Punchdrunk is seeking organised and collaborative Costume Resetters for the show run of The Burnt City. The Costume Resetters will be instrumental in ensuring that performers are appropriately dressed and that costumes are reset and ready for the next performance. They will work closely with the Performing Company, Stage Management and Wardrobe department to help maintain the creative vision for the show and raise any general issues, including noting repairs that may need to be made to costumes.
While this role does not require any sewing knowledge, it is a practical and physically demanding role that requires walking and standing for long periods of time and the ability to help performers in and out of costumes. Costume Resetters will have good attention to detail and they will be organised and methodical in how they reset costumes. Importantly, the ideal candidate will have strong interpersonal skills and will be sensitive to the needs of the performers. The successful candidates will have strong teamwork skills, be able to communicate with a range of people and will be able to follow specific instructions, with the ability to use their own initiative when needed.
Please note: this role is only open to applicants aged 18 years and over due to the content within the show, in line with our safeguarding policy.
Deadline: Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Shortlisted candidates will be notified in due course.
