TYPT:13 Sweet Taboo
Talawa Theatre Company’s flagship programme for emerging theatre makers, TYPT, will this year see a company of 14 emerging practitioners work collaboratively with theatre director Mojisola Adebayo, and a professional multi-disciplinary team, to devise an original piece of theatre exploring gender and sexuality.
Over four weeks of intensive rehearsals the emerging and established practitioners will work together to develop their practice, test ideas and explore new ways of working.
Set up in 1995, TYPT provides a unique stepping-stone for emerging theatre makers, including actors, stage managers and designers at the beginning of their careers. Participants’ relationship and development with Talawa does not end with the initial intensive 4-week programme, as the Company continues to offer FREE support to participants as their careers develop.
Talawa Theatre Company is also collaborating with the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, via the TYPT programme, to support a drive to diversify the intake and course content across the drama school; providing workshops on diversity and supporting the newly formed Black and Asian Alumni Network.
Info: TYPT:13 Sweet Taboo is at Embassy Theatre, Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, Eton Avenue, London, NW3 3HY from 15-17 August 2013 at 7.30pm. Book tickets
