For each of our projects we consider ways in which we can engage with families and young people beyond the notion of audience; involvement can occur at the creative ‘ideas’ stage, the production phase, the performance and touring stage and in follow-up workshops.
Nutkhut’s show Navrattan – A Quest for the Lost Gems has been designed and created principally for families, schools and young people and will feature shadow puppetry, interactive story-telling, traditional Kathak dance, music and craft workshops.
We have a strong background in working with students, e.g. having worked with a range of production students on Bollywood Steps from Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. We have developed this strand further and are developing a programme with students from other settings whilst continuing to offer placements and work experience to undergraduate students with theatre production backgrounds.
We always take care to ensure that students or apprentices have clear learning goals, plenty of practical experience and are supported through strong relationships to ensure they enjoy a meaningful experience. We celebrate the fact that many placements with us have resulted in students becoming associate artists, a relationship which is mutually sustaining.
We work with a core pool of performers, however this pool is often expanding! If you’re interested, please send over a headshot, CV and showreel to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get in touch when we’re looking.
