Assistant Director Required for NTW TEAM Performance Party, Pembrokeshire!

NTW TEAM is marking the end of the first year of our four-year programme by holding TEAM Performance Parties in Pembrokeshire and Wrexham, with the first taking place in Haverfordwest this November. 

What is a Performance Party? It is a mix between a performance, a conversation and a party!

The purpose? To get a better idea of what is important to the people of Pembrokeshire, to let you know a bit more about NTW and TEAM and for us find out what you would like from your National Theatre as we continue our journey to creating a show together over the next few years.

Join us for the chance to have your say and to be a part of the decision-making process right from the start.  Catherine Paskell will work closely with the community to create something fun and interactive, inspired by TEAM in Pembrokeshire and we need you to get involved! 

We are looking for an Assistant Director to assist the Director, Catherine Paskell, on the development of short performances, devised to encourage conversations with audience members during the event.  The final production will be a co-creation involving a range of arts practitioners including poets, musician, writers and actors, amongst others.
