producing & commissioning
We work with a number of companies and individual artists in the production of their work, sometimes as a collaboration or in co-production. This work can range from a commission to full production and management of a new piece.
Each year we book tours for a number of projects ranging from the work of our associate companies to that of international partners.
residencies and R&D
We invest in the research and development of new ideas. Typically this will involve us providing space for rehearsal, occasionally money and sometimes accommodation and travel costs.
We are conscious that investment for artists is often linked to specific artistic output and yet sometimes what an artist actually needs is time and space in order to plan, respond and develop the best possible ideas. Our fellowship awards buy artists time to do just that.
These companies benefit from financial and producing support, coaching and training, rehearsal and office space.
A number of companies are based at Farnham Maltings working from a shared theatre office. They have access to rehearsal space, our advice and networks.
We will arrange an initial meeting with any regionally-based company or artist to hear ideas and ambitions and offer advice on touring, production and funding applications. If you would like to meet for an initial conversation please contact our producer, Laura, firstname.lastname@example.org, with a short introduction of who you are and the work that you make.
We provide mentoring and coaching, rehearsal space, wardrobe and a range of financial services and advice for new theatre companies.
