We got This Email last week, thought we would post it in case anyone attending the class is interested. CAA are posting this info, and have no further details nor are we liable for any inaccuracy.
I’m a playwright from Manchester. I have previously had worked performed by Jude Law and last year I won the Cardiff Fringe Best Writing Award.
My theatre company are currently looking for a sketch artist to be part of our latest production. We are trying to find somebody who can respond live to the play, whose work would be projected throughout the entirety of an hour-long performance. The hope is that as well as being a beautiful and thematic visual layer to the play, the sketches could also be used to corroborate a ‘mystery’ in the story.
I am getting in touch with you because I was wondering if one of your students might be suited to this opportunity? As a 25-year-old creative, all of my success thus far has been from when people in the industry have actively sought out new talent / given me a chance – I would like to offer a similar opportunity to a talented young artist from my hometown.
If you do think one of your students would fit the bill, please let me know. We would first get them to film themselves responding to a video of the first 5 minutes of the play. Then, if we think they are what we’re looking for, we’d pay for them to go down to London for a rehearsal with the cast. Following this, they would be part of 2-3 performances at a prestigious Manchester theatre, with the possibility of further performances around the country.
Thank you so much for your time and all the very best
