Financial support for performers from diverse backgrounds, to participate in our acclaimed clowning and business workshops.
Since our inception in 1998, Spymonkey have created some of the most outstandingly original theatre in Britain, drawing on the disciplines of clown, physical theatre and devised theatre.
We are committed to supporting the development of the next generation of comedy performers. Our professional training workshops are delivered by the artistic directors and associate artists in the UK and across the world. Participants develop techniques of clowning, comedy, devising and music theatre in a way which is transferable to their own practice. We also offer practical sessions on the business of making and touring a show.
Having worked with performers and theatre makers in our shows, through our collaborations with other organisations, and our education and training work, we are aware of the lack of diversity in theatre, and within comedy performance in particular. Alongside this, the financial barrier to accessing professional development is a real obstruction for many people. We are therefore keen to play our part in addressing this, by offering two bursary places to people from diverse backgrounds and others who are underrepresented on our stages. This could include (but is not exclusive of):
Our next three week Clown Creation School will take place 2nd-20th March 2020, Monday-Friday 10am-6pm at Toynbee Studios in London.
If you are interested in applying for a bursary place please download the application pack.
We are fundraising to support the costs associated with this bursary, which will also include £500 towards travel and accommodation for one of the places in order to support someone from outside of London.
Application DEADLINE: Friday 10th January 2020
