Youth Theatre Performance, Mentored by Zoukak

Zoukak is launching a Youth Theatre Performance project addressed to youths (between 15 and 19 years old) wishing to explore theatre professionally. Those interested in acting, writing, directing, stage-management, light, sound, costume and set design are invited to apply. We are looking for highly motivated youths, willing to be invested in a long-term theatre project, and eager to work collectively and develop tools that allow them to expand their knowledge and expertise in the field. Prior experience is preferable, but not required.

The selected youths will be responsible for creating their own theatre play as a group, under the supervision of Zoukak mentors. They will be led through the creative process from conception to execution to the final outcome: a public performance.

They will be asked to commit to the program between the 12th of Jan till the 15th of June 2019, for four hours a week which will take place on Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays (exact day to be confirmed on a later stage)

The participants will experience all the phases of theatre making, from the various standpoints that interest them, whether creative or technical.

The project includes theatre-training sessions conducted by Zoukak. The training will provide various practical tools and theatre techniques, introducing the participants to physical and verbal improvisation, writing and composition exercises, etc…

In addition to leading the youths practically through a theatre creation process, the project aims to develop the participants’ mental and physical abilities and strengthen their expressive and listening skills, widening the imagination within a collaborative framework.


How to apply?
Applicants are asked to submit a motivation letter including highlights of their experience in the field, to the following email address: before 15 December 2018 midnight.
