National Dance Company of Wales’ Technical Director, Joe Fletcher, will be taking up the role of Technical Director of Sydney Dance Company.
Joe has been a member of the Company over the last 8 years, during this time he has designed for many choreographers such as Andonis Foniadakis, Eleesha Drennan, Gustavo Ramirez & Lee Johnston and taken his work to China, India and across Europe and the UK.
“Coleg Ceredigion gave me a unique experience studying, and also creating and working with industry professionals within a professional theatre environment,” explained Joe Fletcher, “This was hugely beneficial as I left the college with not only a great qualification, but also two years hands on experience which got me places at several universities and technical jobs at the age of eighteen.”
Ashley Wallington, Curriculum Manager at Coleg Ceredigion, said: “This is a fantastic achievement and a truly amazing opportunity for him. This September, we approach the twentieth anniversary of the Performing Arts Department at Coleg Ceredigion and it’s fantastic seeing so many students from those early days with such established careers in all aspects of the performing arts industry.”
