Work with us: Producer

Odd Eyes Theatre is looking for a Producer to work closely with Artistic Director Emilia Teglia to be the strategic lead for our new youth and community cohesion programme #Haters.

About the Project

This new creative programme follows two successful tours of #Haters, a play taking inspiration from a real incident involving a knife crime and a tweet that became the case in point for the repercussion of gentrification in urban communities. The play gave a fair representation of all parties involved in the incident, aiming to generate meaningful conversations amongst residents from different social backgrounds.  The programme will continue to generate dialogue by empowering young people living in areas affected by urban regeneration with tools to articulate their voice through spoken word and film.  Follow this link to read all about #Haters
