Taking Flight Theatre Mentoring project

Taking flight -Do you identify as D/deaf or disabled? Do you identify as female? Are you aged 16+?

 

 

Taking Flight Theatre- an inclusive theatre company based in Cardiff- are seeking people who fit the above description to be part of our next all female touring theatre project. We’re looking for people who have an interest in exploring a career in the theatre in one of the following capacities: Director, Lighting Designer, Composer, Producer, Dramaturg (working on text), Set/ Costume Designer, Arts Marketing and Stage Management.

If you live in Wales and you’d like to be considered for this opportunity, please get in touch with Beth on 07785 947823 or [email protected] 

We welcome applications from females across Wales and can cover travel/ expenses to participate in this project. The project rehearses in Cardiff and Newport (Chapter and Riverfront) and then tours across Wales. Each participant will be assigned to shadow a creative professional woman working on the tour of Kaite O’Reilly’s acclaimed play Peeling.

Once participants have been selected and matched, a schedule of time/ location commitment will be worked out to suit participants- however much time you can/ would like to commit over the next 12 months- starting at a convenient time. You don’t have to have any experience to apply for this, just an interest in the theatre.  Please email or phone as soon as possible and be prepared to communicate why you would like to be part of this, plus to tell us a bit about yourself! Participants access requirements will be met for the duration of this project.
