TYP: Taking A Breather
Sep 2019

Following a ★★★★ sell out performance of [Untitled] at the Exeter Phoenix in May, we've made the challenging decision to take a breather from our regular programme of work with our young company members. 

Whilst we were excelling in our engagement and our productions were consistently of an excellent standard, the creative team decided they wanted to take some time to reassess what direction the company should be heading in, how we can become more sustainable, and how we can continue to push our practice to remain innovative leaders in creating original work with young people. 

We're missing our young company desperately but standby the decision to put them and our practice first. For now, that's all the information we have for you but if you'd like to keep up to date with other local opportunities that crop up for young artists, you can subscribe to GENERATION, a brand new newsletter tailor made for Exeter's young people by our brilliant Executive Producer, Katherine.

Speak soon, 

Lucy & Katherine
