1. THE MOONWATCHER (3 posts)
Horse + Bamboo are currently developing a new touring show. The Moonwatcher is a new Horse + Bamboo production, written and devised by poet Shamshad Khan and director Bob Frith. It’s an hour-long show integrating poetry and visual performance, with music composed and recorded by Arun Ghosh.
The Moonwatcher is the story of Rahmi, who leaves Pakistan as a young woman to meet her husband who has settled to work in Lancashire. The unfolding narrative is told by Rahmi’s daughter Azrah.
The Moonwatcher shows an intimate but challenging relationship between mother and daughter, while portraying the common journey of a British South Asian family in a wider context. The subject matter is mainly derived from the Different Moons project developed by Bob and Shamshad over the past five years. Part of this involved interviews with local first generation immigrants from South Asia, which have formed the basis of the storyline. The show will be co-directed by Shamshad and Bob.
We are looking for two South Asian women performers and a technical director. Download details below.

Closing date is 22nd July 2017.
