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.
In 2022 we will support a group of 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.
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.
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, Angharad Jones, with an introductory email, including a short example of your work to email@example.com.
New Perspectives is the East Midlands’ touring theatre company. Founded in 1973, we champion new writing, under-represented voices and powerful stories, touring world-class theatre into the heart of communities – reaching rural audiences where they live.
We believe that all people, whatever their age, circumstance or identity, have the right to access practice and inspire theatre and that all places can be sites of exciting cultural exchange.
