Eligible Applicants: students or recent graduates of programs related to live theatre, and emerging artists under 30 years of age.
Every summer Crane Creations Theatre Company hires a group of emerging artists for eight to ten weeks to discover what it means to be a professional Canadian theatre artist in Canada. We explore classical text and develop new work, while sharing our knowledge of different professional theatre companies from Canada and around the world. We also discuss what makes good theatre, and investigate what is currently being produced, assessing what has theatre’s role been throughout history so we can use it to its full potential. Financial tools and training are also provided to participants and information on funding opportunities for artists as well.
This honest, and action packed skills training program’s goal is to expand your ideas and knowledge about theatre while providing participants with an unparalleled insight into the industry. We specifically focus on being an artist in Canada, and the unique challenges that come along with that. All this because we believe artists deserve to understand how the industry works to be able to best participate in it.
