Apply to join a network of emerging theatre directors at the Almeida Theatre

The Almeida Theatre is currently looking to meet with emerging theatre directors who would like to be part of a network of directors attached to the theatre.

Those appointed to the network for training theatre directors will have a close relationship with the theatre and an opportunity to potentially be a resident director during a production in the 2016/2017 season.

For each of their forthcoming productions and projects, the director will select an assistant director from the directors network. This director will then become resident director at the Almeida for the length of the rehearsals and show.

There will be a budget to support and enable you to see plays or attend conferences and/or training and to develop ideas for their own project. Further opportunities include working with the theatre’s Participation team, attending workshops and script readings and assisting with artistic strategy.

The Almeida hopes to inspire creativity in the next generation of directors with this network and support exceptional leaders for the future.

Those looking to apply should have directed a play, experience assisting in the direction of a professional production or with professional actors, be flexible, have excellent communication skills, and be full ideas and enthusiasm.

The deadline for application is 12 noon on Tuesday 30 August 2016. Full details, including a person specification and role description, can be downloaded from the Almeida Theatre website.
