All the world’s a stage…

Today is World Theatre Day

Today is the 56th time for the global theatre community to officially celebrate theatre as an art form. Theatres, actors and theatre lovers all over the world will mark this day with national and international events.

One of the most important of these is the circulation of the World Theatre Day Message, through which a world-renowned figure shares his or her reflections on the theme of Theatre and a Culture of Peace.

If there ever were a better time to achieve a culture of peace, it is now when we are all connected with an increasing number of people choosing to become nomads — digital or physical. This is what Jobbatical is all about — bringing the most varied opportunities for you to grasp. Be it a Sales Rep in Barcelona or a Developer in the Swiss Alps. And, soon, we hope — an actor in Berlin or a theater director in Sydney.


French theatre and movie actress Isabelle Huppert will be the author of this year’s Theatre Day Message that’ll be translated into 50+ languages. Would you believe that there are 147 languages represented on Jobbatical — and this is what we counted just this past month!

The first World Theatre Day Message was written by Jean Cocteau in 1962. It is translated into more than 50 languages, read to tens of thousands of spectators before performances in theatres throughout the world, and printed in hundreds of daily newspapers. Also, more than a hundred radio and television stations will be transmitting the message to listeners in all corners of the five continents. This year, the main event will be celebrated at the UNESCO hall in Paris, and French theatre and movie actress Isabelle Huppert will be the author of this year’s message.

The day is also meant to act as a wake-up call for governments, politicians and institutions that have not yet recognised the value of theatre — for the people and for the individual — and have not yet realised its potential for economic growth. We here at Jobbatical have an array of gigs and talents to choose from, and theatres, creatives or tech talent working in the industry would definitely be great assets to add to this list. And politicians — if you ever crave to change your career or country…

We’d love for ya’ll to join our community on Jobbatical.com. I mean, who wouldn’t want to hire Ryan Gosling?
