Emerging Perspectives

 "The point at which an image, or complex of images, ceases to be a 'personal fiction' and acquires a life of its own , a truth bigger than self. An unmistakable development, recognisable among other things for the new ' perspective' it gives to the 'self' that was living with them. A way of seeing and responding to the world around me". Athol Fugard

Developing the Next Generation of Theatre Makers and Performers

Our Emerging Perspectives programme provides a range of opportunities for emerging theatre makers living and working in the East Midlands. We offer a range of opportunities each focussed on bridging the gap between training and working in the industry. Through a series of masterclasses with theatre professionals, a programme for performers, designers, composers, stage managers and writers under the Emerging Perspectives Company, a full length Long Play writing competition, and professional mentoring for emerging companies and artists, we aim to help people early in their careers to become skilled and self-supporting artists.

Workshop activity

We're delighted to offer Shout Out Shakespeare workshop sessions for Nottingham City Council Libraries at Sherwood and Basford Libraries as part of a nationwide Celebrating Shakespeare programme commemorating the 400th anniversary of the bard's death. Pupils from Carrington and Seely Primary Schools got to grips with Macbeth before taking on a soliloquy for themselves! Workshop sessions in Basford will take place in September. For more information on workshops and creative projects please contact sally@newpersepctives.co.uk

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 .

One of the many things we do is to turn village halls into professional theatre spaces.

Thank you to all our kind supporters raising funds to help us to pilot 'Shhh...akespeare!' - an innovative performance and creative workshop using Macbeth to break down barriers to learning for youngsters in disadvantaged areas. We have reached our pledge target but still have funds  to raise. Find out more...
