Company

Freelance Dance Practitioners required.

We are recruiting two freelance dance practitioners to work with the newly formed Company dance company.

Company is initially working with Sense, AgeUK and Life-Act  to develop the company identity and choreographic sensibility through the creation of new work.  We are looking for dance practitioners who are experienced in, or excited to start, working with older people and adults with learning and/or physical disabilities.

Dance style and training is completely open but we are looking for practitioners who can facilitate a style and choreographic language to emerge from the company members.

Applicants must be confident in capturing movement sequences creatively using digital tech.

Initially the hourly sessions will be once or twice a week for six months at a fee of £50 per hour.

If you are interested please send your CV and a statement of interest to matt@rotherhamroar.org

Deadline for statement of interest:  17th September

Informal interviews: 21st September

Project starts: Week beginning 18th October

Life Act

We are recruiting for a drama practitioner!
Want to work with an extraordinary, joyful group of people with learning difficulties,
disability or autism who explore disability issues from their own lives through theatre?
Rotherham Open Arts Renaissance is looking for a skilled drama practitioner to work with
Life Act, our performing company of adults with learning and/or physical disabilities.
Life Act has established a reputation over the last twelve years for producing often hard
hitting and entertaining pieces which explore the world of disability and people’s attitudes, and are/has performed in schools, community groups and public audiences. We
incorporate music and dance into performances. Performances are devised collectively by the group, user-led and offer leadership development to those involved. The group has a strong identity and shared ethos of mutual support and aspirational creative endeavour.
Applicants will ideally have some experience of working with those with a disability in such a context and a firm commitment to the social model. We regard everyone in our group as equal adults in the process, so practitioners must be able to work democratically with, rather than for, the group. We are becoming increasingly a disability led organisation. The commitment would be for Tuesday mornings on a freelance basis. An expectation is that the practitioner would be committed to attending weekly sessions, although there is some flexibility if occasional dates need to be taken off.
Fee: £100 a session.
Life Act is supported by the National Lottery Community Fund
