Trinacria Theatre Company Management Internship Info Session
Your Sicilian Adventure Awaits  Trinacria Theatre Company  Develop your Italian language skills while learning about company management, community engagement, intercultural exchange, and so much more... all with a group of international artists in a small, rural Sicilian village.  We are particularly keen to provide this opportunity for BIPOC students and others belonging to groups that have been historically underrepresented in both Italian studies and the performing arts industry.  www.trinacriatheatre.com/residency  Virtual Info Session this fall!  Meet with Mariagrazia La Fauci (Trinacria Artistic Director) & Iyvon Edebiri (The Parsnip Ship Artistic Director, IIM in Italian Studies Brandeis '13) to learn more about the program. Dates & times TBA!  This is exciting collaboration between Brandeis University’s Interdepartmental Program in Italian Studies and Trinacria Theatre Company.  Goal: To help build the next generation of company managers, while offering an opportunity for Brandeis Italian students to experience Trinacria’s programs in Sicily. Trinacria Company Management Interns will develop a skill set that is applicable across a wide range of careers—organization, administration, management, hospitality, human resources, crisis or conflict resolution, communication, and more. They will have the opportunity to engage meaningfully with both professional international artists and also community-level social justice work and immerse themselves in Sicilian culture. And, by providing this opportunity to BIPOC Italian learners and company managers-in-training, we will be working towards increasing accessible opportunities for BIPOC both in the professional theatre industry and in the community of Italian speakers in America. With more routes available into the professional arts industry, we will see a more accessible playing field and a greater diversity across the industry, not just on stage.  The internship will equip one or two Brandeis students with the necessary skills for company management, a role they will then fill during the 2022 Trinacria Open Creative Residency and Trinacria Arts Festival.
