Seeking Associate Artistic Directors, Associate Designers, and Associate Performing Artists
The Landless Theatre Company was founded in 2003 by a collective of artists who shared a common mission to cultivate new and diverse audiences for live theatre. Over the years, most of our founding artists have moved on to other artistic pursuits. In recognition of the need for more diversity, equity, and inclusion in DC theater, we are now accepting applications for new Company Members. We seek diverse artists in all theatre disciplines who believe in the mission of Landless Theatre Company, and who want to lead the artistic direction of our theatre company.

* Flexibility, compassion, and respect for diverse artists and diverse art
* Willingness to pitch in and contribute to every aspect of Company management
* Interest in working across the region between DC and Frederick, MD
