The Clare

Routes for Theatre Makers
Emerged, Mid-Career, And Then What?

In partnership with Stage Directors UK

YV:IDemystify is a series of free events for theatre makers to promote the sharing of best practice models, help open up new pathways in the industry and aid people in navigating their creative journeys.

This event is aimed at mid-career director-theatre makers who have had their first couple of shows (self-) produced and wish to progress to the next stage in their career. Whereas an earlier generation of theatre practitioners may have relied on an infrastructure of associate and artistic directorships as next steps in their pathway in the industry, such opportunities and positions are increasingly hard to find. Where can mid-career makers, too experienced for emerging talent schemes but not yet on the next tier, turn to? What examples of innovative pathways may offer inspiration to those feeling they’re stuck in the middle?            

Tickets are FREE, but must be booked in advance. A maximum of 2 tickets can be reserved per person.

 

'YV:IDemystify started with a question: how do we create a more transparent theatre sector? A sector that is more supportive of our creators and makers? More honest about the cost – and that’s not just the financial cost – of creative work. I am delighted that an influential collective of industry partners and speakers will join us to shape this series, as it is through conversation that we can truly begin to demystify what is so often an opaque industry.' - Kwame Kwei-Armah, Young Vic Artistic Director
