Welcome (2019)

We want to bring theatre to people who may never have experienced it before – by bringing it into their homes.
For free.

We’re back with a big version of WELCOME.

 

Our pilot in Higham Hill in 2018 was a great success, and now for Waltham Forest’s Borough of Culture year, we want to go EVEN BIGGER.

 

We’re planning to match up Waltham Forest theatre makers with residents in five Waltham Forest wards:

 

  • Cann Hall
  • Leyton
  • Grove Green
  • Hale End & Highams Park

The artists will meet their residents, then have one week to make a brand-new piece of theatre, inspired by their resident. They’ll then perform it in the resident’s home, for an audience of whoever the resident wants to invite.

We’re also planning to make a short film, documenting the whole project.

 

If you live in one of the above wards, get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!

 

Likewise, if you’re a theatre maker living or working in Waltham Forest, give us a shout!
