Starter

Our Starter programme offers eight funded residencies of £2,500 to help artists develop their skills, networks, and explore a new idea for a piece of theatre.

This year’s Starter Artists are Claire Willoughby, David Hunter, Niroshini Thambar, Monika Smekot, Mhairi Allan, Alyson Woodhouse, Michelle Rolfe & Tim Barrow, Beldina Odenyo and Seif Abdel Salaam. Their ideas include using dance to explore facing our fears around death, integrating BSL and audio description into performance in a way that appeals to both disabled and non-disabled audiences, tackling taboos with young people using cabaret and so much more.
