Executive Director Position

Shobana Jeyasingh Dance produces work for traditional theatres as well as site-specific spaces. The company has recently taken up the invitation to become an Associate Company at the Southbank Centre.

We strive to place dance in the centre of the dialogue of ideas. In particular we explore arenas such as the postcolonial experience, science and the changing world of globalisation where the margins and the centre are involved in ever changing configurations.

It is an exciting time for the company and we are now recruiting for the role of Executive Director: a fleet of foot collaborator able to hold the ends of all the pieces of string that deliver excellent productions, feasible tours, strong partnerships, fiscal security and long term success: an Executive Director who thrives by working in close and dynamic proximity with the creative process.

Our base in Somerset House means we are at the heart of a major cultural hub and we have a strong core team eager to drive and deliver the programme with the leadership and guidance of our new Executive Director. As we approach our 30th anniversary we hope that you are as enthusiastic about our future as we are.
