Coventry City of Culture 2021: Call-out for Coventry or Warwickshire based Writer/Dramaturg

Call-out to commission a writer/dramaturg for Theatre of Wandering, a new theatre performance coming to Coventry as part of the UK City of Culture programme.

A Coventry UK City of Culture 2021 and Entelechy Arts co-production, in association with OiBokkeShi

In a new production co-created and inspired by Coventry residents, this walk-about theatrical experience through the east of the city blurs the boundaries between fiction and reality.

Theatre Company OiBokkeShi (Okayama, Japan) team up with Entelechy Arts in this performance about the different ways in which people experience and live with dementia, made in partnership with local Coventry care homes, schools, shopkeepers and residents.

The audience is playfully invited to follow one man’s journey through a high street as he wanders, uncovering and sharing the hidden stories about one of our society’s greatest challenges. Inspired by an original production by OiBokkeShi.

The Dramaturg/Writer will work alongside the co-Directors to listen to diverse voices of Coventry citizens regarding care and dementia, absorb their stories and experiences and support the co-Directors with the structure of the final performance.

The fee for this work will be up to £8,000 (including VAT where applicable) based on
40 days at £200 per day.
