Emerging Perspectives

Developing the next generation of theatre makers and performers
The Emerging Perspectives programme provides a range of opportunities for emerging theatre makers living and working in the East Midlands. We specifically aim to bridge the gap between training and working in the industry, by helping people early in their theatre careers to become skilled and self supporting artists.

We offer a series of masterclasses with theatre professionals, a year-long training programme for performers, designers, composers, stage managers and writers under the Emerging Perspectives Company, a full length Long Play writing competition, as well as professional mentoring for emerging companies and artists.



Welcome

New Perspectives is an East Midlands based national touring theatre company, specialising 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 . 

EXCITE, CHALLENGE & ENGAGE
One of the many things we do is to turn village halls into professional theatre spaces.
