Student residency at The Abbey Theatre Dublin

Well done and Congrats to The Abbey Theatre, Dublin, in its support for students of design for performance through its Yeats Design Residency “Designs on the Future” Nurturing Irish Set Designers.

The Yeats Design Residency of a six month internship at the Abbey Theatre is a wonderful opportunity for the successful student to learn how world-class theatre directors, designers, technical and production staff at the Abbey Theatre collaborate. It affords them the opportunity to acquire at first hand an understanding of how set design is incorporated into the process of creating a production.

 Furthermore, during the Yeats Design Residency, staff in the Abbey Theatre’s production department participate in student assessments and in the final year presentation process.

Is the competition for an internship residency restricted to students of design for performance at Sligo Institute of Technology or is it open to all final year students of design for performance in other third level institutions?
