The second half of the contract will be a development phase of the upcoming Zuppa show, This is Nowhere — an innovative, large-scale public performance with support from major public and private partners. In collaboration with members of the creative team and under the guidance of the production’s director, the apprentice will participate in performance simulations and development of the show. This will involve trial and error and creative problem solving.
