With the support of the Boris Karloff Foundation, we continued the Trainee Assistant Director Program, giving emerging directors the opportunity to shadow an assistant director on a Young Vic show. The trainees observed the rehearsals, previews and run of a Young Vic production, and learnt about the role of an assistant director, the etiquette of the rehearsal room, the relationships between the creative team, the craft of the actor and the technical rehearsal period. They gained first-hand experience in a supported environment working alongside an assistant director on a professional production.
The roles were targeted at emerging directors aged under 26, and who hadn't studied to degree level or at drama school.
Supported by the Boris Karloff Charitable Foundation.
This opportunity is advertised through the Genesis Directors Network.
