Experienced Projection Designer needed for Saving the World: A Science Fiction Tap Dance Opera.

Due to a scheduling conflict with previous designer, need to hire and get someone up to speed ASAP.

Scope: Creating Projections for world premiere show from the award-winning tap dance company Chicago Tap Theatre. Show is approximately 1 hour and ten minutes without intermission.
