In Good Company, the flagship creative, professional and business development programme for theatre makers in the Midlands, is offering two fantastic opportunities to theatre makers to be a part of Departure Lounge, Derby Theatre’s annual summer festival of ground-breaking work, and fresh and exciting performance in the heart of the country.
Departure Lounge is a nationally recognised and highly acclaimed festival that IGC and the Theatre will produce and present for a 8th year in 2020, that will once again consist of a bumper line-up of shows, Edinburgh previews, a panel discussion with leading industry professionals, workshops, talks plus much more.
In Good Company invites artists and companies from the Midlands area to send tour packs for consideration, to showcase their work at the Festival before they head off to Edinburgh. IGC are committed to increasing opportunities and support for all and this being reﬂected on their stages, we recognise the need within ‘all’ to be diverse and representative of the world we live in today. ‘All’ includes (but is not exclusively): people of colour, people from non-British backgrounds, lesbian, bisexual, gay and queer people, gender diverse people, people from working class backgrounds, Deaf and disabled people (including hidden disabilities).
Artists accepted will be spending a week at The HopBarn to create and explore the work as discussed in their proposal. For more details, link.
