MOVEMENT DIRECTOR – we need to talk….
Just Jones & is a theatre company touring nationally with our base in South East London. Our shows are built with, by and for our audiences which makes them powerful, immediate, universal, poetic, a bit bonkers, very ambitious, totally collaborative. We create interactive shows about the questions that won’t leave us alone – the big stuff of the 21st century. In playful, provocative ways, we ask our audiences to help us make the show from idea to performance. We’re not experts on climate change, social justice or how to run the world. We are fascinated by what’s going on and we want to share our excitement, confusion and experiences. As we make our shows, we’re always learning about theatre-making, the theme we’re exploring and about your town, city or village.We tour because we believe that theatre is part of a conversation. Every performance in every town adds to the performance and the conversation. Along the way, we invite artists and the public to meet, swap experience and make stuff in workshops, residencies and projects. Currently we’re looking for a Movement Director interested in inclusive practice. Continue reading “Can you get us all moving? Movement Directors only need apply”
