Common Wealth are looking for an extraordinary Production Manager to join them in making Radical Acts.
Radical Acts is a response to the centenary of some women getting the vote in 1918. At the heart of the piece is the question ‘what radical action do women and girls need to make today?’ Radical Acts will be a series of interventions created by women in public space and culminate in a site-specific, immersive performance in Bradford in September 2018.
We are looking for a Production Manager to be responsible for the technical delivery of Radical Acts happening in Bradford across summer and September 2018. The Production Manager will work collaboratively with Common Wealth’s Artistic Directors & Producer to realise the potential of staging the acts, rehearsals and the show, supporting logistics and delivery. The Production Manager will hold responsibility for managing the team, scheduling, resourcing materials and liaising with venues.
