Taking Part

We love sharing the creative process with new people

as an integral part of our production process and in workshops, residencies and targetted participation projects. Every year we work with hundreds of people, young and old, some who call themselves artists and some who don't.

Our participation programme has the aim of being accessible to anyone wanting to engage. Our work ranges from one to one therapeutic work with some of the most at risk young people in the UK, to performance opportunities for young professionals, and everything in between.

 

We support the development of younger artists, providing worthwhile opportunities including internships, placements and volunteer positions working within our professional teams. We run a mentoring scheme for emerging theatre companies offering training, advice and practical support.

 

Have a look at the various strands of work we do:

 

>>Targeted projects

 

>>Residencies

 

>>Schools and Colleges

 

>>Dramatherapy

 

>>Talent Development

 

If you or any of the young people you work with would benefit from any of our strands of participation, please don't hesitate to get in touch - contact our Participation Manager Alex Ramsden with any questions.

Reviewing outdoor theatre: the missing piece of the puzzle?

By KAT JOYCE   This weekend saw us premiering our newest outdoor performance, That Parking Show, at the brilliant Imagine Luton festival. It was a great weekend in a number of ways:  1.      The show, which we've been making for the last three weeks, came together and really seemed to 'land' in front of its first audiences. 2.      Our two new performers, Blayar and Melaina, both made their outdoor debut, nailed their performances, and loved the experience.   3.      Imagine Luton festival, which was brand new last year, has already gained impressive traction and is pulling really big, enthusiastic audiences (and attracting new, unexpected ones) with a fantastic programme of work (thanks Imagine festivals for taking a punt and commissioning us).  4.      The sun shone all weekend. 5.      England won the football 6-1 (our final show gained an extra sound effect half way through with a city-wide live chorus of 'Three Lions' spilling out of various pubs) 6.      An actual proper, renowned dance critic travelled to Luton to review some of the work.      To continue reading click 'Read the whole story' next to the date at the top.
