A child at heart, Jacinta has been working in the arts industry since 2015. Particularly passionate about making theatre magic she has floated between Stage Management, Production Administration and is so excited to be a member of the Patch team in Tour/Stage Management.
What drew you to a career in the arts?
I always like to say that my private Cirque De Sole shows (that I would perform to my family on my backyard jungle gym) were what really cemented my passion for the arts, but choosing it as a career happened by luck and chance. I applied to a stage management course on a whim, got in and have loved it ever since.
Tell us about your career highlights thus far
I’m privileged to have worked on so many amazing projects and events. After finishing university, I was a secondment student for Sydney Festival, Adelaide Festival and Dragone’s permanent show The House of Dancing Water in Macau and then moving on to work with Adelaide Festival from 2017 to 2020 whilst getting to tour Patch’s Cranky Bear and Me & My Shadow.
My career highlights so far include flying 25 metres in the air across a pool of water in rigging/aerial training for Dragone, going on my first national tour (with the beautiful show Me & My Shadow) and, given I am such a fan of the festive season, working on the Adelaide Christmas Pageant.
