SHAKESPEARE’S GLOBE INTERNATIONAL ACTORS’ FElLOWSHIP
The IAF is a professional development opportunity for actors from around the world, with experience in performing Shakespeare and classical theatre, who have a desire to share their love and knowledge of Shakespeare with fellow actors from other cultures. The Globe Theatre has always been a vibrant international meeting place. Its 2012 Globe to Globe Festival welcomed 37 international companies to present all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays each in a different language; it has grown the Globe’s international family around the world and reinforced our appetite to learn from each other by sharing culturally diverse approaches when performing Shakespeare in the ‘Wooden O’. The 2013 Fellowship programme will be fuelled by this desire and give participants the opportunity to share their own cultural access to Shakespeare.
The 2013 Fellowship will be a full-time three-week course and conclude with a showcase performance to an invited audience on the Globe stage. All participants should be keen to work as part of an international company and relish the opportunity to explore the architecture, work with the Globe’s key practitioners and understand how Shakespeare lives in other cultures. Past participants have not only enjoyed the technical apprenticeship but the chance to live, work and play in London with peers from all across the world.
Previous Shakespeare’s Globe International Artistic Fellows from New Zealand are: Stephen Lovatt, Peter Hambleton, Jude Gibson, Robyn Malcolm, Jonathon Hendry, Simon Ferry, Tandi Wright, Rawiri Paratene, Kirsty Hamilton, Sylvia Rands, Paolo Rotondo, Carmel McGlone and Maaka Pohatu.
