Work With Barbican Theatre

We believe our work will be stronger with greater diversity and welcome applications from those who bring difference. Barbican Theatre welcomes the whole person to work, and we understand that each of us bring our experiences, our backgrounds and our own unique view and interpretation to what we do. Supporting our staff means they are not appointed to represent specific groups or organisation.
About Barbican Theatre Plymouth
Barbican Theatre is committed to building Plymouth’s cultural voice. We have been working for 42 years to inspire the next generation of artists and entrepreneurs to find their creative voices (voices often unheard). 
We are an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation (NPO) and a registered charity. We specialise in creating performances and events for unique spaces, mixing genres and styles to create innovative, accessible work, and taking performances that people want to engage with, direct to their communities.  We are committed to inclusivity regardless of cultural, sexual or social background. 
Our CEO is award winning choreographer Laura Kriefman, who specialises in the fusion of movement and technology, and has an extensive background across a number of art forms. She is supported by a highly experienced core team of professionals in production, tech, marketing, finance, event management, theatre, and dance. 
People can get involved with our work in so many ways; not just as a participant or an audience member. We have opportunities to engage with technical, choreography, directing, writing, producing, designing, digital, film making and much more.  There are so many opportunities and experiences we want to help emerging talent explore and engage with so that together we can create work that inspires, challenges, entertains and educates. We believe that creativity belongs to everyone so we ensure our performances and workshops are affordable and accessible. 
Barbican Theatre is a registered charity, funded by Arts Council England, Plymouth City Council, Garfield Weston Foundation, Youth Music, and Esmée Fairbairn Foundation
