Seeking Post-show Facilitator
INHERITANCE: a choose-your-adventure experience
Inheritance is a live stage play receiving its world premiere at the Annex Theatre on the unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) nations (March 3 – 15, 2020), produced by Alley Theatre and Touchstone Theatre in association with Vancouver Moving Theatre and community partnership with the Vancouver Aboriginal Friendship Centre ($2 from every ticket will be donated to the Centre). For more information about the play and team members, visit www.inheritanceplay.ca.
After every performance there will be a post-show dialogue and sharing circle with the audience. We are seeking a Post-show Facilitator to lead these discussions and ensure they are as safe, respectful, and meaningful as possible.
Because of the interactive nature of the play, the content of the story may be different each performance. So that means the Post-show Facilitator would attend all performances of the play to gauge audience demographics, voting-habits, and the tone and plot of that particular performance, in order to facilitate the post-show dialogue accordingly.
- professional moderating experience
- comfortable with public speaking and facilitating group conversations
- anti-oppression/anti-racism training is an asset
