Supporting and developing the next generation of theatre makers
We provide 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. 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.

New Associates
New for 2019, we will support a group of up to six new creative practitioners from the East Midlands region to gain a close insight into the workings of the company, feed in ideas and benefit from a range of company expertise to support the development of their own work. New Associates will act as ambassadors for New Perspectives, help to spread the word about our productions and programmes, and help shape our future. 

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 activities. Open Pitch is 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.

 

 

Welcome

New Perspectives is an East Midlands' based touring theatre company, specialising in bringing new work to rural and community audiences. Through an annual programme of original adaptations, rare revivals and new writing, we aim to bring live theatre that is diverse, affordable and accessible into the heart of wide-ranging communities, as well as to regional, national and international venues.  
Our productions are testament to the fact that rural theatre is as relevant, challenging and vital as theatre made for any other environment. Our participatory projects, career defining training and mentoring opportunities for emerging regional talent and rural touring scheme Northants Touring Arts makes tangible difference to people where they live.
