PAID ASSISTANT DIRECTOR / PRODUCTION ASSISTANT
Vagina Cake by Laura Harper
Produced by HER Productions & Girl Gang MCR
With thanks to funding from Arts Council England
We are seeking an early career director to join the upcoming R&D of ‘Vagina Cake’ by Laura Harper. Our team is made up of women and therefore we would like to recruit a woman or young woman* for this role. We are aware that women who experience racism are currently underrepresented in Manchester's independent theatre directing ecology and therefore would like to recruit accordingly.
We will be part-time rehearsing over April & May (exact dates made available to applicants).
We are looking for an early-career director / creative (less than 3 years experience) to join the process, who is interested in learning and being a part of a creative space. This is an R&D process, focused exclusively on script development and working with our creative team. We do not require a certain amount of experience or credits and the Assistant Director would not be required to be present at every session. We would like to stress this is a development opportunity.
We are exclusively seeking applications who are:
- Experience racism
- Early career
for this position, please only apply if this is how you identify.
Please note this process is MANCHESTER BASED and will be conducted in-person in adherence with Covid-19 guidelines and safety measures.
Please send an expression of interest and bit about yourself to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note we use the word "woman" inclusively to include trans women and also welcome non-binary and gender non conforming people who would be comfortable in this setting to this process which focus's on women's experiences.
