‘Seeing theatre makers grow always interested me more than my own aspirations’Fourth Monkey in The Stage
“I’d like to see genuinely inclusive and accessible representation within the arts. As the only UK school co-founded by a woman of colour [director of training Charleen Qwaye], we are striving to be part of the solution. Our training is built through Charleen’s lens – she understands exclusion in all its myriad forms.
Our training is defined by this awareness, which benefits everyone who engages with it, no matter their background. But, there is a long way to go and we as an industry are working from a profound deficit. It starts with who we audition, who we define as artists and the voices we are invested in hearing – that requires a seismic shift in the status quo.”
