Lord of the Flies

The Marlowe Theatre is looking to appoint two Ambassadors to assist in the delivery of Lord of the Flies, the latest production from Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures.

Matthew Bourne is one of the UK’s leading dance theatre creators, his most famous production being the ground-breaking all male version of Swan Lake.

Lord of the Flies will include both New Adventures professional dancers and young men from the local area. We are looking for passionate early career dancers/choreographers who can inspire boys and young men to participate in dance, whatever their level of experience or background, to take part in activity for Lord of the Flies in the lead up to the production and potentially beyond.

This is an ideal opportunity for anyone between the ages of 18 and 24, to work with the UK’s leading dance theatre company, develop a strong relationship with The Marlowe Theatre and to create a network of contacts that can offer potential employment or training pathways beyond this project.

The Marlowe Theatre reopened in October 2011.  Since then, the theatre has welcomed over 700,000 customers to performances by some of the country’s most important touring companies, ranging from Glyndebourne Opera and the National Theatre to major West End productions.  We are also very proud to be working with the National Theatre on their Connections programme for young people and to be part of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Learning and Performance Network for schools.

Deadline: Monday 20 January 2014, 9am

This is a part-time, paid opportunity. To apply please send a CV and cover letter to Daniel Lipman, The Marlowe Theatre, The Friars, Canterbury, Kent, CT1 2AS or email Daniel.Lipman@marlowetheatre.com.

Interviews will take place on Friday 24 January. You will be expected to prepare a 20 minute workshop on the theme of “Tribal” for 12-15 dancers of varying experience.
