Assistant Director

Deadline: 27 May 2024

Punchdrunk is embarking on an exciting journey in the initial Development Phase of a ground-breaking project. We’re on the lookout for an enthusiastic and dedicated Assistant Director to join us in shaping the creative vision for this endeavour. This role offers the opportunity to delve into Punchdrunk’s innovative creative processes as we conceive an immersive live experience based on an existing IP.

In this pivotal moment of Punchdrunk’s evolution, we’re not only crafting boundary-pushing immersive experiences but also seeking new partnerships and avenues for our established shows on a global scale. As we explore new horizons, we need someone with a keen eye for innovation and a passion for pushing the boundaries of traditional theatre.

The ideal candidate for the Assistant Director position is someone who is at an early stage in their career, eager to expand their networks, and gain invaluable experience in the immersive field. We encourage applicants with a background in directing, particularly in non-traditional forms, new technology and gaming, to join us in this exciting venture.

This role will be instrumental in supporting the project team to bring our creative vision to life. While not a hands-on directing position, it offers a unique opportunity to contribute to the development of ideas and concepts for our immersive experiences. If you’re ready to be part of a dynamic team at the forefront of immersive storytelling, we want to hear from you.
