ABOUT THE SHOW
KING is a largescale dance-theatre work featuring nine dancers plus a live, on-stage singer. It is an interrogation of masculinity, homosexuality and homophobia and the innate power dynamics that exist within patriarchal structures. Created by Shaun Parker and composer Ivo Dimchev (who performs in the show), KINGwas set for a world-tour in 2020 before the Covid-19 pandemic closed the borders. The show will now re-premiere with a six show season at the Seymour Centre as part of Sydney WorldPride in February 2023, before heading to Europe for an extensive tour in June/July next year.
We’re looking for an experienced Stage Manager to work with the company for the Sydney WorldPride season. The Stage Manager will spend a week in the rehearsal studio with Shaun, Ivo, the Production Manager, the cast and the designers, to learn the show before assisting in the delivery at Sydney WorldPride. The Stage Manager’s direct manager will be the Production Manager.
