In May last year I began to put the wheels in motion to create Theatre of Europe – a new theatre in London programming Europe’s most innovating theatre directors in the English language with the best of British theatre talent. Now, with the backing of the European Commission Representation in the UK and EUNIC, Theatre of Europe will be launching fully in September 2014. Each production will be created for different venues and spaces all over London in co-production with established theatre venues. Over the next few months we will be piloting ideas via a series of research and development projects led by four ground-breaking theatre directors from the continent in collaboration with UK based theatre creatives.
It has been an exciting year of preparation and globetrotting! I’ve seen some incredible theatre and met extraordinary artists from all over Europe and I look forward to introducing you to some of these theatre-makers very soon. I will be updating this blog with news and views at every stage along the way too so please look in when you feel like it.
