Location: One London/Perth based, the other in Saudi Arabia (one of 3 cities)
Requirement: Arabic Speaking / UK based

Who are we looking for ?

a) 5 x UK-based, Arabic-speaking designers who would be keen to work with their aspiring Saudi counterparts on a 2 week programme of skills exploration in London (18th-30th July). Any applicants based in Scotland could join the programme in Perth (1st Aug-8th Sept).

We are looking for aspiring/practicing musical director/repetiteurs, choreographer/dance captains, director/workshop leaders. The hope is that longer term links could lead to work being created with the emerging Saudi talent and other collaborations forged. This is a paid opportunity plus all expenses covered.
