The Genesis Foundation is a UK-based charity established in 2001 by John Studzinski. It nurtures and develops artistic excellence in collaboration with leading organisations working in the fields of music, theatre, dance and the visual arts by funding specially created programmes that support young directors, playwrights and choral singers. The Foundation’s established partners are: the Royal Court, The Sixteen, Welsh National Opera and the Young Vic.
In addition, the Genesis Foundation supports graduate and post-graduate training programmes at LAMDA and the Royal College of Art. Its focus is on mentoring and development work rather than productions.
Please note that the Genesis Foundation achieves its aims by working with established partner organisations, and is unable to give grants to individuals. Any unsolicited proposals it receives will therefore go unacknowledged.
Genesis Sixteen, the unique partnership between the Genesis Foundation and The Sixteen, announces its third annual programme for vocal training specific to future professionals working in consorts and choirs.
The Genesis Foundation is delighted to announce that the Young Vic has appointed theatre director Natalie Abrahami as its new Genesis Fellow and Associate Director.
Following its two sell-out runs, the Young Vic’s award-winning production of Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House will transfer to the West End. The production, directed by Carrie Cracknell will run from 8 August to 26 October at the Duke of York’s Theatre.More...
