Redmoon Emerging Artist Internship Fall Session

Redmoon’s mission is to create artistic events that disrupt everyday life and provide opportunities for public engagement, community building, and recognition of the possibility for change. Founded in 1990 to promote a unique brand of Spectacle performance committed to civic well-being, Redmoon creates unique theatrical experiences that galvanize community and celebrates the human imagination. With a style that is equal parts puppetry, pageantry, gadgetry, robust physical performance, and visual art installation, Redmoon’s core competency is its ability to provide an array of cultural events that meet the highest formal artistic standards and the city’s civic interests. Redmoon's highly visual artistic language speaks across social, economic, and generational boundaries, attracting a dynamic audience who enjoys the broad appeal of Redmoon's events, from its high profile collaborations and outdoor Spectacle performances, to its private commission-based events and community-focused Neighborhood Arts Programming. Evaluation of the past year has shown that Redmoon’s audience has expanded to include a strong family presence while reaching an annual audience attendance in 2010 of approximately 27,000 people from across Chicago. Redmoon’s intensive Emerging Artist Internship program provides training in spectacle art techniques. Emerging artists of all backgrounds experience an in-depth exploration of Redmoon’s art-making practices from design and construction to workshop and performance. Interns support the construction of original art objects and installation materials used in Redmoon events, while developing enduring skills and learning a philosophy of collaborative creativity.

This internship will focus on prop and set construction for The Tempest, a collaboration between Redmoon and Chicago Shakespeare Theater that opens January 2012. Skills required: competence with power tools and saws, basic carpentry skills, some woodcarving. This is an unpaid opportunity
