Experience Opportunity

CATALYST - Trainee Assistant Lighting Designer

We believe that representation matters; diversity of identity, of perspective, of lived experience enriches our work and our lives. Historically, at the Donmar and in the wider industry, there has been a lack of representation of people of the global majority, so we seek to address this in terms of our workforce.

We are looking for trainee assistants to work with members of our creative team on our upcoming production of THE BAND’S VISIT. We are looking for a lighting designer who has experience of creating your own work for small-scale events or fringe productions OR recently completed a lighting course (graduating since summer 2020) OR an equivalent training experience.

You will have a desire to pursue a career as a lighting designer and will be of the global majority/ a background underrepresented at the Donmar and in the wider theatre industry. We define this as artists who experience barriers and inequality due to ethnicity, gender socio-economic background and/ or as being D/deaf or disabled artists. Please be sure to include any access requirements in your application.

Application deadline: Midday on Monday 6 June 2022
