Old Vic’s Kevin Spacey offers free master class
The Artistic Director has once again teamed up with IdeasTap to bring another creative opportunity for the emerging artist.
Kevin Spacey is to give a free acting class to talented young actors with the help of online creative network IdeasTap.
The renowned Hollywood actor, who received a CBE last week from Prince Charles for his services to drama, will work with twenty of the UK’s most talented young actors on a one-minute monologue. Each will receive expert feedback to make improvements.
After working with Spacey, the talented actors will be given the opportunity to shoot a professional showreel of them performing the speech.
In the current climate of arts cuts, supporting young emerging artists is more important than ever
IdeasTap are an online creative network and funding body for emerging artists. This, their latest project with Spacey and Old Vic New Voices, is a welcome opportunity in the face of government cuts. “In the current climate of arts cuts, supporting young emerging artists is more important than ever,” says Spacey.
“Old Vic New Voices and IdeasTap have teamed up to do just that, providing opportunities for exciting talent to develop and a vehicle for young performers to launch themselves into the professional world. I’m thrilled to be taking part in The Class.”
IdeasTap Chairman, Peter De Haan, is proud to be investing in the next generation of creative talent. “Our message to young talent at this challenging time is that your creative ingenuity and talent are vital for the future of our creative industries.
Our investment in emerging creative talent will reap real benefits across society
“We’re delighted to be working with experts like Kevin and Old Vic New Voices to deliver life-changing opportunities for emerging artists. We believe that, with financial support and expert advice, our investment in emerging creative talent will reap real benefits across society.
Applications for Kevin Spacey: The Class is open to 16 – 25 year olds and closes at 5pm on Wednesday 17 November 2010. To win an audience with Spacey, applicants must sign up to the IdeasTap website and upload a film of themselves performing a one-minute monologue. Kevin Spacey: The Class will take place on Friday 26 November at the IdeasTap HQ in London.
