We are searching for a skilled, self-motivated Set & Costume Designer to join our production team for our new play ‘The Possibility of Colour’.
The play explores themes around mental health, voice hearing, synaesthesia, neurodiversity, forced treatment, AI in healthcare, private healthcare and much more.
It has been written with input at every stage from mental health professionals, academics, student practitioners and people with lived experience of the themes explored in the play.
This will be an exciting challenge for the right artist, as the play will offer an immersive insight into the experience of voice hearing and synaesthesia, using recorded voices, music and synchronised animated projections.
As part of this process, the creative team will work collaboratively and have the unique opportunity to consult with Kaitlyn Hova, a synaesthete, musician and neuroscientist who ‘sees music’ as colour.

We are looking for a set designer who can work innovatively, quickly, collaboratively and efficiently to create a stripped back, simple but striking set that allows the mixture of still and animated projections to create the majority of the ‘world’ that the characters inhibit.
They will also need to create an architectural model of a house, which is a key element of the play.
