Open Pitch

OPEN PITCH


People with a story to tell who want creative collaboration to tell it
 
New Perspectives launched Open Pitch in 2021 as an opportunity for anyone in the East Midlands' region who hadn't the chance or means to follow a creative path in their lives, but had a burning idea that would suit performance or presentation to an audience. We invited people to submit a story from their own life, from their neighbourhood or something they were really passionate about. 
 
We have guided, nurtured and supported the development of four original ideas by Donna Briscoe-Greene, Ann Hill, Bob Sea-Dog and Caroline Beeson Spence, discover more about each Open Pitch project here:

As a company we are interested in people, places, passions and in amplifying unheard voices.

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.
