With applications for this year's Arts Academy still coming in, we hear from a former student and Bruiser Intern, Caitlin.
In a few weeks Bruiser's/Mac summer school and graduate academy giving the opportunity for young people to experience two weeks of intensive professional training in Bruiser's dynamic physical style. I've been a participant of the summer scheme for the past four years, something which I've greatly enjoyed and this year I've had the opportunity to intern with the company over both the level 1 and 2 courses. It's a fantastic opportunity for aspiring actors to build on old skills and learn new ones with Northern Ireland's leading physical theatre company.
Former Summer Schools/Graduate Academy student
From Graduate to Casualty
Our Graduate Academy offers professional development for students who are considering University or Drama School, those already studying, or have graduated.
Practical advice is given on self-employment, audition techniques, working with agents, creating a winning CV and the opportunity of working with other prominent theatre directors / casting agents which very attractive to young adults trying to break into the business. So it is always fantastic when we hear about those students going on to work in the Arts Industry!
Our former Graduate Academy student, Niamh McEnhill, had a great role, Bex Lee, in Casualty recently. Head over to BBC iPlayer to catch it!
"I worked with Bruiser in 2009 on the Graduate Academy and had such a fantastic time with them.
Lisa and Ross taught me how to be a playful, fearless and energetic actor and I've taken that with me since." Niamh McEnhill
