Stage Lighting Tech Fellowship for Womxn and People of African Descent

ABOUT THE FELLOWSHIP
The Stage Lighting Tech Fellow is mentored and trained by Dance Mission Theater's in-house Technical Director, Harry Rubeck in introductory and intermediate basics of stage lighting production, with an opportunity for fieldwork working the load-in, run, and strike for Afro Urban Society’s production, 'Bakanal de Afrique: What Had Happened Was...', November 16-17, 2018 at Dance Mission Theater. The Stage Lighting Tech Fellowship has emerged from years of conversations between Black Choreographers Festival, Dance Mission, and Afro Urban Society about what would better our field. Our collaborating team is passionate about expanding the opportunities for womxn and people of color in stage production, and is committed to creating accessible, professional, and relevant skill sets that live up to our high standards of production. This fellowship is appropriate for people interested in the technical aspects of being on a production crew and specifically lighting design.

WHO IT'S FOR
The fellowship is open to all people of African descent. Priority will be given to Black womxn-identified and gender non-binary peoples.  The ideal Stage Lighting Tech Fellow is interested in/curious about a career in Lighting Design, and/or working in the field as a Stage Manager or Sound Technician, and/or in augmenting their own artistic practice with knowledge about the technical side of live performance. We are looking for fellows that are able to commit to the entire 3 months, and have strong work ethic, curiosity, willingness to learn, are efficient and flexible and able to work well with others in a fast-paced environment, have strong communication skills; and demonstrate organization, attention to detail, problem-solving, and time-management skills. The fellow must be able to climb a ladder up to 16 ft and be able and willing to carry equipment (lights, cable etc) up to 25 lbs. We will only be accepting a limited number of fellows so that class sizes remain small.
