Support programme for young directors

The Cervantes Theatre is launching its first programme dedicated to support young directors. We will select 6 emerging directors (between 18 and 25 years old) and will offer them the opportunity to develop their craft with a package of a week of free rehearsal space at the theatre, a mentorship programme and a fee.

The applicants will have to submit their CV and motivation letter to by the 1st of December and the directors selected for the first round of interviews will have to choose between one of the 10 Spanish and Latin American plays in translation proposed by the Cervantes Theatre. The successful candidates will get to work on their chosen play for a week between February and March with up to 4 more artists. They will have the chance to either work on scenes, work in 2 languages (English and Spanish) or devise an adaptation or a version of the play.

“ We can not afford to lose our youngest generation of artists. The future may seem dark and uncertain for many of them but we are here to offer our support and guidance, giving them voice and space within an international creative context and telling them that they are valued and needed”.

Paula Paz, cofounder and Associate Artistic Director of the Cervantes Theatre.
