Artistic & Administrative Opportunities
Theatre Gargantua’s Artistic Internship Program provides an opportunity for emerging artists to expand their skills and experience through observing and participating in Theatre Gargantua’s creative cycle.
Theatre Gargantua is seeking two emerging artists who are committed to pursuing a career in the performing arts. This paid program is designed to provide an opportunity for emerging artists to expand their skills and experience through observing and participating in Theatre Gargantua’s artistic creation cycle. Specifically, participants will attend all rehearsal and creative meetings while simultaneously assisting in areas of production (set, lighting, costumes, stage management, and director assistance). Through this program, interns are mentored by our professional artists, helping them develop new skills for their future artistic endeavours.
The program will begin in late summer / early fall and continues through performances of premiere of our latest cycle of work in the fall. The bulk of the internship will occur during the rehearsal/pre-production and performances slated between September 4–November 7th. There may also the opportunity to assist with our Sidestream Cycles and summer festival in Welland Ontario.
Successful applicants will have a background in theatre and an interest in multi-disciplinary work and/or the collaborative creation process. Applicants should be prepared to make a commitment to the full length of the project, including attendance at all rehearsals and performances and all creative meetings.
Our new Cycle of Work is called WaterFall which explores our relationship with water as a ubiquitous and life-sustaining force. WaterFall is a visceral exploration of how the politics, mythologies, and science of water converge. https://theatregargantua.ca/productions/mainstage-cycles/waterfall/
