ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
The Fellowship Programme is a year-long leadership development programme for mid-career theatre practitioners, who may or may not have engaged with puppetry previously, but have a keen interest in deepening their understanding about the craft of puppetry.
The Fellow will be given a wholistic, hands-on experience within the annual programming of The Finger Players (TFP). They will be paid a project fee through various shadowing, facilitating, and assisting opportunities:
To attend TFP Masterclasses
To shadow a TFP Main Season Production
To assist in a TFP Community Production
To assist in various puppetry-related workshops
We respect every applicant’s respective creative desires, and are also open to sharing our programming with the selected applicant, to plot her/his Fellowship journey together.
