Our summer was a mixed bag of planned and unplanned events…
Amidst project planning and pre-production work, we managed to squeeze in some last minute time away to see loved ones for the first time in two years – and dip our toes in the ocean.
It certainly lifted our spirits and gave us a much needed boost of energy. 🚀
After an exhausting funding-bid-writing marathon, the work really paid off and we did celebratory dances by the seaside and remotely raised our glasses together to some much needed good news!
So, we’re super excited that the time has come to share our projects with you!
Having had to postpone it for a full year, this November we’re finally bringing to you the English language premiere of the amazing play Where I Call Home (Gens du Pays) by acclaimed Québécois playwright Marc-Antoine Cyr, translated by Charis Ainslie (two of our all-time favourite people!).
We’re making all the arrangements to minimise potential anxieties and make everyone feel safe and able to enjoy the performance, after all, there’s nothing like watching live theatre together!
Tickets will be released next week, so stay tuned.
Thanks to the support of our funders, we’re thrilled to be launching a series of activities for young Hackney theatre-makers that will run over the next few months and into the new year, introducing and connecting us to tomorrow’s inspiring creatives. Yeah!
First up and in connection to the production will be a free workshop programme for young people in Hackney led by our beloved friend, director, playwright, dramaturg and more, Almiro Andrade. ❤️
