RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE DESK:
The Theatre Arts Office conceptualises, designs, coordinates and delivers a range of training, research and performance oriented programmes across the dramatic and theatre arts.
From residencies for early career directors, to stagecraft apprenticeships, drama in education programmes, to full scale dramatic productions, we nurture the development of all areas of the art form, including, but not limited to:
|Speech in Performance||Drama/Theatre in Education||Lighting|
|Play Development||Acting||Make Up|
|Dramaturgy||Set Design and Construction||Costume Design|
We advise on and monitor programmes run in collaboration with our various stakeholders and partners (eg. Youth Achieving Results -YAR, with The Community Development Department of the Ministry of Culture); and we lead the coordination of the Theatre Arts component of The National Independence Festival of Creative Arts – NIFCA.
Theatre Arts also works closely with all departments in the Foundation and the wider arts community in the development and production of small and large scale theatre arts events.
