Opportunities

Join our team: General Manager

CPT is recruiting for a proactive and enthusiastic General Manager to join the team. You will be responsible for year-round programme delivery, marketing, technical and operations and will work with the Executive and Artistic Directors to deliver CPT’s mission to support early-career artists making unconventional theatre. You will be joining a small, hard-working team at an exciting time for the organisation and we’re looking for a self-starter, a team player, and someone with a sense of humour.

We are particularly keen to receive applications from people from BAME backgrounds, in recognition of the fact these groups are currently underrepresented in the sector and can guarantee an interview for all those who demonstrate how they meet the ‘essential’ criteria.

Call for submissions: seed commission for artists from BAME backgrounds

Camden People’s Theatre offers six seed commissions annually to artists from BAME backgrounds, to support the development of innovative new theatre projects. Three of these commissions will be offered for Autumn 2017: successful candidates will receive £750, one week’s rehearsal space, and the opportunity to present a ‘scratch’ performance (up to 25 minutes long) as part of our artistic programme (25-26 November). These commissions are being offered specifically to artists from BAME backgrounds in recognition of the fact these artists are currently underrepresented in contemporary theatre. These seed commissions are generously supported by Paul Hamlyn Foundation.

Due to the volume of applications we receive, we’re unable to notify or give feedback on unsuccessful applicants. If your application is successful, you’ll hear from us within six weeks.

Call for submissions: Calm Down, Dear festival of feminism 2018

In January 2018, Camden People’s Theatre stages its fifth Calm Down, Dear festival of feminism. This unique three-week celebration of new feminist performance – staged by some of the UK’s most exciting artists – has become a highlight of the independent theatre calendar.

What we’re looking for:

  • New work exploring the theme of feminism
  • Unconventional and innovative work
  • Devised, self-made and solo work
  • Off-site work
  • Interactive work
  • Live art / cross-disciplinary work

Please bear in mind, we are unlikely to consider ‘plays’ as traditionally understood, ‘new writing’, formally conventional work, straight monologues, or any work made according to the usual writer-director-actor hierarchies. We can’t accept scripts as part of your application.
