Freelance Drama Therapist, Drunken Chorus


Freelance Drama Therapist


Drunken Chorus is a registered charity and theatre company, established in 2007. We run creative programmes for adults with learning disabilities (DISCO DISCO); produce inclusive and accessible public events, including our flagship festival A Bit Of A Do; support artists and companies who are d/Deaf, visually impaired and/or disabled; create and tour accessible performances to local audiences; and support emerging artists to create new work.

We currently run a project called DISCO DISCO – a company of 10 adults with learning disabilities, who create contemporary performances for public audiences at events and festivals in Croydon and across London. In April 2020 we will begin a new series of weekly workshops for a second group of adults with learning disabilities, who want to take part in drama activities, socialise and increase their confidence in a more relaxed environment, without the pressure to perform in front of an audience.

We are now seeking an experienced Drama Therapist to run this new series of weekly workshops in Croydon on Monday evenings (4.30-6pm), alongside an assistant tutor. 

We are looking for an experienced Drama Therapist who has worked with vulnerable adults, people with learning disabilities, and those who are at risk from exclusion in society and / or from developing mental health problems.
