Theatre Ontario is thrilled to announce the return of the International Creators Scholarship, funding emerging artists’ training in theatre creation with the SITI Company.
The Scholarship—which will be offered in 2015 and 2016—was created in partnership with Why Not Theatre and is sponsored by SDA Enterprises with matching funds from artsVest Toronto.
The Scholarship allows an emerging artist to train with Anne Bogart and the SITI Company for one month (June 7 to July 4, 2015) in Saratoga Springs, New York. They will train in Suzuki, Viewpoints, as well as directing and devising new work. SITI was founded in 1992 by Anne Bogart and Tadashi Suzuki to redefine and revitalize contemporary theatre in the United States through an emphasis on international cultural exchange and collaboration. For the past 22 years, their impact can be seen on theatre creators around the world.
This program is designed to address the need for theatre artists to access more contemporary artistic training opportunities and to encourage artists to set the stage for the future of theatre and performance creation in Ontario, by having the opportunity to experience high caliber international training.
The 2015 application deadline is March 13.
