Earth will be the first of a new trilogy of plays Earth, Wind & Fire that will be produced over the next 3 years.  It is hoped that the theme of Earth has the power to involve young artists from a variety of cultural backgrounds to work with our experienced team of WAYTCo performers.

We are seeking an experienced director who can develop a script with young theatre artists, direct the production for Nov/December 2011 and mentor several young assistant directors.  Directors can register their interest with a brief response (one to two pages) outlining their work experience, with regard to the following criteria…

  • Directing experience
  • Experience in creating new works
  • Experience with young artists (13 -25)
  • Experience with artists from a variety of cultures
  • Writing/ dramaturgy experience.

It is not necessary to have experience in all of the above areas.

Please also attach a short biog or cv.

We will subsequently invite a number of applicants to a briefing session.

This is a part time position.  The schedule can be adjusted to suit the working requirements of the right candidate.  There will a professional fee for services provided.
