THE PLACE I CALL HOME is a brand-new programme connecting international writers to create new work together, in isolation, across borders.
Presented in collaboration with theatres across Europe, two writers will be paired up to co-author a new bilingual play about the place they call home. These plays will then be realised with digital artist collaborators, performed by British Drama school students who have had projects postponed and shared across digital platforms.
Partnerships so far:
Theatre Dortmund (Germany), with German playwright Calle Fuhr (INTO THE STARS) and UK playwright Dipo Baruwa-Etti (AN UNFINISHED MAN)
Theatr Ludowy (Krakow) with Polish playwright Magda Węgrzyn and UK writer Travis Alabanza (BURGERZ)
Elsinor Theatre Milan (Italy) with Italian playwright Giuditta Mingucci (I WISH) from and UK playwright Rosie MacPherson (WHERE WE BEGAN), in partnership with Yorkshire-based company Stand and Be Counted (the UK’s first Theatre Company of Sanctuary)
