The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama is seeking to appoint an innovative theatre practitioner and educator to the role of Lecturer in Performance, principally based on the Performance Arts course of the Contemporary Performance Practice (CPP) programme. You will work with an established team across specialist areas of Performance Arts, Applied Theatre and Writing for Performance and will have interest and skill in experimental performance practice as it manifests in theatre, performance and art spaces. With shared responsibility for maintenance and enhancement of the curriculum, you will help ensure the ongoing currency of CPP and its fit in the changing environment of the twenty-first century culture industries.
The ideal candidate will possess knowledge of the specialist area and an advanced sense of the processes involved in theatre production while demonstrating a clear understanding of how traditional roles are changing in this context. In alignment with best industry and academic standards of practice, as Lecturer in Performance you will contribute to the maintenance of the quality of provision, working with colleagues across the School, particularly the courses of the BA Theatre Practice degree. You will also be an innovative researcher/practitioner and student-focussed teacher, open to new ideas and pedagogic development. In addition, you will bring a specialist knowledge of, and practical skill in, practices related to one of the specialist areas of the Performance Arts course with an aptitude to manage, organise, administer and curate student projects.
