Spotlight in Edinburgh
This year Spotlight will be at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival from the 5th to the 21st of August, seeing members shows and running events. If you have a show you would like us to come and see, or to chat to one of the team, please email us at [email protected]
Join us on 14th August to flex those auditioning muscles and play at Edinburgh Fringe Festival! We’re joining together with the National Youth Theatre to host a workshop, ideal for all 16-25 year old performers looking to improve their audition technique. It will give you the chance to hone your audition skills, offer guidance on choosing the right speech for you, gain confidence and play with a group of different, new and exciting people. The workshop will be followed by a short Q&A with Spotlight and the NYT.
As part of ArtsMinds programme, equity will be creating a 'Sanctuary' which will be an opportunity to get away from the madding crowd to a calm, completely quiet space where you can just be for a while before getting back out there. The Sanctuary provides you with a bit of peace in a comfortable environment. There will also be a neck and shoulder massage therapist. This will be held at the Fringe Central, no need to book, just pop in.
Join us for a panel Q&A session with Casting Director's Simone Pereira Hind, and Orla O'Connor, and Agent Paul Harper. They’ll discuss their work processes, shed light on the industry in Scotland, and answer all the questions you have! The session will be followed by a drinks reception.
