This spring we start a residency programme in Luton.

Following our successful immersive theatre show “The Emperors lost Gems” in 2017 – where we took over the High Street and introduced an inter generational audience to the Mughal court of Emperor Akbar, NUTKHUT returns to Bury Park in Luton.

During the year long residency we will begin by listening to and absorbing, the stories, the history and the hopes of the people who make this corner of Luton unique. This inter generational project will culminate into a public performance.

Watch this space.

Make Visible

We’ve teamed up with Tyne and Wear Archives & Museums (TWAM) and Newcastle Mela and started to document and preserve the development of this major cultural festival in the North East.

Through verbatim theatre, interviews, digital and virtual capture, we are helping tell the stories of the many volunteers, artists and audiences that have been instrumental in shaping the Newcastle Mela over the past 25 years.

‘Make Visible’ is a strand of Nutkhut’s work which encourages the archiving of performance from diverse communities, with partner institutions. The key objective is to ensure the ‘narrative’ is preserved, accessible and to make the material available as a learning resource to people from all backgrounds.
