JMK Directors’ Group: Reading Rep, Wilshire Creative and Nuffield Theatres Southampton
Call out for directors and theatre-makers in the Reading Area
We are interested in hearing from directors and theatre-makers based in the Reading area who are looking to explore and develop their own practice through workshops, events and networking opportunities.
As part of a relaunch of its Regional Programme, the JMK is setting up a Directors’ Group at Reading Rep which will share activities with the Directors’ Groups already running at Nuffield Theatres Southampton and Wiltshire Creative.
The JMK Regional Programme provides opportunities for directors and theatre-makers to develop their skill set and knowledge, no matter what level of experience they are at!
You may be interested in a career in theatre directing, have started developing your own work or consider yourself an established theatre-maker, the JMK Regional Programme will provide a range of workshops, residences and networking opportunities for you to develop your own practice and meet other locally based directors.
The events organised by the JMK Regional Programme, will be a fun and informal way for you to explore new methods of working with established theatre professionals, as well as to socialise with other directors.
Being a theatre-maker or director can sometimes feel like a solitary experience and the group looks to bring people together to strengthen local networks and offer opportunities for further development.
There is no level of experience necessary to join the group, you simply need to have an interest in directing.
A launch event for the upcoming programme will be taking place on Saturday 1st September at Reading Rep from 3-5pm. This will be an opportunity for you to hear more about the programme, as well as meet director Nik Partridge, the JMK Director Practitioner for the Reading, Wiltshire and Southampton area, who co-ordinates the programme.
If you have any questions or you would like to register your interest and book a place for the launch event, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
