Wise Children’s Summer Camp

Wise Children’s Summer Camp
in association with The North Wall 

Monday 25 – Friday 29 July 10am – 6pm
Venue: The North Wall, Oxford
Cost: Free! Assistance with accommodation, travel and subsistence is available

Perfectly observed performance, soul melting music and flawless ensemble work are the hallmarks of a Wise Children show. We’re looking for brilliant performers interested in finding out how we do it!

Led by award-winning director Emma Rice and a team of her closest collaborators, the Summer Camp is a week-long performing course which will include acting, singing, dancing, puppetry, and more, as you learn to create playful, ensemble, music-filled theatre in the style of Wise Children.

Who Should Apply

We want to hear from performers serious about working in the industry. No professional training is needed, but all students will need to be able to perform, sing and move confidently – so we’re expecting most applicants will have at least some previous performing experience.

We are committed to equal opportunities and actively encourage applications from those currently under-represented in the industry. To ensure our training is as accessible as possible, support with travel, accommodation and subsistence is available.

If you have any questions about the course, please contact helen@wisechildren.co.uk

  •  An introduction: tell us a bit about you and why you want to do this course
  • A piece that incorporates all your skills: this could include acting, singing, movement, an instrument, standing on your head, a second language… whatever you could bring to an ensemble.

Applications will close at 5pm on Monday 13 June and all applicants will receive a response by Monday 27 June.
