Open Pitch

 Attracting new voices to the rural world 
Writers, directors, artists and companies were invited to submit a one page pitch for a new piece of theatre or performance for rural audiences in a brand new opportunity for theatre-makers based in or from the Midlands for development in the East Midlands region.
We requested adventurous and exciting ideas to become part of our signature programme from ANY of the following areas:

-new play or adaptation
-devised performance
-multidisciplinary cross-artform 
-site-specific or community performance

In addition to full-length performance pieces suitable for rural touring, we welcomed pitches for site-specific events designed for rural locations. We invited artists and companies to think about the creative possibilities of the rural environment and present something both inventive and achievable. Proposals were selected on the quality of ideas rather than the previous experience of the applicants.
 
Shortlisted applicants were invited to pitch their idea at New Perspectives. Three pitches received 3 days development support and collaborators Hugh Dichmont and Nadim Choudry have been awarded seed funding to develop their project over a six month period.
 
Information on Open Pitch 2020 will be announced here shortly; an initative kindly supported by The Garrick Chartiable Trust.

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.
