STEP UP Creatives… The Next Generation

On Saturday 29th September, New Perspectives HQ played host to the first meeting of the 2012-2013 STEP UP Creatives training ensemble. It hardly seems like a week has gone by since the excitement and success of the 2011-2012 ensemble’s mini-tour of Goldfish in June, but in actual fact the summer months have seen a flurry of applications, auditions and interviews for the next generation of theatre-makers to be supported by the STEP UP scheme.

Last year was a great success – the first year of our new STEP UP scheme saw us working with an ensemble of 13 emerging creatives from the region; offering 4 aspiring arts marketers and managers office based placements mentoring up and coming Nottingham-based theatre company The Gramophones as they go from strength to strength; and touring a production showcasing the work of five exciting new talented writers from the East Midlands.

The new training ensemble are a diverse and talented bunch which includes actors, directors, producers, designers, stage managers and even a composer! Like last year, they will be writing blog posts themselves to keep you up to date on who they are and what they’re up to, so keep your eyes peeled…
