Project title: ME YOU US THEM 

Project type: Stage to Film 

 

A Melting Pan Production, Me You Us Them is a remount of 2018’s theatre production Me You Us Them by Terra Nova Productions Artistic Director, Andrea Montgomery.  The play explores real stories of racism, identity and sense of belonging in Northern Ireland, at a most crucial time worldwide amidst the Black Lives Matter movement.

 

The play introduces characters through a series of monologues, then shows lives gradually intersecting and overlapping in surprising ways, to build a picture of life as we don’t usually see it on the Northern Ireland stage. Me You Us Them is an angry, but funny, occasionally shocking play, which ultimately leaves us uplifted and thoughtful.  

 

It is supported by the Arts Councils of England and Northern Ireland and by Belfast City Council.  This is a film of a theatre production, and seeks to inhabit the fascinating hinterland between the two artforms, taking the best of both.

 

You can find out more about the original production at Me You Us Them and about Terra Nova’s intercultural and ethical work at What We Do

We will be in rehearsals for two weeks prior to that for you to come in at some point to see the space. 

 

We would preferably like to work with somebody who is able to bring on board their own crew (sound/lighting) but are still open to hearing from the right person regardless.

 

We have a separate budget for the crew which I’m happy to share with you if/when you need to reach out to them.

We would like to bring on board a multi talented set and costume designer. We would also be open to hearing from a duo team.

A combination of working at home and then getting ideas on their feet in the rehearsal room with a week of play, a second week of solidifying ideas, ready for filming in week 3.  You will be working with two actors, who will multirole 9 parts and creating several spaces such as a cafe, the inside of a bus, a hospital cupboard, a street to name a few. It will take someone with a creative imagination to bring our project alive.
