THE ORGANIZATION
Necessary Angel is one of Canada’s preeminent and influential independent theatre companies. Founded in 1978, the company pioneered idea-based artist-driven theatre creation processes, influencing a generation of English-speaking companies and artists.

The company is proud to be a place where ambitious ideas are given space to grow and develop.  We are a catalyst for original work by some of Canada’s greatest theatre artists, urging forward projects that explore complex contemporary themes in unique sites and with boundary-pushing scopes. Many of its projects have been widely acclaimed and presented across the country, resulting in Governor General’s Awards for Drama, Chalmers Awards for Outstanding New Play and numerous Dora Mavor Moore Awards.

The company has had three artistic directors in it 40-year history: Richard Rose, Daniel Brooks and Jennifer Tarver.

THE POSITION
Necessary Angel Theatre is looking for a brilliant, visionary and highly effective artistic leader to serve as its next Artistic Director.  The ideal candidate will be deeply committed and curious about the contemporary theatre ecology and be willing to take on the leadership of one of the country’s oldest independent theatre companies as means to explore, engage and expand the possibilities of theatre in Canada.

The Artistic Director of Necessary Angel Theatre will report directly and be directly responsible to the company’s board of Directors. Day to day, in a working capacity, the position of Artistic Director is designed as a collaborative working partnership with the organization’s General Manager. This is a full-time position with a one-year evaluative term, the successful completion of which will be followed by a three-year term.

RESPONSIBILITIES
Artistic Vision

  • Invent, Develop and Articulate a compelling and cohesive artistic vision for the company, composed of new works, methods of engagement, intra- & inter-disciplinary collaborations, artist mentoring and a selection of plays for production.

  • Direct and lead projects to successful presentation, with specific focus on artistic excellence.
  • Research, develop, secure and nurture creative and production partnerships with intra- and inter-disciplinary partners.

Funding & Fundraising
Independent art making is profoundly dependent on public funding, patronage, donors and philanthropy. The General Manager and Artistic Director will be equally responsible for the financial sustainability of the company and its programs. As such, the Artistic Director will:

  • Actively develop, engage and nurture relationships with major gift donors, philanthropists and sponsors.
  • Collaborate with the General Manager to develop fundraising programs for smaller, recurring donors.

  • Familiarize and build a working relationship with council officers, meeting and communicating with councils to ensure alignment with mandates.
  • Take a leadership role, in collaboration with the General Manager, in securing funding for projects.

A critical component of developing and directing an Artistic Vision is articulating that vision.

  • The Artistic Director will take a proactive, advocacy approach to communicate their ideas and vision to the board, stakeholder groups (such as council, donors, partners) and to the staff at the company.

    • Speaking at press conferences and interviews with the media and other interest groups;
    • Representing the Company with PACT and national, provincial and municipal service organizations and other outside groups.

Administration
Fundamentally the role of the Artistic Director is designed as a working collaborative partnership with the General Manager, who will otherwise be responsible for the operational direction of the Company.

  • Managing, nurturing and maintaining a strong relationship with the Board of Directors is a critical component of the Artistic Director’s Administrative goals. As such, the Artistic Director will share responsibility and collaborate with the General Manager to actively communicate with the Board about:
    • The goals, objectives and work plans for the company’s projects;
    • Proposals for future projects prior to committing to them;
    • The Artistic Director will research, write and present evaluation reports to the Board of Directors regarding how the short and long-term artistic and company goals and objectives are being met and provide production summaries within 30 days of the production’s conclusion.
  • The Artistic Director will share responsibility and collaborate with the General Manager to ensure an effective execution of the administrative goals of the company, with a specific focus of coherence with artistic vision. This will include:
    • Participating with the Board and staff in short and long-term operational planning;
    • Auditioning, interviewing and selecting all artistic personnel including, but not limited to, actors, designers, composers, musicians and stage management as appropriate;
    • Staying pro-actively informed about all administrative issues and functions of the company; providing input as needed;
    • Supporting staff in the execution of operational initiatives where appropriate.

While the Company is open to the Artistic Director working on projects outside of Necessary Angel Theatre, the AD must demonstrably prioritize the needs of Necessary Angel above these other projects.
