Theater Internship (Norway) June-Aug
Posted June 10, 2012
Call for submissions: Internship opportunity
International Theater Lab is seeking committed enthusiastic individuals to join our team for a full-time summer internship at our Theater Center in Bjørke, Norway. The interns will be exposed to intensive theater training and creation and will share duties that include marketing, administration, community outreach, and housekeeping.
The applicants must have good written and oral communication skills in English. Some background in performing, communications, marketing, and/or graphic design is an advantage. We appreciate creative initiative, drive, an open mind, a sense of humor, and the desire to take on the challenges of rural life in our beautiful, but remote location.
We look forward to hearing from you!
The duration of the internship will be three months or less, with a minimum of one month, between June and August 2012.
International Theater Center
We accept rolling applications for as long as spaces are available. Please fill out and submit the online application form on internationaltheatrelab.org/Internships-2012
Internships are to be viewed as a training opportunity and are unpaid. However, we cover accommodation and meals for the selected applicants. Travel expenses remain the responsibility of the intern.
Note from the JuggleNYC Editors: Behind the scenes look at CircusNYC's selection process.
We wrote: "Thank you for letting CircusNYC know about your upcoming internship program. We are happy to publish free listings for activities of potential interest to the local circus community, but this item appears to be for a traditional theater internship. Please let me know if the program includes a significant circus element and if so in what form, in which case we'll be happy to run a listing for you."
He responded (in part): "We believe that the Internship program could provide a valuable mentorship to anyone with an interest in performing arts. I wouldn't say that it includes 'a significant circus element' any more than it includes 'a traditional theatre' element indeed; I would rather say that it is focused on deleloping acting and entrepreneurial skills, which are qualities for every performer."
Good enough for us!
