Objectives

Actors of Dionysus (aod) is a UK based national and international touring theatre company that produces new adaptations of ancient Greek drama and new writing inspired by classical mythology. In the past 25 years we have toured over 50 productions and performed to over 750,000 people, becoming the UK's leading interpreters in this field and recognised for keeping the Classics alive and accessible.

Underlying our work is a passion to ‘make magic from myth’ by producing innovative, compelling and powerful theatre performed in an accessible and inventive way. We are committed to producing a high quality outreach programme of workshops, post show talks and educational resources, and our productions regularly reach audiences in schools, in theatres and beyond.

As we celebrate our 25th birthday we are at a crucial time in our development, and vitally need support in the area of strategic development and business planning, as we work on our future programme of work.

 

Activities

Our committed board of trustees and Inner Circle of support help us to implement our ambitious plans for creating bold performance work, providing high quality outreach activities and offering exciting new aod events. Because we are not regularly funded what we lack is additional 'on the ground' support in key specific areas such as strategic development. We identify that a three - five year strategic business plan is vital for the charity moving forward, and we are looking for voluntary support with expertise in this area to support us with the manpower to undertake this task.
