Queer/Trans Theatre Company Seeks Intimacy Coordinator/Fight Choreographer For Adaptation Of Huck Finn

Sacred Circle Theatre Company
Brooklyn, NY

Job Details


Sacred Circle Theatre Company, the queer/trans/feminist theatre company based in Bushwick, Brooklyn seeks an intimacy coordinator/fight choreographer for our 2020 mainstage Stumpwater by Scout Backus.  

Sacred Circle’s work subverts theatrical practice by engaging with artists across spectrums of identity, deconstructing traditional power structures, and centering the body in all that we do. You can find us on Facebook and Instagram @sacredcircletheatre.

Stumpwater by Scout Backus is our 2020 mainstage production. This new work examines the characters of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn as queer/trans archetypes. Through intimate explorations of their relationships, the denizens of Mark Twain’s world take on contemporary complication as gender, sexuality, race, and class refract against each character’s search for their own heaven on earth.

This intimacy coordinator/fight choreographer would be engaged in helping establish group practices around the issues of gender, sexuality, and race as well as choreographing moments of sexual contact and hand-to-hand combat. Our ideal candidate would have a background in movement, preferably with experience in devised work, new work, and/or African diasporic dance. 

Artists of color, especially Black artists, will be given preference. Candidates of all experience levels and backgrounds encouraged to apply. 

Performances of Stumpwater will be May 28-30 and June 4-6 at the Parish Hall in St Paul’s Lutheran Church at 334 South 5th St in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY. Rehearsals begin in March. A stipend will be provided for the intimacy coordinator/fight choreographer.

Interested candidates should send resume and/or cover letter detailing experience and interest to [email protected]

Please also email with any questions about the company or project! 

We look forward to hearing from you!
