Theatre Delicatessen | Inspiring artists. Transforming spaces.

Emerging Artists

Theatre Delicatessen exists to support theatremakers and artists in the creation of their work.

Our main focus is on supporting emerging theatremakers working at the cutting edge of theatre practice, particularly those working in non-traditional forms – whether that be through exploring the nature of the theatrical space, immersive experiences, game-playing, live art or other manifestations of performance which cross boundaries and defy definition.

Experimental, Radical and Subverting the Expectation

So, before contacting us, please think carefully about whether your practice fits this remit. For instance new writing isn’t really what we are into, and there are so many other opportunities for you to develop your work that it is not something we prioritise.

Supporting the art is the vehicle for developing the artist

We also don’t tend to support individual projects, as such. We are most interested in building a longer term relationship with artists, and supporting them through their development.

Emerging is not the same as young

The one thing that we don’t consider is age. ‘Emerging’ for us does not mean ‘young’. We are interested in artists and theatremakers who are developing new work, whose practice is not as yet sustainable.

We want to see your work… Or at least how you work
