The Company
Lucy Guerin Inc (LGI) is a contemporary dance company based at WXYZ Studios in North Melbourne. Across its 22-year history, the company has established itself as being at the forefront of contemporary dance practice through the creation of an acclaimed repertoire of works that regularly tour nationally and internationally.

Each year we present a range of new work and sector programs including world premieres, tours of works in repertoire, creative development projects, residencies, talks, and so much more.

WXYZ Studios is LGI’s home base, and in the six years since opening has grown to become a thriving hub that supports the development of independent choreographers and dancers in Melbourne, and promotes dialogue and exchange with national and international artists.

While our studio spaces are wheelchair accessible, we regret that accessibility to our office is currently more limited, and includes a stepped entrance as well as internal stairs to other facilities. Please let us know if you require more information about access at WXYZ.

The Role
The Executive Producer plays an active and integral role in the success of Lucy Guerin Inc and its continuing leadership as a major, innovative, influential, and internationally recognised contemporary performing arts company.

The role provides a motivated, passionate, collaborative and dynamic professional with the opportunity to directly advocate for, and contribute to, the growth of contemporary dance in Melbourne, Australia, and beyond. The Executive Producer will support the Artistic Director/CEO, Board of Directors, staff, artists, and dancers of the Company, and the broader local dance community, to achieve their shared artistic and creative goals.

Some of the reasons you’ll enjoy working at LGI:
– We pride ourselves on being a friendly, inclusive workplace.
