TALENT BRIDGE: A MANITOBA THEATRE CONNECTIONS SYMPOSIUM
September 12 - September 16
Winnipeg Studio Theatre Presents Our Inaugural
A MANITOBA THEATRE CONNECTIONS SYMPOSIUM
Seeking new Manitoba Performers
Successful candidates will participate in multiple FREE workshops led by Winnipeg’s Artistic Directors, taught in their own venues. A tour of the venue will also be provided.
Kimberley Rampersad, Artistic Associate of the Shaw Festival Theatre will join us as a guest speaker and participate in a Q&A.
Ongoing monologue coaching will occur throughout the week with local directors, building to a final showcase for an invited audience of local professionals including our Artistic Directors as well as freelance directors, artists, and educators.
Following the showcase, WST will host a reception to facilitate networking opportunities and a celebration of the week’s work.
Priority will be given to those artists who have not yet had a chance to make a connection with our local Artistic Directors.
If there is a potential barrier that might prevent you from applying, we encourage you to let us know so we can work with you to find a solution.
All submissions from graduates are encouraged regardless of age, disability, ethno-cultural identity, gender, or any other basis.
