Musician needed for dance theatre piece

Love in Idleness is a promenade performance which takes place in a garden. Combining dance, theatre and music, it is directed by dance artist Rachel Dean and loosely based around the themes of A Midsummer Night’s Dream; transformation, magic, mischief and love. A tour of five Yorkshire gardens is confirmed for this Summer, funded by Grants for the Arts and produced by Yorkshire Dance.

The two musicians are an integral part  of the piece and play an important role in leading the audience. Looking for a musician with:

– Very strong skills in improvisation
– An instrument(s) which is portable and does not require amplification
– An instrument(s) to combine with clarinet or bass clarinet
– The enthusiasm and flexibility needed for the unpredictability/interaction/weather that comes with outdoor work
-The skills and outlook needed to work as part of an ensemble of musicians, dancers and actor.
– Ideally experience in working with dancers/theatre
