JMK & HOME Assistant Director Bursary

The JMK Trust in partnership with HOME is offering an Assistant Director Bursary to a participant of the JMK Directors’ Group. The bursary is an arts scholarship, funded by the Leverhulme Trust that will provide a learning and training opportunity for a talented emerging director, based in the North West of England area who has demonstrated a commitment to directing and a passion for theatre making. The recipient will become a Leverhulme Arts Scholar.

We are looking for an Assistant Director to assist on Future Bodies a HOME and Unlimited Theatre Co-production in collaboration with RashDash.

This exciting and bold new production brings together two of the UK’s most thoughtful, inspiring and consistently brilliant theatre companies to imagine the implications of real world, leading edge developments in human enhancement technologies. Working with leading scientists and researchers in the fields of brain implants, smart drugs, and artificial intelligence, Unlimited and RashDash smash together science fact and fiction in a kaleidoscopic montage of words, music and movement.

Experience of working with movement and with disabled and non-disabled performers will be beneficial, but not essential. Given the subject matter of the play and the mix of disabled and non-disabled performers in the cast, we are particularly keen to receive applications from people who identify as disabled themselves.

Want to apply? Download the job pack and send your CV and covering letter to by Mon 18 June.

If you have any questions please contact

Deadline for applications: Send your CV and covering letter by midnight on Mon 18 June.

Interviews will take place: Wed 27 June 2018 at HOME.
