Vice Versa: Call Out For Collaborators with Dorcas Sebuyange

Dorcas Sebuyange received funding in the first round of Slate commissions to develop her Vice Versa; an album that politically explores realms of consciousness. Having been selected for a MAKE Comission in the final round of Slate Commissioing, Dorcas will use the additional grant to tour a theatrical gig sharing music and poetry from Vice Versa using animation and motion graphics, filmography, poetry, visual art and movement.

Call Out for: A Contemporary Composer

Dorcas is looking for a Contemporary Composer to join the artistic team for a new immersive, audio-visual performance piece.

This project will further the development of Dorcas Seb’s show Vice Versa, a piece that is rooted from the artist's album tracks and was presented in the style of gig-theatre in its last R&D phase.

The next phase looks to collaborate with a Contemporary Composer who is able to support live instrumentals. The style of the music is very eclectic, ranging from Electronic Synths, Pop, RnB and there are also elements of Spoken Word.

This collaborative process will involve replicating the sounds from the album but it is also open to recreate instrumentals for this live project.

Call Out for: Digital Story Teller/Visual Artist

Dorcas is also looking for for an innovative and collaborative digital artist / light designer to join the artistic team.

This project will further the development of Dorcas Seb’s show Vice Versa, a piece that was presented in the style of gig-theatre in its last R&D phase where theatre members were immersed in a world of animation driven by the solo musician, Dorcas Seb. The next phase looks to collaborate with a visual artist who is able to support and lift the piece from gig-theatre to performance art; working with live music, and visuals.

The visual design should emulate the themes and moods of each musical track which ranges from psychedelic euphoria, rage and anger and love and peace.

Closing date for both roles: Sun 8 Dec
