Are you passionate about theatre? Your chance to step into the spotlight is here.
A partnership with Access Path Productions, SRT’s Inclusive Young Company (iYC) is a holistic acting programme for young persons and adults between the ages of 16 – 35, who identify as persons with disabilities. Both SRT and Access Path Productions as organisations believe in addressing the imbalance of accessibility to the arts.
We believe in working with you, your experiences, and your stories, to support disabled-led and -focused work. We are passionate about guiding and honing your artistry and capabilities as individuals, with high-quality processes and execution.
iYC features professional masterclasses and mentorship led by international artist Grace Lee-Khoo and various guest facilities, which will provide a platform for the development of your creative potential as an independent performer and theatre-maker.
Our key outcomes for this exciting programme include offering equality of learning and professional development for young persons, engaging the general public with performances that reflect the experiences of marginalised communities in Singapore, and deepening the wider conversation around access in the arts, and beyond.
Some of the benefits you can expect from the programme:
Broadening and harnessing your talents alongside an incredibly diverse ensemble of fellow actors-in-training
Making lifelong friendships and collaborations with individuals as passionate as you are
Having opportunities to meet and network with partner organisations and artists, both local and international
Access to our main stage productions, and the creative teams behind them
The first semester of our 2023 programme will take place from January – April 2022, and the second semester from July – October 2023. The participation fee is SGD200.00 per semester.
