Competition: Win a place on Iris Theatre’s Masterclass on Verse Drama

Posted on 16 January 2014 by A Younger Theatre

Our friends at Iris Theatre are launching a series of Masterclasses at its home in St Paul’s Church in Covent Garden, and we’re giving two AYT readers the chance to take part, for free!

Iris Theatre

Iris Theatre: Masterclasses

Every participant will gain a deeper understanding and a greater degree of ownership of verse drama. These classes will be a unique opportunity to increase your confidence and broaden the range of your classical repertoire. Each Masterclass will stand alone, though each season of classes will have an overall theme for participants to explore. The Masterclasses are open to actors of all backgrounds.

Masterclass 1 – Verse Beginnings Sun 26th Jan at 5:30pm – 8:30pm

Starting with Beowulf, and moving on through Chaucer and the Medieval Mystery Plays to the later Morality Plays we will look at the roots of English verse drama. By embodying these earlier pieces, both physically and imaginatively, you will discover keys which will be invaluable for the later, more complex, Elizabethan dramatic verse.

Iris Theatre was created in 2007 to produce work at the world-famous St. Paul’s Church in Covent Garden. Growing year on year, Iris gained full charity status in Oct 2009 with a mission to support the development of the next generation of professional theatre practitioners and to produce a fresh and vibrant repertoire of varied work resulting in affordable and accessible theatre.

For more information see the Iris Theatre website.

The Marlowe Theatre reopened in October 2011.  Since then, the theatre has welcomed over 700,000 customers to performances by some of the country’s most important touring companies, ranging from Glyndebourne Opera and the National Theatre to major West End productions.  We are also very proud to be working with the National Theatre on their Connections programme for young people and to be part of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Learning and Performance Network for schools.

Deadline: Monday 20 January 2014, 9am

This is a part-time, paid opportunity. To apply please send a CV and cover letter to Daniel Lipman, The Marlowe Theatre, The Friars, Canterbury, Kent, CT1 2AS or email Daniel.Lipman@marlowetheatre.com.

One student accepted onto the Fourth Monkey Two Year Rep training course will be given a part-paid scholarship for two years.

Fourth Monkey Theatre Company’s Two Year Rep is a full-time contemporary repertory theatre company and actor training programme, offering an innovative approach and leading to professional employment with the Fourth Monkey Ensemble. Throughout the training, students attend a residential commedia dell’arte course in Italy and extensive actor-training, including workshops with Complicite and Told by an Idiot, as well performing as an ensemble in London and at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

We at A Younger Theatre are committed to supporting and developing emerging talent within theatre and the arts. We see the A Younger Theatre Scholarship to Fourth Monkey Theatre Company as an extension of our mission, opening up opportunities to those who deserve the support. This scholarship will form part of the continued artistic endeavours of A Younger Theatre, which include the new INCOMING Festival for the best emerging theatre companies in May 2014 with the New Diorama Theatre.
