As we are saying a slightly tearful goodbye to the summer, thankfully we are now getting down to the nitty gritty on the Collaborative Touring Network.
CTN is a national touring theatre network, led by us, working alongside partners around The UK.
We are currently in the final stages of interviews with some simply outstanding artists to decide who we will work with to produce a nationally significant show. In terms of projects happening right now, it’s something to be very excited about. In terms of the type of work we’ve all been undertaking of late, it feels raw and positive! Although I have to remain tight-lipped about the identity of the artists in the mix, what I can say is that the process so far has been a saving grace for us creatives so we can only imagine the buzz this work will bring to our building in the coming months. Watch this space, or indeed any alternative space in the Wigan area.
