Chelsea Theatre and Theatre of Europe in Rep

Chelsea Theatre and Theatre of Europe have been granted Arts Council England funding to pilot a year of adventurous work from the continent in repertory. We are piloting a more sustainable way of working for Chelsea Theatre and for other theatres in the UK to enable a longer lasting legacy for international directors to work outside the Festival circuit and within mainstream British theatres.
 The Season Premieres
14 July 2016 – A DOLL’S HOUSE by Fix&Foxy
Award-winning Danish theatre company Fix&Foxy will work with actors Cassie Raine, Jamie Zubairi and Ben Samuels to stage a unique production of Ibsen’s A DOLL’S HOUSE with real participants in homes around the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Fix&Foxy innovate with pop culture, blockbusters, media and kitsch to make playful and poetic theatre that deals with modern societal taboos. Recent projects include: Pretty Woman A/S, a reenactment of the Hollywood movie, starring real life prostitutes. This project is support by the Danish Arts Foundation and InTRANSIT Festival.
1 August 2016 – REMOTE LONDON by Rimini Protokoll
Acclaimed Swiss/German company Rimini Protokoll will create a unique trail through London for 30 to 50 people at a time. People who have never met before will come together, wearing radio headphones, to explore the city in an entirely new way. A computer-generated voice in the headphones will direct the movement of the group. The project is in partnership with the Royal National Theatre, LIFT, Milton Keynes International Festival and InTRANSIT Festival and supported by Goethe Institut, Pro Helvetia and the Swiss Culture Fund UK.
April 2017 – The Teaching Crisis (working title) by Kinoteater
Working with deputy head teacher Tim Paramour, ‘disruptive’ Estonian theatre collective Kinoteater, will sensitively create a piece about teaching and teachers in the UK. Recent projects include: Make My Wife Disappear, a play about the life of a magician performed by well known magicians in Estonia. This project is supported by the Estonian Ministry for Culture and Endowment Fund.
 Following their premieres each piece will continue to run at spaced out intervals over 2016 and 2017.
