Professional Development Bursary

In addition to travel expenses, Seemia Theatre will provide the successful candidate with a Development Bursary of £500 to support them to take up this opportunity.*

(*Subject to a successful ACE funding application.)

Who is this opportunity for?

Seemia are looking to specifically engage an actor who identifies as Black and Male. This is an identity not currently represented in the company, and it is anticipated that the development journey of TAKE ON THIS will include the incorporation of a narrative voice which represents the the voice of Black people in relation to the show’s exploration of how racism may underpin notions of terrorism.

There is no age requirement, though it should be noted that the company’s practice has a strong movement element, and their devising process includes sustained periods of physical exploration. This is a training and development opportunity, and as such residency week is an introduction to a way of working for a performer, and an introduction to sharing practice for the company. Expertise in physical theatre, movement practice, devising or multi-media performance is not needed. The company will shape the opportunity around the right candidate, ensuring their own creative voice is brought to the fore. 

Potential Performer Profile

  • You may be an emerging performer, seeking a training opportunity or an established artist keen to experiment in new kinds of practice. 

  • You may identify primarily as an actor, or bring an alternative profile as a performance artist.
