Old Vic Theatre Makers
Making a career in theatre is harder than ever, but is also more vital than ever.
In 2020, we are transforming our annual Summer School into Old Vic Theatre Makers; a free six-month online programme for 18–25 year olds to develop creative connections and create a toolkit to discuss and make theatre in the midst of our changing society.
This year’s Old Vic Theatre Makers are currently with us working towards a showcase in Jan 2021. You can follow their journey on this page, and find out what they get up to:

OLD VIC THEATRE MAKERS – ONE MINUTE PERFORMANCES
During September’s workshop, our OV Theatre Makers company split into groups and were given one hour to create five one-minute short Zoom performances that were fun, exciting and celebrated the online medium. After a speedy creative devising process, each group performed their pieces live on Zoom, which we captured and are thrilled to share their works-in-progress with you here:
1. ‘Tunnel Vision’ – devised by Camilla, Chantelle, Gabe, Ozioma & Rodrigo
2. ‘Last Bot Standing’ – devised by Eliz, Imani, Katie & Mathew
3. ‘Natural Curiosities’ – devised by Brandon, Keri, Mohammed & Quennie
4. ‘Emotions’ – devised by Alexcia, Anna, Cameron & Lucy
5. ‘Contact’ – devised by Fisola, Kevin, Michael & Nadia
