This year’s bursaries also include new partnerships offering Kashish Gaba - the London Performance Studios Cultural Entrepreneur Bursary, Nadia Sewnauth – Dance Base Hip-Hop Dance Artist Traineeship, Anushiye Yarnell – South House Creative Development Residency; as well as Bethany Cooper, the Nicole Kidman Bursary, and Lauren Martin and Claire Powell, Stephanie Arditti Bursaries.
Michael Grandage said, “As we continue to emerge from one of the most challenging periods in our history, the theatre industry is back focusing people’s minds and helping us look to the future with hope. The recipients of this year’s MGCfutures bursaries are at the forefront of that debate, offering imagination, intellect and talent. I’m delighted we are able to award so many individuals the opportunity to hone their craft and develop their career as part of our ongoing bursary scheme which is now in its sixth year.”
