The Work Room Visits, Perth Theatre
We are organising two venue visits for TWR members in the coming months. These are an opportunity for you to meet key staff in venues and to hear more about their approach to programming and wider dance engagement. These are also scheduled with performances and events involving work room members, to share practice across our network.
Perth Theatre, 9th March – meet at Queen St Station at 13.30pm (for the 13.41 train) or at Perth Theatre at 3pm (Edinburgh train 13.36 arrive 14.50)
Perth Theatre re-opened in November following a £16.6 million re-development. The transformation has restored the Edwardian auditorium and created a new 200 seat studio theatre as well as increased workshop spaces for creative learning and community projects. The opening season includes dance performances from Curious Seed and Joan Cleville Dance.
Our visit will include a tour of the new venue, and opportunity to meet staff including Pete Royston (Dance Development Officer), Lu Kemp (Artistic Director), Anna Beedham (Producer & Programme Manager) and Lou Brodie (Director of Perth – WOW Festival)
There will be time for some refreshments before joining a panel discussion exploring integrating text with dance with playwright Ella Hickson and choreographer Joan Cleville.
TWR will organise tickets and cover travel costs, you will be responsible for buying your own refreshments
