Immerse yourself in a one-of-a-kind training opportunity

Outside the March is seeking young artists (aged 18 – 25) to take part in our Artistic Accomplice Program in conjunction with our upcoming production of Jerusalem.


What is the Artistic Accomplice Program?

The program is a paid opportunity to receive training and mentorship while taking part in the creation of, and participating in, a large-scale Outside the March production.

A small group of emerging artists will serve as Artistic Accomplices on Jerusalem, gaining hands-on experience creating and producing immersive theatre. Among other responsibilities, they will serve as the audience’s guides through Jerusalem’s immersive pre-show sequence.

In addition, Accomplices will take part in a series of talkback sessions and workshops with established artists in Outside the March’s creative team and network. Each Accomplice will also receive a dedicated one-on-one mentorship with a senior artist from the Jerusalem team in a discipline of their choosing—acting, directing, producing, design, etc.

Since 2013, dozens of emerging theatre artists have taken part in Outside the March’s Artistic Accomplice program, working on immersive theatre experiences like Passion Play, Vitals, Mr. Burns and TomorrowLoveTM.

About Jerusalem

A pied piper tale for the Tarantino generation, Jerusalem is the story of aging daredevil Johnny “Rooster” Byron, purveyor of drugs, alcohol, mythic tales and sanctuary to the troubled teens of Wiltshire county. A bold new exploration of one of the most lauded plays of the past twenty years, described by Ben Brantley of The New York Times as  “a great frame-busting play that thinks big — transcendently big — in ways contemporary drama seldom dares”.

Our Artistic Accomplice Program offers emerging artists a paid opportunity to participate as key creative collaborators in Outside the March’s creation process.

The Accomplices are a group of emerging theatre artists who are invited to gain hands-on experience creating and producing site-specific work. Participants in the Program perform in our Experiences in ensemble roles, as well as serve as the audience’s guide through the immersive world of the show. Each Accomplice also receives a dedicated one-on-one mentorship with a senior OtM artist in a discipline of their choosing—directing, producing, design etc. Our generous sponsors make the Artistic Accomplice positions possible.
