Rachel: “I returned to DanceEast in September 2013 as Head of Communications and Development at the Jerwood DanceHouse. It is thrilling to be based in these world-class dance facilities on the Ipswich Waterfront having previously worked for DanceEast, as Press and Marketing Officer from 2002 to 2006, on The Red Shoe Appeal, the capital campaign to build and open the DanceHouse.

“My 14 year career in the arts has included roles in communications and development across the UK with regional producing theatres, contemporary dance and theatre companies and an arts marketing and press agency, including York Theatre Royal, Pilot Theatre, the Mercury Theatre Colchester, Forced Entertainment, The Magenta Partnership and Brighton Theatre Royal.”

Joseph: “Hello. I’m Joseph, a full time marketer who occasionally dabbles in code. I create engaging video content, do cool things on the web and make email look good in Outlook 2007. I love house music and cold coffee. I’m currently working at the New Wolsey Theatre as a Digital Marketing Officer.”
