As this year we were inspired by iridescence, we’re now looking for a new colleague who understands what light does to a performance hall and how everything works in the technical department of a dance and performance culture institution.
The job nomenclature describes the position as Head of Stage Technical Office, and for us it’s mostly a professional lighting person, one that is skilled, thorough and cool.
