Job Description

Tiata fahodzi (“Tee∙ah∙tah fa∙hoon∙zi”) is the UK’s leading British-African contemporary theatre company, led by newly appointed Artistic Director/CEO, playwright/director Chinonyerem Odimba.

Tiata fahodzi is an engine room for so many of the conversations that are currently being had about British African heritage identity, how to make the industry inside and out a more dynamic and inclusive place for everyone.  At tiata fahodzi, we make social change the sole driving force behind what we do. 

The company produces theatre that is fearless for a Britain of today; rich with languages, races, cultures and identities: theatre that looks around and looks forward, with a mission to tell contemporary stories in modern and innovative ways.

The company is at an exciting point in its history as it heads to its 25th anniversary, and we hope we can build on and shine a light on the ways in which it has contributed so much already to the British theatre landscape.

Just like all otther well-run organisations, Tiata fahodzi recognises that it needs a strong and engaged Board of trustees to support the CEO and staff, and design effective strategies that will safeguad the company so it can delight many more audiences for years to come.

Do you have the front-row skills and experience that could offer something here? Or perhaps you're still waiting-in-the-wings for your debut trusteeship?

All are welcome, so please do visit the website to find out more about the company and how to apply.

We're looking forward to the rave reviews about your application!
