Globe seeks two South Africans
Issued by PANSA
Applications from South African actors are invited for the International Artistic Residence at Shakespeares Globe Theatre, from 2 to 31 August, 2004 in London. The Performing Arts Network of South Africa (PANSA) will manage the selection process for the residence.
Applications must be submitted by Wednesday, 19 May. Auditions will be held at The Actors Centre in Johannesburg during June.
Founded by the pioneering American actor Sam Wanamaker, Shakespeares Globe is a unique international resource dedicated to the exploration of Shakespeares work, and the playhouse for which he wrote, by means of education and performance. In keeping with the standards of its own theatre company, Shakespeares Globe aims to select only candidates of the highest calibre and most apparent suitability for its annual International Artistic Residence for professional theatre artists.
The Residence is not aimed at teachers and education practitioners, but focuses primarily on stage and performance techniques for the working actor. It is not designed to turn artists into English Globe actors, but to explore discoveries made at the Globe so that participants can return to their own culture of playing Shakespeare with something to share of the experience of original playing conditions.
The course is an intensive 4-week programme of voice, movement, verse and acting work and participants will work as an ensemble for 5 days a week with as much access to the stage as possible. The Residence will be led by an experienced Master of Play supported by resident Masters of Voice, Movement and Words who are international Globe specialists. The programme will culminate in an evening performance on the Globe stage on 30 August.
All travel and accommodation costs are covered by Shakespeares Globe.
Applications are invited from South African actors. They must submit:
The deadline for applications is Wednesday, 19 May. Submissions must be typed and preferably e-mailed to Noel McDonald, Co-ordinator for this project, at email@example.com.
Additional hard copy submissions with supporting material may be posted to P.O. Box 659, Allensnek, 1737, Johannesburg, or hand-delivered to the PANSA National Office at 28 Denbigh Road, Parkwood, Johannesburg 2193. Hand-written submissions, those that exceed the requirements above, or those that arrive after 19 May will not be accepted.
The selection process will be in two parts: all applications will be forwarded to an experienced selection panel, which will carefully screen the applications. Successful candidates will be notified by 26 May and invited to audition for the panel over a period of 2 to 3 days in early June, in Johannesburg.
They must make their own travel and accommodation arrangements for the auditions. Candidates must prepare one classical monologue plus a second as reserve. They may be called upon for a call-back audition, the requirements of which will be decided upon by the selection panel. All candidates will be notified of the outcome by 10 June.
