Job titleEnter Achilles Tour Director
Job Description

Two world leaders in contemporary dance – Rambert and Sadler’s Wells – are working
together to produce a recreation and major international tour of Enter Achilles conceived and
directed by Lloyd Newson (DV8 Physical Theatre).

The production is being developed throughout 2019 at Rambert, with rehearsals from October,
and will tour throughout the UK and the world from February 2020 – Summer 2021.

This will mark the first ever restaging of Newson’s work and a major undertaking for the
company, engaging new cast and crew to work alongside the world-class artists and staff of the
Rambert ensemble and the newly established Rambert2. The tour will be managed by Sadler’s
Wells touring department, along with support from Rambert.

Lloyd Newson and Hannes Langolf (Creative Associate) will be in attendance during rehearsals
in London and on tour from February 2020 – May 2020. The Tour Director will support Lloyd
Newson during the first leg of the tour and will share the responsibility for maintaining the
artistic integrity of Enter Achilles performances on tour thereafter with the Creative Associate.

The role requires knowledge and appreciation of the work and methods of Lloyd Newson,
extraordinary attention to details and the drive never to compromise the artistic work. The Tour
Director will be an excellent communicator, a positive and creative problem solver and thrive
working under extreme pressure. S/he will require the ability to care for an extraordinary group
of professional dance artists. This role is pivotal to the delivery of the production from its
premiere in February 2020 and subsequent world tour until Summer 2021.
