Welcome to the first edition of the house newsletter for 2015. Beginning this month, we have Chris Dobrowolski’s All Roads Lead to Rome visiting the network, shortly followed by the tour of Arthur’s Dream Boat by Long Nose Puppets.
For venues across the network we’re accepting bookings for the Access Training Days taking place throughout February. Hosted by theatres in Norwich, Cambridge, Reading, Canterbury, Brighton, Harlow, Eastleigh, Oxford and Ipswich, get in touch with Heather to book your place or receive further information.
As a space for sharing and debate, the house website hosts numerous blogs, resources and opportunities. This month’s latest online updates include:
- Civic Artist Residency – CARP 2015
- Theatertreffen 2015 – Theatre Makers wanted (Berlin)
- Helpful advice for touring technicians
- Routes In: a guide to getting new work programmed in the North of England, by Venues North
Artist Nick Hand is creating soundslides of each of our current projects, watch the first of them through our vimeo channel online. You’ll be able to check back in a few months to see how our projects in Folkestone, Reading, Colchester, Leighton Buzzard and Brighton have gone too! Also keep a look out for our upcoming call out for producer placements and other greenhouse opportunities throughout 2015.
Beginning in January, each month we’ll be profiling a professional within the house network to learn more about their work and the ambitions of their venue. This month’s house profile is Sophie Fullerlove, the Director of The Spring Arts & Heritage Centre, who talks more about the organisation’s established book club and how touring professional work throughout their borough is helping develop audiences.
