We’re in the second year of our three-year residency project in two very different areas of London: Tottenham and Pimlico.
THE STORY SO FAR
In 2015 we we brought the Royal Court from Sloane Square to Tottenham. Working with the local community we…
- Played to over 500 local audience members
- Worked with 14 Tottenham-based organisations
- Held 20 public performances in eight different locations across the community, including the sold-out Liberian Girl by Diana Nneka Atuona at the Bernie Grant Arts Centre
- Worked with eight different community casts, three of which were made up of under 18s
- Brought performances by six world-class artists to the local area
- Had 89 meetings with local people and organisations
- Led 55 workshops for schools, youth groups, organisations and local residents
- Engaged with 26 Tottenham-based artists
- Held a Summer Festival of performances throughout August 2015
Continuing on from Year 1, we worked with all the brilliant people of Tottenham we already built relationships with and welcomed in new friends to.
- We hosted a three week summer festival, with performances or workshops every day in, on and around our pop up venue “the shipping container”.
- We hosted six Sunday performances in Markfield park revolving around the Jewish community of south Tottenham
- We produced three nights of Platform Tottenham – exploring new writing, performing and musical talent from Tottenham. The third performance was held at the Royal Court Theatre.
Tottenham is changing. We want to hear your voice. Come and tell us what you would like to happen in your community.
We want to work in partnership with the people of Tottenham, schools, community groups and business.
We’ll host free workshops, develop new work, support local artists and bring Royal Court shows right here to your doorstep. At the end of our three year residency, we hope to put on an arts festival and stage a piece of work created by you.
