Developing the next generation of theatre makers
Our Emerging Perspectives programme provides a range of opportunities for theatre makers at all levels living and working in the East Midlands, each focused on sharing and sharpening skills and working practises.

Emerging Artists
Our project activities range from working with and supporting emerging East Midlands artists, to uncovering stories from the heart of communities where voices are not always heard. Current projects include Boston Stories and #Mansfield as part of a national collaboration with Headlong.

Associates

We offer targeted support to an East Midlands based company and artist on a fixed term basis, in areas of artistic and dramaturgical development, business planning and fundraising, including practical advice on touring work. Each mentoring programme is outcome driven and tailored to suit the individual needs of the company/artist. 

Masterclasses
We invite major figures from the theatre and arts industry as part of a wider Artist Development programme to lead targeted sessions. This provides opportunities for both practising and emerging East Midlands theatre-makers to work in a detailed, practical way accessing a range of ground-breaking artists and companies.

Writers, Directors, Artists and Companies

We invest in new writing and production through practical project activity. Open Pitch s a biennial opportunity to receive support to tour a new rural touring production. Three pitches will receive 3 days development support and the selected pitch will be awarded a commission.  

Unsolicited Scripts
We very rarely have the means to produce unsolicited new plays. If you wish to discuss a creative idea  please make contact with our Artistic Director, Jack McNamara, with an introductory email, including a short example of your work to info@newperspectives.co.uk.

New Perspectives is an East Midlands based national touring theatre company, with a specialty in creating dynamic performances for rural audiences. We make ambitious and original theatre, focusing on new writing, adaptations and revivals, which we present in community settings and venues nationally and internationally. We provide career defining training and mentoring opportunities for emerging regional talent and manage the rural touring scheme Northants Touring Arts .

One of the many things we do is to turn village halls into professional theatre spaces.
