Emerge Company

A new training and professional development program for early- career theatre makers aged 18 to 25 years.

This exciting new program brings together actors, writers, directors, and theatre makers to collaborate, train, and create both as individual artists and as an ensemble.

Mentored by industry professionals, the Emerge Company will explore collaborative theatre making processes, and equip participants with the skills to develop their own work and produce independent theatre. This program is for emerging artists eager to develop creative skills, challenge their artistic practice, and gain the tools to build a sustainable career in the arts. Artists will work together to form a company, and create an imaginative and dynamic new work with a public presentation. This program will showcase the work of our most promising emerging theatre makers.

This program is designed for emerging actors committed to challenging themselves and exploring their craft. Selected by audition, this group of dedicated young people will participate in an intensive training program culminating in a studio production.
