LINK IN MY BIO are looking to collaborate with a composer:

– comfortable with working in an open and fluid creative environment

– excited about engaging with young people

– experience composing, but not necessarily in opera

– a knowledge and appreciation of musical genres such as grime, drill, drum ‘n’ bass and world music

– comfortable with experimental forms, particularly with the development and incorporation of technology in theatre

– experience of participatory work is desirable, but not essential

LINK IN MY BIO, a new opera-in-development, centres around a diverse group of young people and what happens when their bus is hijacked by the supporters of an Alt-Right personality after he has been attacked by an unknown assailant/s.  Conceived by librettist Jennifer Farmer and director Seta White, LINK IN MY BIO is a ‘choose your own adventure’ opera exploring what it is to be a young person in today’s Britain, with the continued growth of the far-right and widespread justification of racism and xenophobia.

Our next stage of development is to create 10-15 minutes of material for an invited industry sharing at Arcola Theatre in April 2020 for potential partner venues and co-producer/s. We are looking for a musician/composer.

If interested, please respond by 5pm on 17 February 2020 with your expression of interest, providing a CV and samples of work to Seta and Jennifer at notusopera1@gmail.com.

A fee is provided as part of a seed commission.
