  • Description

    Description

    Our theatre company is a most unique theatre venue -- a 30 meter tall ship. We have been touring contemporary professional theatre for over 40 years. The nomadic company tours its innovative theatrical productions on to the deck and in the rigging of a Ship Theatre that has been touring internationally: Canada, USA, Europe and the Mediterranean. NOT a cruise ship. In 2016, the company will be touring southern US to finish on the west coast of BC, Canada.

    In late 2017 and early 2018, the company will be in down time, working on: ship maintenance - repairs and upkeep of the vessel, both exterior and interior; and, put together a program for 2018 that will take place in Canada's west coast. During this time we are looking for people who can help with the wood carpentry, ship repair, engine work, cooking, fundraising, do book keeping, community outreach.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They will be a part of a unique experience that involves young people working and living together in a beautiful west coast environment. The shows that the ship produces are original and thought provoking with a political or social message. Travelers will learn skills in living and working in a community of artists. In administration, lots to learn in alternative fundraising and product solicitation.
