Can you JUGGLE more than one thing at a time?

Do you like PARTNERING up with cool people?

What about CLOWNING around on the job?

DYNAMO is Odense's local theater for contemporary circus, and we are always happy to welcome new volunteers to our team to help out behind the scenes, behind the bar, or in "front of house". Be a part of a team of Danish and international staffers, artists and volunteers, if you want to have a good time and expand your network!

HOW DOES IT WORK: 

Our volunteers are active on a weekly basis - one or two days every week, in shifts of ca. 4 hours. Some weeks, we need more help, when we have big events, that require we transform our space, or our annual festival in June, for which we work ca. 2 months intensely.

The shifts can be during weekdays or weekends, in the daytime or in the evening, according to the tasks. We are a children-friendly place, so you can bring your child/grandchild/little brother with. 

Every month, we have an Open House Day, where we choose to fix up things in the building - painting, organising, repairing - and we invite our friends to join. The day ends with a beer and some food! 

 

WHAT DO VOLUNTEERS DO: 

  • Bartending: our bar is really small and not super complicated. Once in a while, we have big parties, where we take it up a notch. A typical shift is 4 hours, serving about 60 people. You won't be alone in the bar. 
  • Practical stuff: we belive in reusing and upcycling things, so we often transform things to build scenography, or decorate our cosy space. We paint, cut wood, repair, sew. There will always be someone there to give instructions. 
  • Fixing bikes: We have a lot of international artists in residence, so they are using our bikes. They are not new bikes, so they often break down. If you have a talent for fixing them or creating new form the old, we would really love your help!  
  • Distribution: help us get the word out by putting posters, flyers and programs in town and in cafes! 
  • Festival volunteer: in May and June, we build an entire festival and you get to help with scenography, putting up circus tents, building stages, welcoming artists, helping technicians, helping our food team, painting signs, sewing festival flags.
  • As a DJ: We often need a DJ for afterparties, or evenings after performances. We would like DYNAMO to be a nice place where people like to spend time, meet others, and make friends, and atmosphere is everything! 
  • Making food: Sometimes, there's a lot of mouths to feed, and our food team needs an extra hand. Depends on your skills, but you'll get to chop, clean, serve, stir, etc. 
  • Circus skills: if you have circus skills, we'd love to hear about it. We often have events for children and people who want to learn how to juggle. 

 

WHAT DO VOLUNTEERS GET: 

  • A DYNAMO annual card which gives you entry to all our performances. 
  • A T-shirt 
  • Free drinks on your shift + food 
  • Our gratitude
