Brief Course Overview
Founded in the principles of ensemble and a simple belief in learning through the process of ‘doing,’ we train our actors for the modern world of professional performance.
Training for 40 hours a week, 11 months of the year our Two-Year Rep delivers the most diverse and intensive training imaginable for the actor. Fundamentally three years training in two, the intensive course incorporates a month in Italy in the first year and a similar period of time at the Edinburgh Fringe in year two of the course. The Two-Year Rep offers a toolkit of experiences and opportunities unparalleled in contemporary training. Responding to the changing landscape of the performance industry and the need for new avenues into the profession, Fourth Monkey have created a training programme that not only trains the actor but also empowers them to develop work of their own. Uniquely, we also employ the actors upon completion of their training to deliver our professional work nationally and internationally with our professional touring Ensemble.
