These are some of the amazing people we met along the way. Exchanging ideas, collaborating and making work with them was vital to make RedSand what it is today.
Jules derives from a long line of stage performers, ranging from Dancers to Ventriloquists, who have performed all over the uk, including the West End. Jules showed an interest in Theatre from a young age, spending countless hours backstage watching various family members performing, while trying her best to help the stage crew and doing what children do best by asking endless questions. Her interest for Backstage and Production increased and she soon found herself Crewing shows, designing and building stage sets and helping out with Light and Sound for countless Productions, finally landing her first job as Production Manager for a local Amateur Dramatic Society. Since then she has Produced for multiple Companies, covering all aspects of performing arts. Jules is the newest member of RedSand and is excited to have the opportunity to be the Production Manager for a rising Theatre Company, well known for the performances that it puts on throughout Europe.
Jo has recently completed a two week R&D for a children’s show entitled ‘Ellie and The Enormous Sneeze,’ which involved lots of sneezing sounds and playing around with cardboard. It will be going to Edinburgh Fringe Festival this year. Jo constantly strives to work on a variety of projects and continually learn and push her practise from collaborating with new and exciting creative teams.
