Laura Elliot and Corey Campbell, leadership team at Coventry’s Belgrade Theatre, have announced that six people will be joining its newly structured producing team.
Adel Al-Salloum, who has had senior leadership positions at Northern Stage and Leicester’s Curve, joins as director of producing and co-creation.
Previously Tobacco Factory Theatres’ associate director, Jay Zorenti-Nakhid will be associate director at the Belgrade. Over the past 10 years, he has created and directed a wide range of theatre projects across the UK as well as in Rwanda, India and Vietnam.
Assistant producer Charlotte Titcombe was with Birmingham Opera Company, where she co-ordinated the company's development activities and worked on acclaimed shows RhineGold and The Decision.
Lucy Tutchings becomes producing administrator. Previously, she was an apprentice at the Belgrade. Evie Osbon is community engagement facilitator after regularly leading Nottingham Playhouse’s participation team.
Laura Elliot said, “appointing this team marks another step change in the Belgrade Theatre’s evolution, driving forward our vision, co-creating theatre with, by and for the city and region and sharing it with the world. Corey and I are delighted and honoured to work with each of them to set the foundations of a ‘people-first’ organisation, providing transformative experiences, diverse storytelling, mutual learning and enrichment.”
