Are we looking for you?

Could you be a Two Destination Language trustee?

Two Destination Language make and share award-winning contemporary theatre. It is bold, visually arresting and stimulates conversations about the society we live in. Our stage work tours nationally and internationally. Our engagement projects transform communities. Our curation of microfests has introduced artists to new audiences, and audiences to new work.

Our work investigates identity: cultural difference and what happens when cultures interact, or don’t. The Total Theatre Award winning Near Gone, described in the Guardian as “gorgeous and wild”, uses differences in language – physical, verbal and emotional – to tell a story of family; by contrast, LANDED works with older people to place an often marginalised group at the centre of an intimate contemporary performance.

The organisation is led by artists Alister Lownie and Katherina Radeva, who have created all Two Destination Language’s projects. The trustees oversee the organisation’s work, offering support and challenge as Katherina and Alister research, create and share high-quality stimulating experiences. We are at an exciting stage of development as we build on our profile both nationally and internationally and we are always looking for wise and creative minds to contribute to the growth of Two Destination Language.

This autumn, we're on a 24 date tour with Fallen Fruit, and next year will see two new pieces open. As we continue to grow the audiences we reach, our income and spend are also growing rapidly.

To support our growing ambition, creative output and impact, we are always looking to expand our board of trustees. Particularly if you're familiar with the challenges of growth in our sector, get in touch!
