The Old Vic 12
The search is on to find the next group of exciting artists to become the third Old Vic 12.
The Old Vic 12 is a group of 12 extraordinary developing artists ready to take the next step in their careers. The scheme provides opportunities to expand their networks, receive first class mentoring and benefit from a prestigious association with The Old Vic through an attachment to this iconic building. The selected 12 will also receive a grant to create and develop three brand new plays to be presented at The Old Vic.
The Old Vic is looking for three directors, three playwrights, three producers and three exciting collaborators from any discipline: designers, composers, DJs, lighting designers, movement directors, illusionists and everything in-between; if you’re interested in collaboration and new plays, we want to hear from you.
The successful applicants will be creatives looking to make a change in their work, whether that’s a step up or the support to go in a new direction. Applicants should be creating their own work on the fringe, assisting established practitioners or working at the equivalent level, and feel that they would benefit from a structured year and attachment to an independent producing theatre.
As with each role we recruit for at The Old Vic, we welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds.
Opening date for applications: Tuesday 8 August
Closing date for applications: by 12pm Tuesday 30 August
Encounter and Fuel are seeking 3 deaf actors to work on the R&D of their new project, Deaf Choir.
A chorus of deaf singers will interpret a classical score accompanied by live musicians and, as their unique song of original sounds fill the auditorium, contemporary dancers translate their voices into movement. Turning commonly held perceptions of ‘beautiful’ sounds, ‘professional’ dance and ‘high’ art on their head, this performance aims to challenge what we understand as belonging to the classical tradition.
You don’t need any professional experience of singing. There are two sessions of 3 hours on Tuesday 12th September and Thursday 14th September. This is a paid opportunity
