Talawa is hiring two Stage Management roles

We are looking for two stage manager roles, one for a touring outdoor production and one as ASM for an indoor theatre production.


Talawa brings back The Tide; an artistic collaboration between choreographer Jade Hackett and writer Ryan Calais Cameron.  The Tide explores the narratives and experiences of migration within The United Kingdom whilst holding a mirror to an evolving British culture. The Tide is a Talawa Theatre Company, FESTIVAL.ORG, and Breakin’ Convention co-production. Having already wowed audiences at festivals through 2019, The Tide will play at Croydon and also Greenwich + Docklands International Festival in August 2021.

  •  20 & 21 August– Croydon Performances (tbc)

A disused warehouse.

A party rages.

Distorted bass pulses through the streets, calling the ravers in.

Lost in the music and dripping with sweat, the collective surrender to the DJ’s game.

Bring your rags and flags for a night of theatre powered by grime, bashment and afrobeat.


Run It Back is a powerful, exciting, explosive show from Talawa Theatre Company. Conceived and directed by Coral Messam, created with Gail Babb, and devised by TYPT:18.

Run It Back features dance, physical theatre and a live DJ set to ignite the action.

This production of Run It Back revives the sell-out show from TYPT:18, originally produced by Talawa Theatre Company working with today's most exciting emerging Black theatre makers.

Directed by Coral Messam.


★★★★★ The Upcoming (Selina Begum)

"Run It Back defines the rave culture scene ... realising the British Black experience without condescension ... must-see immersive theatre"
