'The Rex Cramphorn Theatre Scholarship is offered biennially by the NSW Government to assist a professional theatre artist to further develop their career. The scholarship commemorates one of the most important theatre practitioners to emerge from the renaissance of Australian theatre in the 1960s and 1970s. The work of Rex Cramphorn (1941-1991) ranged from experimental to the classical, and was especially marked by his total commitment to the idea of artists working together, sharing and developing skills. Applicants will have completed a body of work that suggests an inquiring mind and an original theatrical voice, and should be able to demonstrate how the proposed program would assist them to develop a vision for future theatre practice.'
