movement and text, the four plays recover the secret history of Byzantine Empresses Irene, Maria, and Euphrosyne as they ascend in a society with deep animosity towards female rule. Deeply committed to religious icons, these powerful empresses sacrifice personal relationships in an attempt to gain enough power to re-introduce them into an empire that fiercely and violently opposes iconography. ICONS/IDOLS showcases the radical power of strong, diverse women+ singing on stage and explores the importance of imagery, representation and iconoclasm in classical and contemporary life.

Responsibilities include: fundraising, marketing strategies, pre-production planning and hiring, casting, active production oversight, and the coordination of two developmental workshops.

The ideal candidate has strong leadership skills, creative instincts, and the confidence and ability to guide a nascent theatre collective.

Pay: Stipend
