Theatre Re's 2023 apprentices
Amy is an actor, performer and costume designer from East London. She studied Drama and English Literature at The University of Greenwich and was awarded the BBC Radio Drama Norman Beaton Fellowship in 2019 (runner-up prize). Her work as a performer includes 300 el x 50 el x 30 el by FC Bergman (Barbican) and A Quiet Life (BBC Radio 3, BBC2 See Hear, Riverside Studios, Greenbelt Festival). She has designed costumes for Isaac (feature film dir. by Tariq Sayed) Elephant’s Graveyard (Greenwich Theatre) and holds a Level 3 in British Sign Language accredited by Signature.
Adeola is a London-based actor, director, and interdisciplinary artist. She trained with the National Youth Theatre (NYT) REP company and has since performed in numerous theatre productions including the titular role of Antigone at Mercury Theatre Colchester, the RSC’s Much Ado About Nothing, and The Caucasian Chalk Circle at Rose Theatre Kingston. She was commissioned by the NYT to write and direct a piece for COP26 in Glasgow, called ‘I Don’t Care’, looking at the apathy surrounding climate change action. Original vocal music playing with rhythm and harmony is a large part of her practice, and she is currently developing a show about beauty. Originally commissioned as a one-woman-one-act play, she hopes to explore working with a chorus of voices in increasingly playful ways.
