Brick Moon residencies

Website BigTellyNI The Big Telly Theatre Company

Brick Moon will be launching its pilot scheme Autumn/Winter 23’.

We are looking to engage with artists who are interested in using this space as an area to share their creative process with a global audience, alongside other artists. Every creator will occupy the space differently.

Brick Moon is open to all kinds of artists, whether your work is visual, audible, edible, wearable, we want to see it.


We are looking for creatives interested in curating and delivering a series of eight week programmes in Brick Moon. The lead creative may have a background in curation, production, tech, theatre-making or stage management, and will be responsible for animating all of the spaces in Brick Moon.

To discuss our residency programme, or to apply for our current position, please contact Crissy on producer@big-telly.com, with covering letter and resume.

Closing date for our first residency is 14th August, 22’.

Big Telly is an equal opportunities employer and Brick Moon aims to be a diverse and inclusive space for all. 

About Us

Big Telly Theatre Company designs professional theatre productions, site specific theatre, immersive games and participatory community driven projects, primarily throughout Northern Ireland. 

We are the longest established professional theatre company in Northern Ireland. With work spanning over 30 years, the company has a reputation for innovation and accessibility.  We work across sectors, using arts to deliver objectives for health, education, heritage, tourism, economic development, social development, rural development and town regeneration. 

We maintain close ongoing relationships with the private sector and Local Government Districts, multiple arts venues/teams and communities and have excellent reach into areas not well served by arts funding or provision. Strategically, we position most of our work outside the metropolitan areas of Belfast and Londonderry in areas that are less well served by arts infrastructure and funding. 

As a company, we seek to innovate how and where theatre is made and performed and how theatre can serve the community to create long term impact. We are audience focused and our work seeks to immerse people, create emotional responses and be experiential and inclusive. In particular we aim to create ‘shared spaces’ in places in NI that are single identity and frequently contested. We do this by placing work outside traditional arts spaces such as shops and by using NI stories, myths and local legends as inspiration for narratives which inspire our rich cultural heritage without being culturally ‘singular’. 

Brick Moon is an interactive venue amongst the stars. Visiting audiences can browse through a multitude of spaces from workshop to performance to gallery.
