Talawa seeking applications for four-week TYPT Programme (Black British artists, age 18-25)

TYPT is Talawa’s flagship programme for emerging theatre makers. Every summer a team of emerging artists aged 18-25 works with established artists to create a brand new show.

At TYPT artists develop their practice, test ideas and produce a brand new piece of theatre in just 4 weeks.

TYPT:17 runs from Monday 7 August – Saturday 2 September 2017.

What you get:  Whether you are a performer, stage manager, designer or technician, every element of the TYPT process will be open to you from initial production meetings to script development sessions; from meetings with graphic designers to the get-out.

I came to TYPT looking for the empowerment to develop as a performer and writer, and I certainly succeeded, we all did. Talawa’s enduring faith in developing new artists is remarkable and for my own journey TYPT was the biggest part of that.” 

-Michaela Coel, Writer and Performer, BAFTA Winner ‘Best Female Performance in a Comedy Programme’ and ‘Breakthrough Talent’ 2016
