City of the Unexpected Associate Director Opportunity

Wales Millennium Centre and National Theatre Wales are looking to recruit an Associate Director to work as part of the creative team, led by Nigel Jamieson, for City of the Unexpected, to be staged in Cardiff City Centre, 17th & 18th September 2016.

This September, Cardiff will celebrate the centenary of one of its most well-known sons, Roald Dahl, with an extraordinary weekend-long event, showcasing both Dahl’s distinctive voice and the jewels of the city’s buildings, parks and its people.

Eye-popping visual spectacles will turn heads and madcap events will defy the laws of physics in some of the city’s most iconic locations, including Cardiff Castle and the National Museum. A cast of thousands, from parkour artists to farmers, from pigeon fanciers to puppeteers, will give heart-stopping performances both intimate and epic in Victorian shopping arcades, from lampposts and inside cafés.

We are keen to hear from director’s who

-        Have experience of mass participation work

-        Have experience in street theatre and / or circus presentations

-        Can work as part of a collaborative process

-        Have experience with participants of all ages

-        Have experience of both professional and community participants

-        Have an interest in Dahl’s work

-        Be available odd dates between April and August and then exclusively between 22nd August to 18th September 2016

-        Ideally be based in South Wales

We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all backgrounds

Fee – to be discussed on appointment
