As part of Eastern Angles commitment to developing new and emerging talent, EA are on the hunt for an enthusiastic, hardworking and talented director interested in joining Eastern Angles for a year in 2015 on a BBC Performing Arts Fellowship.

We’re really excited both about our programme for 2015 and the opportunity this Fellowship will provide for the right person. The PAF Fellowship scheme aims to support individuals through the early stages of their performing arts career, helping them to establish themselves in the professional world through bespoke placements within existing organisations.

Here at Eastern Angles we are interested in hearing from potential fellows whose passions and interests match are own (around arts and heritage, around a sense of place, around a passion for East Anglia and an enthusiasm for new writing). So whilst your primary focus might be as a director, you might also have specific additional experience as writer, a designer, digital artist/writer, musician or education practitioner etc.

The successful candidate will get the opportunity to get their hands dirty on a huge range of work including
Oysters – a new play for our spring 2015 community tour in partnership with The Pioneer Sailing Trust.
– Planned new play workshops / research and development periods.
Once Upon A Lifetime – our reminiscence project
– The Peterborough Mystery Play – exploration of community mystery plays with Peterborough Cathedral.
– a Christmas Show with Shanty Theatre.
– Being involved in research and development for two major projects, The Ipswich Mysteries and 8th in the East, both funded by Heritage Lottery and involving community performance.

They will also get the opportunity to develop their own work, with the support of the Eastern Angles team, have the support of an external mentor and spend time getting to know the workings of a busy theatre company like Eastern Angles.

The fellowship will be based in Ipswich, but with regular visits to Peterborough and touring venues. The position is offered subject to a successful funding bid to the BBC.
