Artistic Interns wanted: Theatre Gargantua (Deadline Aug 17)

In Jobs on August 9, 2011 by danceumbrella

Theatre Gargantua is seeking TWO interns who are serious and committed to pursuing a career in the performing arts. Our internship program is designed to provide an opportunity for emerging artists to expand their skills and experience through observing and participating in Theatre Gargantua’s creation cycle. Specifically, participants will attend all rehearsal and creative meetings while simultaneously assisting in areas of production (e.g. set, lighting, costumes, stage management, and director assistance) and administration (e.g. publicity, marketing and promotion). Through this program, interns will develop new skills that will be useful in future artistic and producing endeavours.

The internship will begin at the end of September and continue through performances of the world premiere of IMPRINTS to be staged at Factory Studio Theatre from November 08 to November 26.

Successful applicants will have a background in theatre or dance, an interest in multi-disciplinary work and/or collaborative creation processes, and are able to commit to the full length of the project. Interns will receive an honorarium for their participation.

Applications can submit a resume and a cover letter detailing interest in the program and the company as it relates to their future career aspirations.

The deadline to submit applications is Wednesday August 17, 2011.

Please send to citing ‘Artistic Internship’ in the subject line or by fax at 416.588.3793. (Please no phone calls.)

Theatre Gargantua is an equal opportunity employer who encourages applications from candidates with disabilities, Aboriginal candidates, and candidates who are members of a visible minority.
